HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error - 'system.web/globalization' already defined


A fresh install of EPiServer 7 using Alloy demo on SQL 2008 Express R2 on a Windows 7 64 Bit OS using IIS 7.5, I receive this error.


Config Error Config section 'system.web/globalization' already defined. Sections must only appear once per config file. See the help topic <location> for exceptions

Config File \\?\C:\EPiServer\Sites\MyEPiServerSiteV7\web.config

340: <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" />
341: </system.web>


After a lot of investigation this turns out to be the relative path to UI as it was set "util" during the install.

The web.config will contain two entries for <location path="util">, ideally the first entries needs to be set as <location path="episerver"> to get it working.

Hope this helps anyone else and do not use "util" as the relative path to UI name
