  • The connectionString for umbracoDbDSN is empty
    <add connectionstring="" name="umbracoDbDSN" />
  • The appSettingsKey for umbracoConfigurationStatus is empty
    <add key="umbracoConfigurationStatus" value=""/>
  • The customErrors mode should be set to Off
    <customerrors mode="Off" />
  • Trust Level should be set to True. Add the following entry under <system.web> node
    <trust level="Full"/> 

Change permissions for the following folders for the user "Application pool group (IWPG_customer-name)". Make sure they have Full Control permissions.

  • Config
  • bin
  • media (if not available, create this folder)
  • web.config
  • Views
  • CSS

Create the following folders if not available

  • Partials (within the Views folder)
  • MacroPartials (within the Views folder)
Don't forget to change the custom errors mode back to On once you have set up your website and tested that everything is working fine.
