Moving DNN from subfolder to root, results into 500.19 Error

Discussion in 'Third-party applications' started by Ripei, May 3, 2014.

  1. Hello,
    I moved my DNN installation from a subfolder to the root folder and the website seems to be running fine. However, I cannot edit anything and everytime I try to access the settings from a Module I get a 500.19 error. Obviously, the path to the web.config is still the old one (including the "\home\") but how do I change this path? Here is the exact error, I get when accessing the modules pages:

    Detailed Error Information:
    Module IIS Web Core
    Notification BeginRequest
    Handler Not yet determined
    Error Code 0x80070003
    Config Error Cannot read configuration file
    Config File \\?\E:\mypath\home\web.config
    Requested URL
    Physical Path E:\web\mypath\home\ctl\Module\ModuleId\907
    Logon Method Not yet determined
    Logon User Not yet determined

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello Ripei,

    Installing DNN in a subdirectory and moving to the root directory can get a little tricky and confusing and cause the type of problems you're seeing.

    If possible it would be best to installing it from scratch onto the root.

    If it's too late and you already set up your DNN web site and you have it set the way you like it you might not want to start from scratch.

    I did find someone else with the same issue on the DNN forum here:

    Although that post is really old.

    But this web page article seems a lot helpful here:
