    I installed Sitefinity 3.7 trial on sharedhosting environment.
    I successfuly attached the database.
    Created application and can see admin login screen.

    I entered userid and password and getting error.
    Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

    Please suggest what i am missing.

    Hi Pankaj,

    You are not using the correct database. It is possible that during the attachment your database has been renamed. Please check the SQL server instance and all available databases there and use the correct  one.

    Kind regards,
