Before we upgraded using Sitefinity_3_7_2136_dev_NET40_patch, in SF we created a page called Default.aspx. We never had any pages marked as the homepage in the pages admin section. When the root was accessed like this:
it loaded this default page that we created in SF. This was all fine.
Then we applied to the patch to our site. So now when you access the URLs listed above, it says:
Thank you for visiting our web site. Please return soon for updates.
If I mark the default.aspx as the homepage, and access one of those URL's I get the following error:
Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration>\<system.web>\<httpModules> section in the application configuration.
But if I access the following http://localhost/projectname/default.aspx or http://www.projectname.com/default.aspx, everything works just fine.
Any idea as to why this maybe happening and how to resolve it ? Many thanks.
