Hi,

I am trying to deploy a website (developed in Sitefinity 3.7 sp2) to IIS7 in my local system.
But first, it takes too much time to send any response back.
And the Response returned is:


String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
 
Exception Details: System.FormatException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
 
Source Error:
 
An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.

Hi Ashish,

Thank you for using our services.

Can you please check the following things?

1) Check web.config for the default values setting for the news date related metafields:

<add key="News.Publication_Date" valueType="DateTime" visible="True" searchable="True" sortable="True" defaultValue="#Now"/>
<add key="News.Expiration_Date" valueType="DateTime" visible="True" searchable="True" sortable="True" defaultValue="#Max"/>
2) Do you have any globalization settings for your website to a certain culture? This will affect the formatting of DataTime.

3) Have you made changes to the following template - ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Search/ControlPanelMain.ascx and especially the line shown below:
<li><asp:Literal ID="Literal3" runat="server" Text="<%$ Resources:LastIndexingDate %>"></asp:Literal>: <strong><sfWeb:DateTimeLit

Can these solutions posted 'elsewhere' be linked to these threads? Makes little sense to have multiple threads now that I've found that has my problem but solutions posted 'else where'.

I've looked at the above and I believe all that is ok. Though I can not confirm if solution idea 3 is the same dateformatstring.

My DateFormatString="dd MMM yyyy, hh:mm" ...

Hey all, I've figured this out also (atleast narrowed down the issue)...

But I'd like to suggest to all just go to /sitefinity, find your page and start removing components. Likely you will see what control is throwing this error because the exceptions are kept in the scope of the control. Time for some debugging.
