Version 1.3.1 Problems

Jun 28, 2008 at 9:59 PM

I downloaded the lastest version 1.3.1
  - modified robots.txt
  - web.config (for sql provider and connection string)
  - copied the files to web server in sub folder (sub folder is IIS application) windows 2003 iis6
  - ran sql scripts in database
  - created a new user (admin)
  - the site is setup as 2.0

I have the following 3 problems and am stuck (i really like what i see for blogengine but getting frustrated)

 1.) when i navigate to the home page of the blog it is empty (no blog entries are shown).  I have created a few blank entries but it is still empty.  I can see the blog entries as they show up under recent posts and when i click on them they show properly

   If i enter the url http://www.{domain}.com/blog it redirects me to http://{domain}/blog/Default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 and doesnt show any posts.  If i enter in http://www.{domain}.com/blog/default.aspx I get the same result.

If i hit 'home' on my blog it shows the entries correct with the correct url of http://www.{domain}.com/blog  It seems aspxautodetectcookiesupport is messing something up. What is going on here?

  2.) I am using WLW Version 14.0.3913.522 and when i try to add my account i get the following error

      blog server error - server error 01 occurred
      invalid xmlrpc request (start index cannot be less than zero. Parameter name:startIndex

  3.) if i navigate to http://www.{domain}.com/blog/metaweblog.axd i get the following error

      <value>Invalid XMLRPC Request. (StartIndex cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: startIndex)</value> 

  I am not sure if 2 and 3 are related.

I have removed all files and database tables twice and have the same results after both installations. Any ideas would be very much appreciated.  Thanks
