  1. Has anyone been able to successfully set up dasBlog on their site? I haven't been able to get it to work yet. Any other blogs?

    Basically any .net web application should work on our servers. Have you tried

    Try downloading the free blogging application and follow the instructions on how to set it up on a shared hosting platform.
  3. I also recommend BlogEngine.NET.
  4. I have migrated site running BlogEngine.NET under half an hour without a glitch.
  5. Cool. And unfortunately (re: your blog post), your experience with GoDaddy is not that unusual.
  6. Ruslan is here. :eek: Yooooohooooo

    /me very happy :)

    BlogEngine.Net is actually one of the reasons I acquired Winhost hosting. :cool:

  7. Rtur,
    I went to your and saw a reference to to your darkblog. I tried to go there and got an error page indicating the page could not be found. This is exactly what I see when I try to install the on a subfolder in one of my websites on Winhost. I've actually created multiple domain pointers for multiple websites and use the URL ReWrite to be able to go directly to those pointed domains. If I put the BlogEngine in a subfolder of one of those, then I get an error indicating it can't find the page. Any thoughts? Do you have multiple websites? If not, then my question probably doesn't apply. Thanks, Bob

    Did you set the subfolder as an Application Starting Point using the Application Starting Point tool in the Control Panel Site Manager?
  9. Yes, I have set it as an application starting point. I think the problem is that I have my domainacocunt which has multiple domain pointers and each of these pointed domains has its own folder under the main account. In each case I've used the URL Rewrite for that folder/domain. But then I added a folder under one of those in which I want to put the blogging software.

    +------PointedDomain1 (made this an application starting point )
    | |
    | +------BlogFolder (made application starting point too!)

    I tried creating a URL Rewrite for the BlogFolder too, but it cannot be found.

    I may be setting up the UrlReWrite incorrectly for the BlogFolder.

    It sounds like you have two issues occurring that may not be related to each other. It is unwise to jump into conclusion simply because two events are happening at the same time. First, try navigating to the folder directly. If the blogging software is in a folder called blogengine try typing in your browser If you still get an error then it is most likely you did not setup the database correctly or you did not upload all the necessary files to run this application. If did not get an error then we can narrow down the redirect rules you may have setup and we can go from there.
  11. I used rchLibrary blog.
    It will be up soon once I'm done with the layouts ^_^
    It is not open source, but as long as my SEO things can be implemented, I'll ditch DNN it over
  12. I did try going directly to the blogengine folder and it works. So assuming my hosting account is and assuming my domain pointed web is n8nt, here is what I did:

    go to

    This works - gives me the BlogEngine.NET 1.5.0 page.

    Now, if I try to go to I get nothing.

    I created this small aspx file that looks like:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

    <html xmlns="">
    <head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">

    <a href="blogengine/default.aspx">BLOG</a>


    When I load this up and click on the BLOG link I see my address line go to: - but nothing happens. It stays open on the same page as it was.

    If I click it again then I see the name in the browswer grow by /blogengine to a path like this:

    I've tried a variety of things for the rewrite rules. Here is what I currently have:

    <remove name="Istumbled Test" />
    <rule name="n8nt Blog Rule" stopProcessing="false">
    <match url=".*" />
    <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="" />
    <add input="{URL}" pattern="blogengine" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="n8nt/blogengine" />
