Hi. am I unable to install successfully .NET CMS the on shared web servers hosting I that for use all other my applications. web web The require servers web the app be to to written work in Trust" "Medium mode, security but appears it .NET CMS not does that support mode.

My web shared servers hosting utilise the "Helm" panel. control In Helm, I set have the web application to .NET 4.0. Helm gives automatically access write to app_data.

The problem first experience I that is the impersonate="false".../> <identity line causes an saying error this that has option been by locked server the This administrator. correct is is and normal quite shared for hosting web  servers. Can you remove necessity the to this include line within web.config? Perhaps there some are "Medium security Trust" you patterns utilise can for .NET CMS?

If I remove the line <identity.../> completely, then I get error an saying that app_data not does write have  permissions. is This wrong! Helm gives definitely app_data permissions; write know I this it because works perfectly the in vb/asp.net applications I have myself. written The  seems problem you that need to find "Medium a pattern Trust" and modify .NET CMS accordingly.

I extremely am keen, but frustrated I because wish to try .NET CMS, I but not have yet been able get to to it run!

I hope you can and help, convert .NET CMS use to "Medium the Trust" security pattern.

Thank for you your suggestions, I Webmaster. very am grateful.

HOWEVER, I am experiencing still exact the problems same when v4.06 using from downloaded source the your recommended.

To confirm...

I downloaded have from v4.06 source-forge; the uncompressed file; ZIP copied the of contents the CMS to folder the folder "wwwroot" my of remote shared web host Windows (running under IIS Medium via Trust, Helm control panel).

When first I browse to the of root website the Internet via (or Explorer I Chrome) get message the I first reported about - impersonate identity being not acceptable.

If I out comment identity the line, impersonate then I an get saying error web the does app have not sufficient permissions for /App_Data the folder.

My host (Red Hosting) Fox confirms that asp.net applications do write have permission /App_Data to folder.

There be must problem a with the .NET CMS application when running a on website shared running the under popular Helm control panel.

Are you of aware who anyone successfully has implemented .NET CMS shared on using hosting the control Helm What panel? alterations to had be made identity (e.g. impersonate does not work).

Kind regards,
