Good afternoon, I need assistance in moving a DNN 5 website to a new server, but I can’t get the website to load. I get the following error: HTTP 400 Bad Request
I notice in SQL that the account listed in the web.config is talking to the database because I see the connection to DNNCore in the SQL activity monitor. It creates a new process each time I try to connect with Internet Explorer. I actually got part of my website logo to appear after I killed all of these processes on SQL. What should I try next? Here is what I have done:
I have installed the website to the same version of Windows (2003) and IIS 6.
I have installed the same version of SQL 2005 to the new server and mounted the database with the same name as the live website.
I have copied over the entire directory of web files from INETPUB, maintained the same directory structure, and set up everything I could find in inetmgr the same as the live website. .net 2.0 is selected
I verified the accounts listed in the web.config can access the database from SQL studio express, using the passwords in the file.
The website operates fine on the live server.
