My website is on a dedicated server and I FTP my files that I work on locally to test.. I accidently uploaded my local EPiServer.config file and am now having a lot of issues with the site..
First I couldn't get to the front or back end, I was getting a config error. I updated some values in EPiServer.config to match the application (SiteID, PageStartID, SiteURL, uiUrl)
I'm now able to access the front end of my website, although I'm getting a license error. I uploaded my license file since it was missing, and now I'm getting the following message: LicenseException: xxx is not a valid mac-address.
I'm also unable to get to the CMS entirely. The uiUrl is set to /dd/cms/edit/ and when I navigate there, I get an Incorrect Link
Ben, check your web.config, there you should find the "true" edit url. I guess the edit url for your local site differs.
It should be at the end of the file looking like this: <location path="u"> where u is the edit url. Use that one as your uiURL + /CMS/.
So mine is: uiURL="~/u/CMS/". You also need to verify that the VPPs have the correct UI virtual path (episerver.config).
I checked that, all paths matched up perfectly which is why I was so stumped
I decided to just restore from yesterday's image and then just had to update the db instance name since it reverted back to localhost
