Setup issue with Win Authentication

Hello,

I am very glad I came across this project and want to contribute in anyway I can. My issue is I have installed the project files multiple times through both Webmatrix and FTP. Each time from a clean set of install files. No matter how I attempt to install it, I am asked by the webserver for windows authorization credentials when attempting to access any page after the install is complete, even the homepage. Each time I install setup runs without any errors and without any prompts. I am using SQLce

Before each install I cleaned all the files from the root of the server. It is remotely hosted and the hosting company insist that the App-Data and Data directories have full read/write access (each time I confirm this). The hosting company does not provide me with access to modify the permissions myself, I need to open a support ticket each time. The pages work just fine when I cancel past the prompts, but obviously this is not acceptable.

The application can be viewed at www.lifetyme.com

I cant imagine I'm the only one who has experienced this but I cannot find anything in the Forums. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Setup issue with Win Authentication

This is caused by IIS web site configuration beyond the control of mojoPortal. You need to configure the site for anonymous authentication and disable digest or basic authentication.

The user that is the identity on the application pool needs full control over the /Data folder but it must also have at least read permission on all other files and folders to avoid such prompts.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Setup issue with Win Authentication

Good morning,

Just got off the phone with the hosting company tech support. After 24 hours of trying someone said they found the little checkbox in IIS for the authentication settings of that folder. Success! Look forward to working with this going forward.
