Well, apparently you can't run a 1.1 ASP.NET application under a ASP.NET 2.0 root. IIS Manager allows you to set the target framework at the application level, but the 1.1 application will still bubble up through the 2.0 web.config and fail to validate. So until I can get Community Server running under ASP.NET 2.0, I can't use my standard blog set up. The guys at WebHost4Life recommend setting it up as a subdomain and setting the version on the subdomain. This works because IIS thinks the folder is actually a root node and so it sticks with ASP.NET 1.1 and works fine. The only problem is I lose all my inbound links, feed subscriptions, etc which sucks. I'll probably be able to go back to the old links at some point, but for now you'll have to hit my blog using:
Please update your RSS aggregators and links accordingly. Here is the new direct URL to the RSS feed
Oh and I can't do a redirect with an Http 301 Response because if I could get that working, I wouldn't have this issue in the first place.
