Logging in causes security exception

I have version 2.2.8.1 MSSQL. Installed on a FullTrust 2008 server.  I am moving it to a 2003 MediumTrust server.


I have everything moved over and the site works, but when I go to log in (PW stored hashed/not recoverable) I get the following error:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Security Exception
Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.

Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.KeyContainerPermission, mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.

Source Error:

Help?

Have you followed the directions for setting up your site to use medium trust?

HTH,

All but the App_Data change... is that really required?

Re: Logging in causes security exception

Hi,

Version 2.2.8.1 is very old. It is quite possible it had a bug running under medium trust.

I would suggest:

  • review the release notes of all version since 2.2.8.1 for any upgrade notes
  • make sure .NET 3.5 SP1 is on both machines
  • backup everything on the Win 2008 machine so you can restore to your current state if something goes wrong
  • upgrade the win 2008 machine to the latest version 2.3.3.4.
  • add the ScriptLoader control to your layout.Master if it does not already have it, copy from one of the skins under /Data/skins in the new version
  • make sure everything is working ok, if you have any issues post in the forums
  • Then try the migration again

Hope it helps,

Joe

Upgrade did the trick.
