4.x installation problems

  • 4.x installation problems
  • I just installed 4.x on a fresh Windows 2008 64-bit server w/ IIS 7 - all updates current.

    I run project manager to create a project and when complete, brings up a page:

    Problem #1

    localhost:13628/.../Startup

    All is says is:

    Thank you for visiting our web site.
    Please return soon for updates.

    That's it.

    Problem #2

    Created a IIS site using the newly created site. I followed the documentation exactly and added the built-in "NETWORK SERVICE" account (asp.net identity) to have permissions on the project folder.

    When I browse to the site, I get the dreaded

    "Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\<project>\App_Data\Sitefinity\Configuration\SecurityConfig.config' is denied."

    I've done all steps required to supposed resolve this error, but to no avail.

    At this point, neither the built-in server nor IIS is working.


    I've previously installed on my Windows 7 desktop and had no issues, so I'm quite perplexed.
  • I knew I would figure it out as soon as I posted. The ASP.net identity needs "write" access. That's not documented anywhere that I saw.
  • Hi Brian,

    Ok we will add it to the documentation.  Basically App_Data is used as a data-related content storage and by default you should have write access there. The problem #1 could be result of the dots that you have in the name of your project.

    All the best,
