    I am getting an error: "The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid."

    In more detail, the config error is: "This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false"."

    Also inside my visual studio, I get the error: "It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition = "MachineToApplication" beyond application level. This error can be used by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS."

    We are running Windows Server 2008 hosted at

    Please help! Thankss!
