Re: Installing DNN (formerly DotNetNuke) on GoDaddy Hosting

Hi @SamHobbs


Good question. I tried to install DNN 8 manually but wasn't able to make it work. It's possible that it has dependencies that just aren't available on our Plesk Shared Hosting accounts. I kept getting the following error:

Could not load file or assembly 'DotNetOpenAuth.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=2780ccd10d57b246' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)


It definitely wouldn't work on our Web & Classic Web Hosting, which is what the support documents you linked to are for. However, the version that is offered within the control panel itself as an app installer should work for you.


Anyone else in the community have experience with this? Maybe the error I posted will help someone understand what's missing.
