    Umbraco web app hanging on startup

    I've been working on my first Umbraco site. It's been going well and I'm almost ready to wrap it up.

    I've published the web app to IIS and it works fine there.

    However, all of the sudden the app no longer runs when I hit F5 in Visual Studio and I can't figure out why. I am trying to figure out where it's hanging, but can't.

    How can I debug this?

    I have restarted SQL Server, killed IIS Express and hit F5 again. This is the same code that is working in IIS. I've compared the source code in GitHub to my code and it matches so I know the code hasn't changed.

    Where can I look to figure this out?

    What's being logged to the app_data\logs\ - see if there are any clues what's hanging there?

    Have you changed the project url - is it trying to connect to the IIS version of your site. Check it's not actually connecting to your IIS instance.

    You're a genius. That's exactly what happened. I updated the url to remove the https so I didn't get the security warning all the time and that screwed me up.
