U4-8885 - Umbraco 7.3.1 as Parent and Umbraco 7.3.1 Virtual Application below

Created by Sen Gupta 22 Aug 2016, 16:13:02 Updated by Sen Gupta 22 Aug 2016, 16:13:47

Install and configure Umbraco 7.3.1 as www.myparent.com in IIS. Install another instance of Umbraco 7.3.1 as Virtual Application under www.myparent.com/myVirtualApp.

I used to hide some sections of parents being inherited to child like connectionstrings/dependent assemblies. Even tried running the virtual application in a different app pool.

Physically, my folder structure looks like this on file system: www.myparent.com => "D:\delete me\UmbNewInstances\Parent" and MyVirtualApp => "D:\delete me\UmbNewInstances\Child".

I get some config issues related to keys. I'm sure i need to turn off some sections of config to make it work. I have attached a screenshot below.

This is a show stopper for upgrade of at least 8 sites as we are setup as Virtual application with Umbraco Contour Forms which we need to replace with Umbraco Forms.

What frustrates me more that this has been working last few years with our current production setup with Umbraco 6.1.4 and we have failed to make it work with Umbraco 7.3.1.

Appreciate, any support on this.
