Hi folks,
I am always trying new things as you guys probably know, and today, it was my turn to try again with mojo portal on Abyss Web server considering it is my dream one day to run my own site and all of that. But for now, I'm content with using the server for developmental and experimental purposes. And I love where the site is now, so that's not the issue here. But anyway, after doing some minor configuration changes to the web.config file in the setup directory of the application, I reset the paths in Abyss, and for some odd reason, when I type in the full address (localhost/setup:8080), I get the error as shown below:

Configuration Error

Server Error in '/asp.net' Application.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.  This error can be
caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Other information that may be of interest to you is the fact that firefox will not connect to the local web server when the full address is typed in. So, what I actually had to do to generate that error message is type in "localhost:8080" omitting the /setup portion. So, are these related? The fact that firefox wouldn't connect with the full path typed in, and then the error message I received when navigating to the wwwroot folder from the displayed index? And by the way, the only configuration changes I made in the web.config file were the ones belonging to my MySQL connection string. Any help/input on this would be great. If more information, such as the entire text of the web.config file or my Abyss.conf file is needed, please let me know, and I'll be glad to post them.
Update: I just checked the virtual path and the .net version, and I now have a very different thing going on. The fact that firefox can recognize, but can't connect to the server when the full address is typed in is still the same, but there is something else now that I managed to change the virtual path for it was a little messed up to my knowledge. Now when I click on wwroot from the index list, Firefox prompts to download the folder! It is supposed to run the setup script that the server is pointing to. any thoughts? anyone?
