I have tested my ASP.NET application before and worked on my IIS and WebMatrix Application. But Now that I have put it on a web hosting site. I get the following error. I have transferred the required webmatrix dlls. But I keep getting this error.

I think that it has to do something with my web.config file's path attribute which is set to path="/".


I will point anyone who can figure this out or help out...


Thanks in Advance.

Here is the error:






Server Error in '/' Application.

Sounds like your connectionstring may be pointing to an incorrect location.  What database are you using?  If it is access, you should use Server.MapPath when creating the connectionstring.

Just output  server.MapPath to a label or something.. and see what address it gives.   Usually it gives the address where the aspx file is. Make changes accordingly, to get to your database file.

you have to set up your app in IIS.
go to IIS manager, rightclick your app folder and hit properties, then under the Directory tab, in the Application Settings region hit the Create button.
that should work.
