any help would be appreciated!
I'm trying to run BE 2.9 in a folder that is configured as an app("Virtual Directory" in Arvixe control panel). When I hit the root of that folder, I only get a blank page.
debug is set to true, as well as IIS errors, but I'm not getting any errors or anything. When I view page source, there is absolutely nothing. I'd almost RATHER have an error to work with.
again, any ideas or thoughts would be a great help.
