  • Good day to you all.

    Unfortunately SF 4.0 does not run with my shared hosting provider in Switzerland. I am very happy with them but if I don't get 4.0 running it would mean that I would have to switch - The bad thing is that I probably won't find another one this good in Switzerland.

    I am looking for alternatives. Since I did not find any in Switzerland I have been looking at alternatives in the US based on the Hosting Partner links on www.sitefintiy.com

    I would like m6.net from the look of the site - some hosting partner sites just look terrible overloaded and outdated.

    m6.net seems to have a good package but when searching the web a bit I find a lot of older reviews that would make Telerik pull the link from the site.

    But this could be old stuff and everything could have changed.

    So my question is if any of you is hosting with m6.net and if they can provide feedback.

    I think it would be better if you would send your feedback per mail to mb @ marktold.com in order not to have any bad feedback here - if such exists.

    I do appreciate your feedback. Please do not post or send other recomandations unless they are in Switzerland. At the moment I am just looking at m6.net

    Regards

  • Hallo together

    It seems that the final version of SF 4.0 will only target .net 4.0. Since m6.net does not support the 4.0 .net framework this hoster is no option anymore.

    Regards Markus
  • Hello Markus Berchtold,

    Features like Workflow Foundation 4.0. require .NET Framework 4.0. There are many improvements in the API of .NET Framework 4.0 like new types introduced with visual C# 2010

    All the best,

  • Dear Ivan

    Thanks a lot for your clarification.

    Is the asp.net mvc framework needed to run sitefinity on the server.

    And if yes is it part of the .net 4.0 framework or a seperate framework that needs to be installed.

    Regards Markus

    PS: I asked my provider to add the wildcard isapi mapping and .svc mapping and will see if this will help and if he can implement it to all Servers.
  • Hello Markus,

    We do not require ASP.NET MVC installed. It is a separate installation ASP.NET MVC and if you want to use MVC with other applications you should have .NET Framework installed.

  • Dear Ivan

    I am still trying to get SF beta 4 running with my provider.

    I now get the error:

    Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Sitefinity' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (d:\berchtold\public_html\web.config line 84)


    Line 82:     <httpModules>
    Line 83:       <add name="ScriptModule" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
    Line 84:       <add name="Sitefinity" type="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.SitefinityHttpModuleIIS6, Telerik.Sitefinity"/>
    Line 85:       <add name="RadUploadModule" type="Telerik.Web.UI.RadUploadHttpModule, Telerik.Web.UI"/>
    Line 86:       <add name="SitefinityAnalyticsModule" type="Telerik.Sitefinity.Analytics.Server.DependencyResolution.Module.DependencyRegistrarHttpModule, Telerik.Sitefinity.Analytics.Server.DependencyResolution"/>

    I asked them to enter the wildcard.

    Any idea?

  • Hello Markus Berchtold,

    It seems that there is some problem with the dependent assemblies in the bin folder. Can you please perform the following:

    1) Open your Sitefinity project in Visual Studio.
    2) Expand the References node and see if there are any broken references.
    3) Open the _EmptyProject directory which is created by the project manager and copy the contents of the bin folder to the bin folder of your project.
    4) Add all binaries from the bin folder as references in your Sitefinity project.
    5) Build the web application and FTP it to the host.

  • Dear Radoslav

    Indeed there was a broken ref.

    I think I did all the steps you recomendet. But still get the same errror.

    Again my provider is trying to get SF running in the shared envirement. Adding Wildcard as recomended and other mapping.

    Hello Markus Berchtold,

    Please take a look at the attached image on which assemblies the Telerik.Sitefinity.dll depends on. Make sure that those assemblies are referenced or on your hoster's GAC (non-Telerik assemblies).

    Sincerely yours,

  • Thanks, Radoslav

    This formula worked for me when getting similar errors!
  • Dear Radoslav

    From x-checking it seems system.web.abstraction is missing on my shard hosting server.

    I will try to get in tough with my provider to see if they can fix it and hope it will be working thereafter.

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
            For Each a As System.Reflection.Assembly In AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies()
                Literal1.text += (a.FullName + "<br/>")
            Next
      
        End Sub

    Copied the code here for other (and later reference for me :-))

  • Hello Radoslav, Ivan

    I still get the error on http://www.berchtold.net/sitefinity

    Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Sitefinity' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (d:\berchtold\public_html\web.config line 113)

    But now it seems all needed assemblies are on the server http://www.berchtold.net/test.aspx

    Any idea. Still no luck running RC with my provider. Very frustrating.

  • Hi Markus Berchtold,

    We are running out of ideas.

    We have also verified that you have all the assemblies We have used this tool which checks assembly dependencies and also shows the dependencies of dependent assemblies. The only one missing is Newtonsoft.Json, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed which is an assembly referenced in Twitterizer2 assembly.

  • Dear Radsolav

    Is Twitterizer2 delivered with Sitefinity, or is it something my provider just has on the server.

    I would assume the later.

    Twitterizer2 was not listed in your post back a couple of post where you included a grafic what telerik.sitefinity depends on.

    And since I have everything on the server the error message does not really give a good clue.

    Any idea where to look?

    Markus
