No styles on CMS login page


Hello everybody!

I'm new to EpiServer and I'm stuck with some minor problem.

I have started developing a site using EpiServer CMS5 R2. First I had to change the web.config 'cause I use IIS6 and the project was created in PC with IIS7. After solving all the errors I got, i managed to get to the CMS  login page and get authenticated, but the page had no styles at all. Then it redirected me to admin/setup.aspx and then i get this error

[Missing text #heading for en] 

[Missing text /admin/setup/redirectwarning for en][Missing text /admin/setup/utilsetupempty for en]


So, it looks like i definitely messed up something related to Epi configuration on the web.config, but I have no idea what it was.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

The missing text errors is because you are missing language files in the lang folder.

When you set up your site, did you use an existing EPiServer site? I would recommend using EPiServer deployment centre, set up an emptyEPiServer site (without database). THis will also give you a web.config file you can compare your self-converted version with :)  By using the deployment center, you will get all the correct settings in IIS etc. Just set the home directory property on the site to your site.

Actually the lang folder was the key to the language related issues.
Yes, I used EPiServer deployment centre to create a new EpiServer site, compare config files, etc. Still there was some config issues also on IIS for the site but after a lot of work and search, it's fixed.
Thanks for your help!
