The behavior you have observed usually occurs when the Lightning server module cannot be correctly installed in Sitefinity's modules. The reason for that would probably be differences in the version of Sitefinity and the one that the module is built against.
You have mentioned that you put the module assembly in the bin
folder of your site. This leads me to the conclusion that you have downloaded the zip file containing the module - available from here
If so, you should have seen that there is a pdf
documentation file which explains what should be done when binding redirect is needed. After you read this, there are two options for you:
- Make sure you have copied not only the Lightning server module but also the reference assemblies provided with the zip file in the bin folder of your Sitefinity project. Edit your web.config file as described in the pdf document. Try to refresh the Modules page in Sitefinity.
- Delete the module entry from the SystemConfig.config file and all the assemblies you have put in the bin folder. Make sure your site is running just like it used to be before the module installation.
Open your Sitefinity project using Visual Studio and use the NuGet Package Manager to install the module to the site (package available here). This way, you will not need to do any additional configurations manually.
Both ways, at the end, you should be able to successfully install Lightning as a module in Sitefinity
