ASP.Net WTF?! (sorry, blog was down)
All of a sudden, I get an email telling me that my blog is down. I go and check it out, and it is indeed down. With the following error message.
Server Error in '/Blog' Application.
Could not load file or assembly 'App_Web_g5ujsn49, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
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.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'App_Web_g5ujsn49, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
I tried restarting the appication by renaming web.config, but it didn't work. The only thing that worked was changing the compilation debug mode from false to true, and then to false again.
Search for the error brought this post, and it looks like there my be a hotfix avialable. The problem is that my scenario doesn't match the conditions on the hotfix, so I really don't know what to think. I am going to ping my host and check if there is anything that can cause file locks on the server (anti virus, indexing service, etc), although I would have expect this kind of error to occur much earlier if that was the case.
