  • 6 Fixing common configuration problems (5)
    How to diagnose and repair incorrect system configuration settings. Modified:
    • 6 Error message: Server Error in '/' Application (2) Examine the detailed error message that appears on this web page. Here are explanations for a few common error messages.
      • Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'DynamicList.Default'.   Ensure that a Web.config file exists in your application directory, and that the settings in this file have been adjusted for your particular server installation.
      • Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.   Using the Internet Information Services console, create a new Virtual Directory under the Default Web Site. Suggestion: use dl or dynamiclist as the alias. Point the virtual directory to the directory containing your application files.
    • Error message: The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'C:\Inetpub\databases\dynamiclist.mdb'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.   First, ensure that you've specified the correct location of your MS Access database in the Web.config file.

      Second, ensure that the following file permissions are enabled for the Windows user IUSR_computername on the directory containing your dynamiclist.mdb database: read, write, modify.
    • Automated e-mail messages generated by the application are never received   Check the directory containing outgoing e-mail messages for your Default SMTP Virtual Server. By default, outgoing messages are stored in C:\Inetpub\mailroot\Queue\. If the outgoing mail directory contains files, then your SMTP server is unable to relay them. Check your SMTP configuration.

      Tip: A web page exists for generating test e-mail messages. It's located in the administration subdirectory, at administration/email_test.aspx.
