    I am new to .NET. Would someone help me figure out  the following  error after I load my clubwebsite to third party host. I have changed the connection strings in web.config file. Also, I changed <customErrors mode="Off" defaultRedirect="ErrorPage.htm"/> mode on to off. Thanks a lot!

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Configuration Error

    Look at this

    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.

    You have to setup that folder as application (virtual directory)

    Thanks HTH, I have my site host by a host company, does that mean they have to setup a virtual directory for me each time I create a new application? Any useful information would be very much appreciated!

    You should see this in the control panel of the hosting, otherwise contact them to do that for you.

    btw, HTH = Hope that helps [:)]

    Every application must begin in an application root.  That means either adding to an existing application or creating a new application root, either on a subfolder or vidtual directory.
