So I made a really small widget to render a page that I need. One small controller, partial view and page model. It works perfectly on my local dev machine.

When I went to deploy to the live site, the site restarted as expected. I log into admin because now I have to build the inner template on the live site. I copy a template, give it a name and go to Content tab.

When I drag any widget, not just my custom widget, over to the layout I get a 500 error in console. And the widget change doesn't save.

From what I can see, I'm getting the below error. Everything works completely fine on my local dev. But on the live site, I can't add any widget to any inner template. Everything else seems to work ok so far as I can tell. I edited a user, pulled up an order. All of that is fine.

Any suggestions?

I was able to resolve this issue but only by extreme measure. I zipped the entire public hosting folder into a zip file, deleted all site files and redeployed everything from the github repository. Then pasted back in the license file, encryption file, database config and web config files.

Fired up the app pool, hit the site and inner template editing now works flawlessly.

Bizarre. I really hate walking away from an issue without understanding why, but I have a feeling this one is above my pay grade. My only theory is that something got deployed to the live website from an incorrect folder or folder structure causing IIS to throw the error seen above. Clearly what's in the repo is working, so at least I know the repo is clean.
