Installation issue

Hi !

I have Windows XP SP3
VS 2010, SQL Server 2008 and mojoportal-2-3-5-5-mssql-net40-deploymentfiles


I'd like to install mojoPortal on local machine.

I created database and user(following the video), placed the wwwroot folder from

the package on the C drive, edited user.config file, assigned all permissions

for ASPNET user in Data and wwwroot folder. In IIS 5.1 Manager for Default Web

Site I assigned the location of wwwroot folder.(Maybe creating the virtual

directory is the best way for the last step?)

Then I entered http://localhost/Setup/Default.aspx

It caused the next message:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://127.0.0.1/Setup/Default.aspx
Line Number 1, Column 2:<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="false" EnableSessionState="False" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="mojoPortal.Web.UI.Pages.SetupHome" %>
 

Could you help with this please ?

Re: Installation issue

In addition to the link Vince mentioned: http://www.mojoportal.com/iiswebsetup.aspx which may help, make sure you actually have installed .NET 4 and configured your site with a .NET 4 application pool.

Best,

Joe

Re: Installation issue

I see you are using ASP.NET 4.0 and I am sure you have it installed on your PC.

However, when I used Windows XP I always had to install the framework into IIS by running the following at the Command line from the folder of the version of the framework I wanted installed.

aspnet_regiis -i

This installs the chosen framework into IIS

Sometimes when I had problems I would have to re-install the framework to IIS again.

Also I have heard that ASP.NET 4.0 is not that IIS 5/6 friendly.  So if all else fails you may want to try installing mojoPortal  for Dot.Net 3.5

Re: Installation issue

I know what is running commands at the Command line, but what is running commands at the Command line from the folder?

I should open this folder and what next?

Re: Installation issue

He means that you should be in the appropriate folder for the ASP.NET version you are installing. For instance, my .NET 4 installation is in:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319

So, I'd open a command prompt, them type "cd \Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319" to get to the directory.

Re: Installation issue

Ok, I did it, the folder was opened. It already has the network installed.

The original message was

"However, when I used Windows XP I always had to install the framework into IIS by running the following at the Command line from the folder of the version of the framework I wanted installed.

aspnet_regiis -i

What should I do with aspnet_regiis -i

Re: Installation issue

That's what you type into the command prompt window after navigating to the ASP.NET directory. It will (re)install the framework into IIS for you.

Re: Installation issue

Hi John

I apologize for not being more detailed.

Here is a link to a Site with a Video that explains this whole ASP.NET/IIS process in painstaking detail (25 min).

This will make it perfectly clear.

Good luck with this!
