Hi, i am totally lost, am trying to install yet another forum and am having config errors also when i install on my server i am getting an error with the authientication error on line 30.

I have installed and sucessfully created the database with sql server 2005, i have also copied across the web.config from the configs folder, now i didn't create the forum as a virtual folder and have changed the app.config to point towards the root folder, i have copied the bin files to the bin directory. When i try to install from the directory i'm getting this server error.
