I put yaf into ~/forum. Where in the web.config file do I include the root element?

I put it directly under //configuration but I received the following error upon loading default in the install folder:

WebDev.WebServer40.exe has stopped working

Please help.

Open up your app.config file -- that controls most of the YAF specific settings. You will want to also remove the change you made to your web.config file.

Thanks squirrel. I edited Optional File Root Key and Optional AppRoot to value="~/forum" in app.config.

Now I receive: Server Error in '/Site' Application

The only description is: Runtime Error

What am I missing?

You will need to edit your web.config file and look for the section below:

<customErrors defaultRedirect="Error.aspx" mode="RemoteOnly"/>

change it to:

<customErrors defaultRedirect="Error.aspx" mode="Off"/>

Then you will get 'full errors' from the application -- we can go from there.

Something in your app.config is causing an issue and ASP.NET is failing to load it. I would check it against the default one in the package and go from there.

Once you're one getting everything setup, before you go live, you will want to go back into your web.config one last time and reset the CustomErrors tag back to "RemoteOnly" so that the system does not give out information it shouldn't be. The CustomErrors will use YAF's error page to display a friendly error to the viewers and log exceptions into your database (which you can check on using your Admin panel inside YAF).

Before getting to integration. I was playing around with the host settings. When saving settings I receive the following error:

A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (forum$ctl02$HostSettingsTabs$View7$UserBox="
