Mal formed web.config...Can't load home page

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Why is it that I can run my website in vs 2005 and bs 2008 but it won't work on this live hosting site? I'm told there is a invalid character right where my connection string begins.

This is madness. I have never had this issue before. I looked at my web.config in internet exploer. IE has an add on to validate xml.  It gives the error message:

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Anyone have some connection strings that work? I followed the example on Arvixe hosting website
but it doesn't work...

My master page won't load when using authorization in web.config

I don't have any sub catalogs for the .aspx files and this is my web.config file:<system.web> <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" /> <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" name="sqlAuthCookie" timeout="60" /> </authentication> <authorization> <deny users="?" /> <allow users="*" /> </authorization> </system.web> It's as if the Login.aspx won't grab the Site.Master if I add this authorization.I get directed to the Login.aspx if I try to enter any other page, but without seeing the master page.Is this enough info to solve this or do you need to know how the other pages looks like? Let me know!Thanks in advance.Niklas

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Viewing your In-Box from the Home Page


I have a user request to access the user's Outlook In-Box from the home page in SP 2010.  The OWS In Box web part requires a hard-coded email address.  Is there any way to have the web part accept a variable?  That way I could pass the email address from AD.

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.


Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?

page load timeouts and http 500 on MOSS2007


Hi All

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction re troubleshooting. We have a MOSS server farm - 3 WFE 1 APP 1 SQL cluster. All Server 2008 sp1 x64. We see occasional http timeouts (HttpException (0x80004005): Request timed out) with associated http 500 error. I have enabled failed request tracing and can see the following:

SiteId 754431215
AppPoolId SharePoint - intranet.*********.com80
ConnId 1610966466
RawConnId 0
RequestURL http://intranet.*********.com:80/Pages/default.aspx
RequestVerb GET

and then later in the trace:

ModuleName IsapiModule
Notification 128
HttpStatus 500
HttpReason Internal Server Error
HttpSubStatus 0
ErrorCode 0
ErrorCode The operation completed successfully. (0x0)

The problem happens on other pages too but the rest of the time the page is returned in less than 5 seconds. The server app logs and sharepoint ULS logs do not give any more detailed info. What I want to know is what other troubleshooting step can I take for http500 errors.
