I'm trying to publish a project to the web and have the following error in my web.config:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.  This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Source Error:
Line 198:          To disable cookies, set sessionState cookieless="true".
Line 199:    -->
Line 200:    <sessionState mode="StateServer" stateConnectionString="tcpip=127.0.0.1:42424" sqlConnectionString="data source=127.0.0.1;user id=sa;password=" cookieless="false" timeout="30" />
Line 201:    <!--  GLOBALIZATION
Line 202:          This section sets the globalization settings of the application.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I also got the same error when <sessionState mode="InProc"...
Does anyone know how to remedy this problem?

First, Have you configured your application folder as virtual directory in IIS?
Open IIS manager > right click on the folder where you have installed your web application and goto Properties > In Home Directory tab click on "Create Application" button. This should create the virtual directory for you. Then goto Directory security tab and enable Integrated windows authentication

Hope this should fix your issue
