I am attempting to move an existing Better CMS site to a new server. The old server was 2012 (non-R2) and had SQL Server installed locally. The new environment running 2012 R2 has a separate IIS and SQL server.
Steps I have taken thus far:
Installed the following Roles & Features on new IIS server (Some are used by other apps): Application Server .NET Framework 4.5 *Web Server (IIS) Support Web Server (IIS) *Web Server Common HTTP Features *Default Document Directory Browsing HTTP Errors Static Content HTTP Redirection Health and Diagnostics *HTTP Logging Logging Tools Request Monitor Tracing *Performance *Static Content Compression Dynamic Content Compression *Security *Request Filtering Basic Authentication Client Certificate Mapping Authentication Digest Authentication IIS Client Certificate Mapping Authentication IP and Domain Restrictions URL Authorization Windows Authentication *Application Development *.NET Extensibility 3.5 .NET Extensibility 4.5 ASP.NET 3.5 ASP.NET 4.5 CGI ISAPI Extensions ISAPI Filters Management Tools *IIS Management Console **IIS Management Scripts and Tools
Set up new IIS Site - set application pool user as domain user who has rights to SQL database.
- Copied site to new server - modified web.config connection strings to point to new SQL Server.
- Installed URL Rewrite Module 2.0 on new server.
- Backed up and restored database to new server, set SQL user with full permissions to database.
When I access the site, it spins for a few seconds then stops with a blank screen with the favicon at top. The following is logged:
2016-05-25 09:24:38.2048 Unhandled exception occurred in Better CMS host application.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
