long time site goes to setup/default.aspx instead of home page

The host of a long existent mojoPortal site had difficulty with their sql server backend, which has been resolved. Ever since, the site, when accessed, goes to http://firstbusinesscoop.com/Setup/Default.aspx.  (please visit to confirm)

this occurs even though   <add key="DisableSetup" value="true" />  (I checked multiple times to ensure this is the case in user.config and web.config) and was not over ridden

and no admin login has occurred

Could the host done something to cause this behavior?  If not -- would updating the site to the latest verisons be a wise move?

Does the setup page say anything about not being able to connect to the database?

Re: long time site goes to setup/default.aspx instead of home page

disable setup setting just prevents the setup page from executing any setup actions, it does not prevent the redirect to setup that will occur if the site cannot connect to the database. This should not happen on a regular basis under normal operating circumstances. The evidence suggests that there are still problems with the database, you are not getting a reliable connection to the db if that is happening. Odds are that you will see database timeout or other database errors in the log.

Re: long time site goes to setup/default.aspx instead of home page

Joe & Joe -- thanks for your replies.  This issue resolved itself -- evidently the host site cache was very persistent and kept the previous state with the unconnected DB and the setup disable = false.  Once the cache cleared -- all is well.

Again -- thanks!
