I have only ftp access to the server . The Framework is 2.0.
The web.config data is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
        <connectionStrings>
            <add name="sSqlConn" connectionString="Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=INC123_new1;uid=INC123_gfatm;pwd=admin12!@" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
      </connectionStrings>
      <system.web>
    <customErrors mode="Off" ></customErrors>
                <compilation debug="true"/></system.web></configuration>


The error is:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

his error is only generated if you navigate quickly through the web application. that means, if you press an <asp:Button> before the whole page is loaded/rendered, then you get this posted error. if you wait until the whole page has finished rendering, then the postback generates no errors.

You can fix this by setting the EnableViewStateMAC property to false. Refer to more information about EnableViewStateMAC in the link given below:
