Web Platform Installer not working

Hello Everyone,

   I recently did an evaluation install of MojoPortal.  The server I was using had a catastrophic failure.  I have everything backed up, no worries there.  The problem is MojoPortal appears to no longer be available on the Web Platform Installer. WPI appears to pull from mojoportal.codeplex.com, which says the file may have been deleted from the server. Any chance those installation files could be restored to allow a Web Platform Installation?
   Alternatively, Is there a script available that will install MojoPortal (including dependents) in a similar fashion to WPI?  Specifically,  I'm having trouble getting SQL Express 2008 R2 to install properly so a MojoPortal manual installation process can proceed. 

   Any help would be appreciated.  

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Web Platform Installer not working

OK, so I worked through the SQL Express installation issue.  I now have my MojoPortal database restored. (I have done this before, when moving to a different server.)  I'm trying to load /Setup/Default.aspx (Or any MojoPortal page) and I'm now getting an IIS HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error.  The details say "The configuration section 'system.web.extensions' cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave

Re: Web Platform Installer not working

that kind of error means you are using .NET 3.5. You need to use .NET 4.5 aka .NET 4

check the application pool settings

Re: Web Platform Installer not working

Hi Joe,

   Thank you for the reply.  I am using ".NET Framework v4.0.30319".  It was working on the old server, but not now.  I'm afraid I might have missed something doing the manual install. (Since MojoPortal is no longer installing via Web Platform Installer: Error="Back to Project Home There was an error downloading the file. It may have been deleted from the server.")

   I will go back and double check everything I did for the manual install.

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Web Platform Installer not working

Ugh... Here is the error message I am getting now:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An exception occurred while processing your request. Additionally, another exception occurred while executing the custom error page for the first exception. The request has been terminated. 

It looks like I have broken the custom error page code now. :)  

Sooooooo.... Any chance of briefly putting back up the files on codeplex, so I can do a quick Web Platform Install with a clean server?

Thanks,
Dave
