I don't know what happened.  I have a windows server 2008 R2 enterprise running .net and wordpress websites.  I just installed the Wordpress stuff on the server.  Now when I go to a site that is .net I get This error:

Server Error in '/' Application.

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: Host 'CIDDDEV.ad.unc.edu' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

Source Error:


An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Source File: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\Config\machine.config    Line: 177

Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.5485; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.5491


I don't know what to do about this.
