WAP error

Thanks to a kind gentleman on the WAP forums I got the module needed in powershell to edit the websites config. Here is how to fix it.

  1. From the controller open powershell as administrator the run the commands below.
  2. > Import-Module websitesdev
  3. > Set-WebSitesSiteConfig -name <sitename> -RequestTracingEnabled $false

Replace sitename with your site name in the portal. The site name can be found under your Cloud > Websites and the name column.

Here is the output from my CN (controller server).

PS C:\Windows\system32> Import-Module websitesdev
PS C:\Windows\system32> Set-WebSitesSiteConfig -name bake -RequestTracingEnabled $false
Configuration for website bake has been updated.
