    Corrupt Umbraco.config - Website Won't Start

    Our website won't start at all.  We are getting an error in Windows Event log that goes something like... The process was terminated due to stack overflow. As soon as the first request comes in.

    If I delete the umbraco.config file and use an old one everything works fine (obivosuly out of date).  If I republish all then the error comes back (new umbraco.config created).

    Does anyone have an idea how to track down the rouge issue in umbraco.config and find out which page/media item is affecting the issue?

    Our website is large > 20K pages and being down is causing some headaches.  HELP would be HUGELY appreciated.

    Is the config complete?   or is it partially published?

    Have you changed any XSLT files recently? I've experienced an issue a little like this when targeting a node incorrectly.

    Also what version of Umbraco are you using?

    It is complete. 

    Umbraco 4.7.1 (heavily customized) No changed to XSLT but we have quite a few content editors.

    I've also experienced this with characters in the XML thats have not been encoded properly. My first point of call would be checking for badly encoded characters.

    try: ’ “ ”

    I've added them to the umbracoSettings.config to remove them but I've also found long dashes (the ones from word) cause this in the past too.

    Any clues in the "umbracoLog" database table?

    Any 3rd-party packages (data-types) used? That might be corrupting the XML output.

    Yep and base64 chars. Base64 chars would make the umbraco.config file corrupt as they are invalid in XML
