Background: I'm attempting to install DNN platform on a shared host; ie. no remote access, no IIS manager, just ftp and Hsphere control panel. The host is already running a .net site which includes YAF, so I'm putting dnn in a subfolder, which I've set up as a web app with a dedicated app pool.
I've extracted DNN_Platform_188.8.131.52_Install.zip to the dnn folder and prepared an empty database.
1st issue: InstallWizard.aspx won't load with the app pool in integrated mode, only in classic mode. But when installing, it then gives the error ERROR occured - AppPool in IIS must run under Integrated Mode
Changing the app pool to Integrated after loading InstallWizard.aspx doesn't work as Continue then does nothing.
So I edited dnn\web.config to remove modules EditBar, PersonaBar and RadUpload. InstallWizard then loads in Integrated mode. But InstallWizard then fails during Database Installation 31pc with ERROR:Value cannot be null. Parameter name: type.
I've also tried a lot more, but cannot get it to install and am about to give up!
It installed fine on my dev machine; would it work uploading that database and files, amending web.config as required?
PS. Why is this editor garbling my message?
PPS. Where's the InstallWizard source?
