Hi guys, does anybody have any experience with Azure at all? I finally deployed a test site I built http://web-dev.azurewebsites.net/About.aspx and unfortunately there seems to be a problem when you submit the form (obviously I tested the form many times before deploying the site and it was definitely working in my localhost as I've received all the emails generated): you'll get an error message:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. 

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Now, being really new to Azure, I have no idea what can cause the problem, and I'm not sure how to implement the change the error is talking about. If I look at my config file - which incidentally is called Web.config (with a capital W) - it contains the following info:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!--
  For more information on how to configure your ASP.NET application, please visit
  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=169433

<configuration>

    <system.web>
      <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.5" />
      <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5" />
    </system.web>

</configuration>

If I ought to follow the error directive, where should I put that custom error tag, inside a new configuration tag or inside what's currently there? Presumably that addition will allow me to understand what error that is, as the error message is saying (or have I misunderstood?)
So in other words should the file look like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!--
  For more information on how to configure your ASP.NET application, please visit
  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=169433
  -->

<configuration>

    <system.web>
      <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.5" />
      <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5" />
    </system.web>

</configuration>
<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Or like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!--
  For more information on how to configure your ASP.NET application, please visit
  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=169433
  -->

<configuration>

    <system.web>
      <compilation debug="false" targetFramework="4.5" />
      <httpRuntime targetFramework="4.5" />
      <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>

</configuration>

Here is the aspx.cs file that handles the form (as I mentioned before, this works absolutely fine in my localhost, that's why I'm really really frustrated!!), just in case somebody wants to see it!

{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ThankYouPanel.Visible = false;//hide thank you message
        if(Master is Site) 
            (Master as Site).ActiveClass("AboutLink");


    }
        protected void submitData(object sender, EventArgs e) {
            //send email
            string Subject = "Web development contact form submission";
            string nameField = name.Value;
            string titleField = title.Value;
            string emailField = email.Text;
            string enquiryField = enquiry.Value;
            string Body = "Name: " + nameField + "<br/>" + "Title: " + titleField + "<br/>" + "Email: "+ emailField + "<br/>" + "Your enquiry: " + enquiryField;
            string ToEmail = "bassabasso@gmail.com";
            string SMTPUser = "bassabasso@gmail.com", SMTPPassword = "xxxxxx";
            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();

            //smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
            smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
            smtp.EnableSsl = true;
            MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
            mail.To.Add(ToEmail);
            mail.From = new MailAddress(SMTPUser);
            mail.Subject = Subject;
            mail.Body = Body;
            mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
            //if you are using your smtp server, then change your host like "smtp.yourdomain.com"
            smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
            //change your port for your host
            smtp.Port = 25; //or you can also use port# 587
            smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(SMTPUser, SMTPPassword);
            //smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
            smtp.Send(mail);
            //hide form and show thank you message with no panel
            //contactForm.Attributes.Add("class", contactForm.Attributes["class"] + " hidden");
            //thankYouMsg.Attributes.Add("class", thankYouMsg.Attributes["class"] + " active");
            //hide form and show thank you msg with panel controller
            ContactFormPanel.Visible = false;
            ThankYouPanel.Visible = true;
        }
}

And here is the aspx file:

Modify your web.config in the way like your second example so you can see what the error actually is that's causing this problem.

OK, apparently it was a security issue as I got this email:

Hi bassa,

Someone recently used your password to try to sign in to your Google Account bassabasso@gmail.com. This person was using an application such as an email client or mobile device.

We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

    Tuesday, December 9, 2014 9:58:20 AM UTC
IP Address: xxxxxxxxx
Location: Unknown


If you do not recognize this sign-in attempt, someone else might be trying to access your account. You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately.

Reset password

If this was you, and you are having trouble accessing your account, complete the troubleshooting steps listed at http://xxxxxx 

Sincerely,
The Google Accounts team    

I followed the instructions and unlock the captcha, so now it works, but I hope it works from any device. You couldn't do me a favour and try to submit the form please? Just fill it with rubbish data, that'll be very helpful, thanks :-)!

Yes, it's going to work from any device if you configured your gmail account to accept mail from the client, which in this case is the web server.

I submitted a test and it looked like it was successful.

OK I see, so should be fine now then!Yes, email received, thank you very much for submitting it, much appreciated!
