Accidently overwrote EPiServer.config file...


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

Exception details:

HttpException: Not Found

Http status:

404 NotFound
Can anybody provide me with some insight into this? I've spent months working on the site and would have to have to rebuild

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
