BE.NET on Fasthosts

Topics: ASP.NET 2.0

Kind of a random question, but has anyone had any experience with getting BlogEngine.NET running on I've tried a number of times using both 1.4 and 1.5 to get it to run however all I end up getting are 500 Internal Server Errors when I try to load default.aspx. It's a shared hosting so I have no control over permissions and have only one Application domain (the root of the website).

OK got to the bottom of the problem. Fasthosts doesn't allow any entries in the Handlers or Modules sections of the Web.Config file.

Do I need to make any code changes to make BE.NET work without these entries?

Change hosting provider... take a look at

Great UK based hosting company - used them for a few sites :)

As another option I got this up and running pretty quickly using eukhost on shared hosting.  Had to ask them to set the folder as an app and set the folder permissions but once that was done it worked great :-)
