ASP.NET (C#) Question

The specified CGI application encountered an error and the server terminated the process

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."

Answer

I was able to solve this issue by removing forwardWindowsAuthToken from the web.config file under wwwroot.

  1. Navigate to src/ProjectName/wwwroot
  2. Open the web.config
  3. In the httpPlatformremove the forwardWindowsAuthToken="true/false" property

Redeploy and mine worked fine.
