Website Installation VPP Issue



I'm doing a website installation with database and I get this VPP configuration error:

Invalid Path. The path selected is the same or a child folder of the Internal-Dev website. It may not start with the site path.


My site path is D:\EPiServer\Sites\SydneyAnimalHospitals

My VPP Path is D:\EpiServer\VPP\SydneyAnimalHospitals


I don't see anything wrong with this one. Am I missing something? Normally I get cthat error when I put the VPP path inside the site folder. But this time around, I'm not. I''ve already installed previous websites with this path format and everything went well.

But when I don't change it to Drive D and just retain Drive the drive C on those path, it will work.

It works for me on CMS 6 R2. Can you try to change from "VPP" to "Sites" and then back again and see if it works then?

Thanks for the reply Tobias.

Same error occurrs when I swith the "VPP" to "Sites." I'm also using CMS 6 R2. It was working fine the other day.


So I'm jusing doing a work around right now deploying it to Drive C then just copying it to drive D and modifying the path configurations.

But it would be cool if someone knows a fix for this one. Re-installation would be my last option.

Still No luck. I installed Relate+ but the same behaviour also happens.
