Problem with Website Transfer

Discussion in 'C#' started by schwarzes, Jul 18, 2010.

    Hello,

    I have moved an ASP application to another hosting.

    Uploaded the files via FTP, uploaded the database backup in the new database, changed the database config in the web.config file. But my website is not loading. Can anyone tell me if I missed something.

    This is my domain.

    Thanks.

    hmm, whats the error? I tried the url and it is redirecting the user to a custom error page. Can you disable the custom error page redirection, so that we get to see the actual error, which will have more information about the issue and would be easy to fix.

    Yeah, its in the web.config file. Search for the tag <customErrors, comment the whole node and add this node over there..

    <customErrors mode="Off">

    That should take care of turning off the redirection and show us the detailed error message.

    Check the page now. You get detailed error message. You have not set the correct values in the connection string for your database in the web.cofig. So any of the values - ServerName, database name , user name or password are incorrect. you should be having those values, if not you will have to reset them from your control panel or contact support to get the details.

    The images are not showing up, of any product there? Do you have any idea what could be the reason for it ?

    Thanks again for the help.

    cool. Just revert back the changes I have told about the Custom errors tag, and use the pervious settings. As a security issue, we should not show detailed error messages to users. It should only be used for debugging this.

    hmm, check the images path, may be you placed them at a different location. You should have a folder called £Media" in the root folder, and then a folder "products" inside it which will hold the images.
