Help with Language Issue

    I setup a default language en-GB. All was working as expected. 

    So I disabled the en-US language and suddenly I am presented with a 404 error. I am unable to access the site again to revert my changes. 

    Is the a table entry I can edit to renable the language? I have checked the default tables but there is no field for enable or disble of the language.

      Hi Dan,
      first you should try restart IIS application pool for your website (saving web.config file unchanged will have same effect) and clear local browser cache for the domain) to make sure, your changes become effective.

      If this doesn't help you may re-enable "en-US" in table portallanguages (it's the record where culturecode is Null). Make sure there is a record in table PortalLocalization for your PortalID with CultureCode=Null as well.
      Clear Browser Cache and restart application again afterwards for database changes to become effective.

          I don't know what version of DNN you are using, but there should have been a record for en-GB in portal localization.
          I would try changing the one for en-US to en-GB (and restart the site etc)
