    We are using Sitefinity 4 as a child application inside of an existing Sitefinity 3.7 project and are having problems accessing the Sitefinity 4 homepage.  For example if we go to domain.com/Sitefinity4Site it is redirecting to the Sitefinity login page.  Once you login you are redirected to the page domain.com/.../cmsentrypoint.aspx which is then giving the error shown in the attached screen shot.   Also, if you are already logged into Sitefinity and try to go to domain.com/.../ you are redirected to the parent's homepage (which does not exist inside the child application).   The correct home page is 'set' inside the child application's page manager.

    Any ideas on why this is happening?  If I browse directly to the full address of the home page, everything works as normal.

    Thank you!
  • Hi Kevin,

    Most probably the reason for this is the Asp.Net configuration inheritance - the configuration of the parent application is inherited in the child one. This comes from Asp.Net.Here is an article that describes how you could break the web.config inheritance - http://www.kowitz.net/archive/2007/05/16/stopping-asp-net-web-config-inheritance

    As you can see you might need to use clear and remove tags as well.
    Note: it is recommended that both the application are the same .NET version.



    All the best,

  • HI Ivan,

    Thank you for the reply.  By adding <location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false"> I was able to get the child application working as expected, but I ran into a new problem in the parent application.  I now get the error message attached (RadScriptManager requires a HttpHandler registration).  Why would adding the location information cause this to error for?  I also attached that portion of my web.config.

    Thank you,
    Kevin

  • Hello Kevin,

    Try removing the WebResource handler mapping. Then restart the application, add it again together with DialogHandler

    <add verb="*" path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource" validate="false" />
    <add path="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler.aspx" verb="*" type="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler" validate="false" />

    You should also have the following lines in the 4.x based website.
