Error prompt when on Ubuntu + Apache + Mono

I am going to use Mojo Portal on Ubuntu, I have already installed Apache and Mono, I tested it and it has no problem to run asp.net in this platform. Mono version :  Mono-runtime 2.10.8.1.5, Mod-mono mono-apache-server2 2.10-2.1

When I open XXX/Setup/Default.aspx. the browser display a error which I can't find solution on google. Can someone help.

The error message is "The section <siteMap> can't be defined in this configuration file (the allowed definition context is 'MachineToApplication'). (/var/www/Mojo/wwwroot/Web.config line 737)"

Screen Capture: http://sharesend.com/wd4nxds6

Thanks.

Re: Error prompt when on Ubuntu + Apache + Mono

Sorry, after many years of trying to support Mono we gave up on it because there are always bugs like this in Mono's implementation of ASP.NET.

You may find it works ok for very simple ASP.NET applications using very limited features of ASP.NET but there have always been problems trying to use Mono for more complex ASP.NET applications.

Re: Error prompt when on Ubuntu + Apache + Mono

This post by Scott Hanselman gives hope that Mono may become a platform that just works in the future, that would be nice! Really the only kind of thing we should have to worry about to support Mono is things like file and url case sensitivity and always using Path.DirectorySeparatorChar instead of "\" in file system operations to be platform neutral. But historically there have always been many bugs to try to work around or try to report or create test cases for.
