After converting to FBA for SharePoint 2010 with the PowerShell Script, I can no longer get into my default web-app, I’m logged in, but just get this access denied error (if that makes sense)

To be honest I have no idea where to even start with this. Any ideas would be most welcome?

Thanks

2010 FBA works under the claims mode, you will need to convert your FBA users to claims users...

You should be able to use both forms of authentication though. I have a forms user and an AD user and neither work.

I have added the AD admin user as the collection admin and i have specifically given the AD admin full permissions to the web application (not sure if that is something to do with login) and still nothing

The claims comment is true for both AD and FBA users. Give the powershell migrate command a try.

Thanks for getting back.

I have already made the migration using the command... after that I could no longer use the domain admin user to get in... as i said the error was, logged in as domain\administrator access denied.

Since then i have set up the FBA users and they get the same error. what should I look for, as i said before the site collection admin is still the domain admin... how the hell can access be denied... just doesn't make any sense

If anyone can tell me what that Power-shell script changes that could lock out the domain admin even if they are enabled as collection admin of the site. I would be much appreciative

Can you check if the site collection is locked by any chance? If yes, then Unlock the site collection

Ok I have del the website and recreated it using the same database WSS_Content, but now all i get is an error.

An unexpected error has occurred.

and that's it, no info in the windows logs, no nothing... im really starting to hate SharePoint lol

When I was recreating the web app, i didn't know what service credentials to use. SO i just used Network Service. would this have been the default? (to be fair it was the only one i could choose)

Ok went through the rest of the set up guide for FBA

http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/

and now it's asking for a logon. but after inputting the my credentials i get a blank page... the only hint of failure is in the address bar

%252F%255Flayouts%252FAccessDenied%252Easp (let me know if you want the full thing.

Like what the hell? how could this power shell script kill it so much?

The last step in that guide says that I need to reset the default provider to "i", however even after doing that im still getting.
