Hi all,

I'm sorry if this is a newbie question or it's posted elsewhere but I'm having real problems getting DasBlog up and running, and the problem seems to be web.config.

If I upload web.config then the site returns "

500 - Internal server error."

However if I remove web.config I can see the site, but not log in or make any permanent changes.  I've tried uploading a completely untouched web.config, which does returns the same 500 Internal Server Error.  I've also tried changing the two parts which are suggested for ASP.NET 2, but exactly the same problem.

Sorry, I'm completely new to websites, blogging and hosting....so I'm really stuck without asking for help.

Any suggestions are more than appreciated!

Thanks,
