    We recently migrated our sitefinity project to a new web server and moved the database to a new SQL server. I updated the dataconfig file to point to the new SQL instance.  I can login to sitefinity but whenever I select a page it gives me a message from webpage popup that says "configuration error".

    That really tells me absolutely nothing about what is wrong.

    Any suggestions?

    Most likely you have corrupted / invalid webconfig or config files.
    I could suggest you to backup your webconfig / config files and replace them with configs from an empty project (or another clean installation) to isolate the source of your problem.

    After locating the file, check it for any duplicate entries or any invalid data that may causes this issue.
