I have a Sitefinity 5.4 site that sits as the parent for a number of child .Net apps.
As most of you know, child .Net apps nested under a parent .Net app inherit settings, like handlers, etc., from their parents. As a workaround to this, I have always just wrapped the Sitefinity system.web and other sections in a location tag, added inheritInChildApplications=false, and been done with it.
This works very well for the child applications. However, it's not working for Sitefinity anymore. Now I am plagued by errors such as
"'~/Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd' is missing in web.config" as Sitefinity's own self is trying to look for its handlers.
For the moment, my absolutely unacceptable workaround is that I have to open the web.config and comment out my location tag every time someone needs to log on to the Sitefinity backend. Seriously. So clearly, that's not going to work.
Anyone have any ideas for a better solution? I cannot be the only person out there with this setup.
In case you need this info, this is a completely clean 5.4 site (not upgraded from anything, because I just rebuilt the thing in the hopes that a clean site would magically be better.) The site has no custom code except for CSS, and the only widgets used are the generic content and image widgets.
I know there has to be a way to keep Sitefinity running properly but also keep it from mucking up my sub-apps. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me out.
