Internal Server Error when opening webpage

    The install completed correctly but when I open up the webpage I am getting Http Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error. In the config error it reads "Configuration File is not well-formed XML". Looks like the issue is in the <connectionStrings> specifically line 8 where it adds the database name and passwords. I'm not going to post a screen shot for obvious reasons. But I've included the line with the password removed.

    <add name="clonedeploy" connectionString="Server=127.0.0.1;Database=clonedeploy;Uid=root;Pwd=PasswordHere;" providerName="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" />

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It is probably a special character problem with the password. I wasn't aware it was an issue until recently it was brought to my attention.

  3. Ah, I do have special characters in the password. Is there a way for me to change the password without uninstalling and reinstalling??

    Open up heidisql, login with your password, select tools, user manager, change password for each root user listed.

  5. Ok that worked. How Do I change the DBEncryption key?

    Thank you for the quick responses by the way.

    Just change it in the web.config. Since you haven't actually logged in yet, nothing would be affected by that key yet.

  7. I am in! Thank you!
