Another Security Exception on GoDaddy after Login attempt
Host: GoDaddy Shared Hosting
Trust Level: Medium
The following happens after I submit a valid user/pass. The database has read/write permissions and when I remove the login requirement on an admin page that updates the database work as expected.
Has anyone else had this issue or know what the problem is? Anyone?

If you're using any third party components you might want to check to see if the components are performing some type of security action. A year or so ago I ran into an issue with GoDaddy and the SubSonic ORM, it had a problem with a particular line of code that was requesting a level of security. I cracked open the code in reflector, took a look , verified it.
This can be a problem. If the component is causing you the pain try downloading the code and removing the suspect code, recompiling and run with that. That is exactly what I had to do w/ the SubSonic code a year or two back.

Works for my en godady hosting
Have you tried playing around with the permissions of the files and folders in your site? I've had an error on godaddy where a new file couldn't be written because the directory had no write permission. You could try setting your whole root to read/write to see if that fixes your problem. To get to your permissions settings:
- Login to GoDaddy
- Click "My Hosting Account" and "Manage Account" next to your site name
- Click "My Files"
- Check the boxes next to files that are getting accessed then click the Permissions icon at the top
I am currently moving my website to GoDaddy and hit this error. I have a custom Membership Provider that uses hashed passwords based on the machinekey in the web.config. So it was this block of code that was causing the error:
// Get encryption and decryption key information from the configuration. Configuration cfg = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironment.ApplicationVirtualPath); machineKey = (MachineKeySection)cfg.GetSection("system.web/machineKey"); if (machineKey.ValidationKey.Contains("AutoGenerate")) if (PasswordFormat != MembershipPasswordFormat.Clear) throw new ProviderException("Hashed or Encrypted passwords are not supported with auto-generated keys.");
So the problem was trying to open the web.config using WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration, which I fixed by replacing the OpenWebConfiguration and GetSection lines with the following:
machineKey = (MachineKeySection)WebConfigurationManager.GetWebApplicationSection("system.web/machineKey");
