Re: Unsuccessfully moved mojo from one directory to another

You need to configure the directory you moved the site to as an Application in IIS. I wouldn't recommed moving mojoPortal to a Virtual Directory after the site has been built. You will run into all kinds of issues with the application's path (URL).

If you must move mojo to somewhere other than the root of your website. The best option would be to use a sub-domain attached to a separate website.

HTH,

Re: Unsuccessfully moved mojo from one directory to another

Hi,

Joe is right its a problem moving a site with existing content from a root level url to a virtual directory because all the page urls would have the folder in the url if the content was created in a virtual directory but since the content was created in the root it will be missing the folder name part of the url for all urls in the mp_FriendlyUrls table and mp_Pages table and mp_Blogs table etc. If you don't have much content yet it wil be easier to start with a clean db in the site after moving it to a virtual directory, otherwise it can be fixed by adding the folder into all the urls in the tables mentioned.

However the error you report is a very common .NET error that happens if you have one .NET app running in the root and another running in a sub directory then the web.config settings from the root will interfere. You can get around it by wrapping the system.web section in the root site's web.config in a location element and disabling inheritance in child sites. Do a little googling about the web.config location element and how it is used.

Hope it helps,

Joe
