First, thanks again for your time.
I¬m troubleshooting on my own site first before mucking around. This is an HC controlled site.
Followed the steps you provided, including re-verifying all security settings for the folders in the file system.
The ISAPI rewrite installed without a hitch, my question to you was: did you configure the filter beyond just installing it? If so, I¬ll dig into the documentation and adjust accordingly.
After all the steps have been applied, when first accessing a site with DNN, the DNN installer proceeds successfully. any subsequent visit to the new DNN site gets an "An unhandled error has occurred" message.
I checked the eventlog in SQL under the DNN database and this error is getting logged, so SQL connection is ok.
Again, thanks for your help Chris. HC support, I¬ve read somewhere throughout the forums that DNN may be one of the supported "free" portals the new HC 7 may support as a feature to customers, any insight on this? We¬ve installed many DNN sites for customers on non-HC controlled sites and it¬s pretty straight forward. Not sure what¬s going on with HC and the sites here.
