I am hosting a asp.net 5 application on azure, the code is complied for beta8, the application runs fine on the local environment and when i publish the code on the azure site. i get a common error "The specified CGI application encountered an error and the server terminated the process."
I was able to solve this issue by removing
forwardWindowsAuthToken from the web.config file under wwwroot.
Redeploy and mine worked fine.
