Is there something special you usually have to do? I have a DailyRazor .Net Starter account, but it won't run my MVC app. Any ideas?

I have contacted support but they said it should work, but it's not... Thought maybe someone here could help me faster.


What error do you get?

Well I was getting something like Resource not Found or something like that, though now I'm getting this: "CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Linq' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)"... but that should definitely be in the GAC

I've been through this with Gearhost.

Your host needs to install the following on your IIS server:

They need to enable the following settings:

If it's running IIS 6 on Windows 2003:

  • Enable Wildcard Mappings: (1), (2)

If it's running IIS 7 on Windows 2008, then you don't need to do anything.


Regarding your Linq error; that means they probably don't have the correct version of the .NET Framework installed. I'd open a ticket and ask them. If they seem unwilling to help or to upgrade your server, there are plenty of hosts that will, and I can make recommendations if you'd like.
