Hello. I am getting an error saying Host 'CIDDWEB.ad.unc.edu' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server.   Then I get this source error: <siteMap>
Line 176:      <providers>
Line 177:        <add name="MySqlSiteMapProvider" type="MySql.Web.SiteMap.MySqlSiteMapProvider, MySql.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d" connectionStringName="LocalMySqlServer" applicationName="/" />
Line 178:      </providers>
Line 179:    </siteMap>
 and it says it is coming from machine.config.  I have never done anything with this file.  I did recently install WordPress using the Web Platform installer.  I assume this made some entries in that file for MySQL.  Other than that I have not done anything with MySQL and that site doesn't access MySQL it should be accessing a Microsoft T SQL server.   I don't have much experience at all with this and I have never done anything with machine.config.
