With reference to post by chris hammond on module development at http://www.dnnsoftware.com/Resources/Blogs/EntryId/2880/New-DotNetNuke-Module-Development-Templates-w-video.aspx
I have installed dnn under the folder dnndev. While creating a new site in IIS7, I gave my site the port number of 8090. So, I was able to access the dnn website through
Now, when I opened VS2008 and did exactly the same steps you mentioned. When I am trying to save the properties of the project after changing to 'Use Local IIS Web server'
I gave the Project URL as 'http://localhost:8090/DesktopModules/moduleExample' and override application root url to 'http://localhost:8090/'
When I am trying to save it I get an error that says
' the url localhost:8090/DesktopModules/moduleExample
is not configured in local IIS, would you like to create a virtual directory now? '
When I click 'yes' and reload my dnn home page it says
and has some details as
'An error has occured. DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.PageLoadException:Object Reference not set to an instance of an object - ? System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.............................................'
I am struggling with this thing since a week. I have re-installed DNN for almost 10 times. After reading reviews I thought DNN was one of the best thing to learn to develop websites. I have experience with php and html.
Now setting this is really the most difficult thing.
Please help me...
