Is there a place i need to make a modification for this.  I moved the site to a different folder and now i get the following error.

[DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'S:\WWWROOT\Blend\LT\Website\ClientResources\ClientResources\packages.config'.]

    Paths are configured in the virtualPathProviders section of EPiServerFramework.config and there's corresponding configuration for the module virtual path roots in the section of web.config.

    Which actions did you perform in the move? I think a bit more information is required to figure out which additional steps are needed.

    Could you check fololowing configuration option in EPiServerFramework.config?


    <appData basePath="C:\EPiServer\VPP\SiteName" />


    Does it contains correct base path for site VPPs folder?

    Dmytro's solution fix the problem for me, thanks! I didn't notice that EPiServer tries to create the VPP (or AppData) folder if it does not exist.

    It didnt fix my problem :)

    It happens when someone tries to login, and then every page is broken. I am hunting maybe for a episerver edit/admin part that fucks it up.

    I copied all the missing stuff in the episerverframwork config from a working clean Epi7 project, the problem-project is an upgrade-project.

    Is it just me that gets this problem?

    I think it is the basepath, because I suddenly got the same problem on a fresh project, now I use \\xx.xx.xx.xx\vpp\[Project Name], but I have to change to the physical path, or so I think. I am going back to this problem project next week, and I hope to fix it quick.

    Did you find a solution for the problem project, Kristian?

    Yeah, my module folder in the VPP Folder was empty, and after copying over the files and dlls from my devPC it started to work.

    I figured it out because after fixing the basepath I could access all the site except edit/admin.

    Thank you so much, it worked!

    Made a new project and copied over the VPP folder to my projects appData path.

    Note to anyone wondering: Also works with a relative path.

    Just a note. I had this problem - the module folders were missing BUT i had to restart IIS before it worked. Puzzled me for half an hour or so

    Make sure your web.config contains the following too (version 7.19):

    <publicModules rootPath="~/modules/" autoDiscovery="Modules" />
    <protectedModules rootPath="~/backoffice/">
    <add name="Shell" />
    <add name="CMS" />
