DNN website hosting has been popular amongst developers & end users as it provides ease to manage your website at few clicks.

You will receive such error on latest DNN versions you install on the domain. Modifying web.config under httpdocs folder will apply a fix to it.

Find for “system.webserver” & add below line just below it.
