so...meanwhile it works....but only on the local server. when i start the site on a client, i get the error:
An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons).
It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.
