I was searching for a decent ASP.NET web host in Australia for an Australian based client. The solution I was developing for them was an Umbraco CMS based website. I found <a href=”http://www.studiocoast.com.au/web-hosting.aspx”>Studio Coast</a> had a good reputation and advised the client to sign with them. During testing, Studio Coast had great support and I [...]
A web hosting feature matrix I used while looking for a new cheap and reliable hosting server. Not shown in any particular order.

I tried to download an Intel x86 System Image, but I was getting the error File Not Found… sysimg_x86-16_r01.zip (Access is denied). Running the Android SDK program as Administrator on Windows seemed to resolve this problem.
I was getting Unauthorized Access and Access is denied in IIS Express or Development Web Server all of a sudden. Turns out it was because my source control made the directory read only and this seemed to be causing the problem. I also seemed to have to restart IIS for it to start working again.
I put a jqGrid on a page and the whole page was disabled. It turns out this was caused by missing the jquery.jqGrid/ui.jqgrid.css link.
If you get the error Could not load type from assembly ‘System.Web profile when doing something like a unit test and trying to make a profile, you probably need to add the assembly name to your class declaration.
eg, using System.Web.Providers and the new inherits feature to specify your Profile:
<profile defaultProvider=”DefaultProfileProvider” inherits=”RationaldDev.Models.Account.MyCustomProfile, RationaldDev.Models”>
If you get the error, “The installed version of ‘NuGet Package Manager’ is signed, but the update version has an invalid signature” after downloading a new version of NuGet, apparently the solution is to do the install inside Visual Studio via the, “Extension Manager” on the “Tools” menu.
I got “Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)” when trying to access a WebMatrix site from another machine on the network. One way around this was the change the URL in WebMatrix to the host machine name rather than localhost… but you have to run WebMatrix as administrator to have binding permission.
Also make sure your firewall port is open… but if you got “Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)” I imagine it already is.
A little rant due to frustration that I may add to if I remember:
- If you remove or comment out code someone else has added and they are still around, let them know what it is and why in case they needed it and they have to find out the hard way.
- If the build is broken, attempt to fix it. If you don’t know anything about it the problem, find someone who does.
