Hey Guys total newbie here trying to figure out how to install this forum. I folllowed instructions and keep getting :


Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


I tried setting customErrors tag to off...didnt work. I am using a Hosting server.. (1and1) I put the folder of the forum in : /android/forum -> just pasted everything in the forum folder. Took the default.config, and added the connection string and then saved as web.config :



<add name="AndroidConnectionString" connectionString=""Data Source=datasource;Initial Catalog=dbname;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=user;Password=pass;"
providerName="provider" />


I also put the BIN folder in my Root directory... Can anybody help with instructions a little more clear than the instructions on this site??
