I just started with the EpiServer. Therefore, many questions. Please help.
I created a simple project in VS2008 with one form of Default.aspx for EpiServer. I put in connectionStrings.config path to the database. Via the VS2008 project runs without errors. But when I copied the project folder in C:\EPiServer\Sites\MyEPiServerSite\MySimpleProject Browse through and made the IIS? I got the error:
Exception details: ConfigurationErrorsException: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition = 'MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS. (C:\EPiServer\Sites\MyEPiServerSite\epiproperty\web.config line 183)
How to set up my simple project to work via IIS. I want to run the project from the website IIS\Web Sites\MyEPiServerSite\MySimpleProject\Default.aspx
The simplest way I know to start a project is to install a site with Deployment Centre and also add the public templates. After that just open PublicTemplates.csproj in VS and start programming. This way the Deployment Centre sets up a site for you the correct way. I recomend you read this guide: http://www.frederikvig.com/2009/12/introduction-create-an-episerver-site-from-scratch/
