    Keep getting server errors after deleting content

    This is my first experience with Umbraco 8.

    I have installed Umbraco about 9 times and everytime and so far I really hate it :-)

    After copying the Umbraco files to the server I start to customize the website. First I try to remove content so that I can create my own. But... everytime I delete a content page I get a server error and the site just shows an errorpage telling me to change settings in the web.config.

    I can do that but I first have to understand why I can't delete content without crashing the site.

    Where do I find a good introduction to the concepts and explation of the process of creating a web site from scratch? (I have tried Umbraco's own documentation site but I don't think its any good)

    Welcome to the forums.

    Those errors do sound odd and I can understand that you're worried and frustrated.

    To get some help we'll need to see the error message you're getting. You're obviously doing something a little different and it would help if you can show your process.

    When you say "delete a content page" - I'm assuming you're using the starter site. You don't need that, you can just start with an empty site. But if you're getting warnings about changing your web.config then it's most likely that you have some kind of permission / setup error.

    Let's see the error and I'm sure someone can advise.
