Configuring IIS to Run 32-bit Applications on 64-bit Windows (IIS 6.0)


Conditions:
Operating system : 64 bit
Web Application : 32 bit
Probable errors : Could not load assembly

When running any application on IIS and the dll cannot be loaded,
it could be that the application is a pure 32 bit application and the operating system is 64bit

You would need to enable 32 bit applications in IIS

Following is the process explained:

Yetanother forums setup


Yetanotherforums being a pretty good forum made in Asp .Net can get pretty nasty when installing it, especially with iis 7.0
I found a site which describerd a few things on what to do especially with me getting all sorts of security exception, and then after going through that i had issues with sql server.
I still don’t know how well it will cope up but it seems to be working.
a few things is required in the web.config file (rename default.config to web.config if this is a fresh installation) and change the yafnet section to look like this

you may also require the following in the system.web section if you get a lot of configurationExceptions

After finally getting through the initial setup screens i started getting sqlClient exceptions.
Something to do with the column name never existed. It was something to do with the database being case sensitive. So i ran the scripts manually and it runs beautifully now.
I will be making the forums live after a few weeks and a lot of testing and setting up the site as it is required to.
I am also in a hunt for themes for this forums, but i assume this will have to be made to fit.
