Resolved- Application needed additional right in the web.config file to function on host, not full rights to folder
Just an update to this post. The permissions are set to allow full control to the IIS user group as requested and this server runs 10 other sites without issues.
configuration of the site and getting to come up was not a problem, it went to the login screen and no logins worked. I checked the forum and went to /controlroom/configure.aspx. I get the error listed below and I can go through to configure and connect to the database, when I try to finish it just errors. I tried the sysadmin and the couple of passwords, it just gives an application error. Please put me out of my misery
