YAF version
Hosting platform godaddy.com?
.NET framework NET v2.0
I don't understand where to insert our old web.config settings into the new one. ours look nothing like the new recommended config files.
I attached our old one and the one I attempted

also i added the custom error line but I still recive:
Server Error in '/yetanotherforum' 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 tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

I assume you are upgrading from a previous version of YEF? If so have a look at this post


Or if you want a new install look at this post:
