Blog as subfolder using Visual Studio 2010

Jun 15, 2012 at 3:08 PM

When we install the blog app as a subfolder in our web app we get the following exception when trying to open our existing web apps start page...

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.

I am sure this is because of some of the setting in the subfolder's web.config file. Can anyone tell me how to resolve this?

You'll need to mark the folder BE is in as a separate "application" in IIS.  If you're on IIS7, this can be done by expanding your main site, you'll then see the sub-folder BE is installed in.  Right click on that BE sub-folder, and choose "Convert to Application".
