How to specify correct path to App_Data folder of WebMail Pro ASP.NET

If you got the following error during WebMail Pro ASP.NET installation:

Not Found, can't find "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebMailPro\App_Data\" folder

This means App_Data subfolder is missing in your installation or WebMail Pro cannot locate it for some reason.

Note: In this article, we assume your WebMail Pro ASP.NET is deployed to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebMailPro\ folder, but if you've deployed it to another folder, you should take this into account when looking at the paths here.

What to do:

1. Make sure C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebMailPro\App_Data\ folder exists in your WebMail Pro ASP.NET installation and contains the following subfolders:

2. Run standard Windows Notepad, open C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebMailPro\web.config file for editing and locate the following key:

If you've renamed App_Data folder or moved to another location, please adjust its name and/or specify correct path. If you've not renamed/moved it, change the value to absolute path to App_Data folder of your WebMail Pro installation:

And save the file. Now, WebMail Pro ASP.NET should locate the App_Data folder fine.

Note: If you're installing WebMail Pro ASP.NET to a 'shared hosting', you should download the web.config file to your local workstation, change the path and upload the file back to your hosting. If you don't know the absolute path to your WebMail Pro ASP.NET installation, you should ask your hosting provider about it.
