Recieving error: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level
Posted on 2012-03-19
I own a website. The parent site work great. However, I need to create a folder or site within the parent site. The site within the main site needs to have it own login and webconfig file. I created the new site using Visual Studio 2010. So what I have is site 1 and then I used Visual Studio to create site 1a within site 1. The layout works without any problems on my laptop locally but when I upload my folder to my host provider, Discount ASP, and I try to hit one of the pages within site 1a I receive the following error: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level..........
Is there a way around this. I do not want to create a new site in a different scripting language. The following is also part of the error:
Line 28: <compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
Line 30: <authentication mode="Forms">
Line 31: <forms loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" timeout="2880" />
Line 32: </authentication>
