    I've uploaded the community edition to my shared hosting account, however Helm doesn't have the ability to attach database files (app_data\sitefinity.mdf) to databases. This means, as far as I know, that I can't complete the installation.

    I'm not sure the security exception is related to this, but any ideas?

    Here is the full contents of the error:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Hi George Kinsman,

    You need to configure the website for Medium Trust support - take a look at this forum post, You also have to install the project locally and then migrate it using FTP to your production server( host). The error you are gettiing is thrown, because there are Security restrictions from your host that does not allow to run/ install Sitefinity directly or some features are not supported. The error is related to the host security policy for Medium Trust level.

    Kind regards,
