I have an operational website hosted by Vortex which has a issue in one function. I copied the site onto my local machine and created an IIS website for it. When I attempt to open the site, I get either nothing in my browser (http://localhost:8000/) or XML Parsing Error: no root element found Location: http://localhost:8000/default.aspx
Line Number 1, Column 1(http://localhost:8000/default.aspx).
My only web.config modification was to point to my local db (a clone of my production db).
There is one security log entry:
Credential Manager credentials were read.
Security ID: DESKTOP-QQOLG5N\Abbot
Account Name: Abbot
Account Domain: DESKTOP-QQOLG5N
Logon ID: 0x2091F4
Read Operation: Read Credential
This event occurs when a user performs a read operation on stored credentials in Credential Manager.
Not sure how to proceed?
Thanks - Abbott
Here's the IIS screen
if the only web.config modification from a production web.config then debug messages are most likely off. For localhost debugging setting compilation debug to true and setting httpErrors errorMode to Detailed can certainly help given the more detailed error messages.
The main common thing when making a local debug environment coming from production is SQL permissions between severs are different even if the user names look the same. Therefore security might need to be checked/redone/updated.
The web.config seems to work on another machine ... I'm getting a sql login error using integrated security. I'll play with sql login. Later.
All is well with sql. Reboots worked.
