What puzzles me is why is the IIS8.5 parser erroring on line 11 when this line has been commented out?

Re: installation error: IIS8.5 Server 2012 R2 SQL Server 12.0.4100

the latest asp.net framework installed is 4.5.1  -  the server is configured to have a minimal attack service - so only roles and services that are need are installed. I wonder if I am missing a needed service

Re: installation error: IIS8.5 Server 2012 R2 SQL Server 12.0.4100

Thanks to Joe Davis of i7Media -- I had two non-encoded ampersands in the MSSQLConnectionString in the user.config. This caused the site to crash with no tracing or error logging.   Once I stripped out the special characters from the password string, everything worked!

 

Thanks for your replies
