A recurring error on Umbraco install – and a fix :-)

Recently I’ve been performing quite a few Umbraco Installs from clones off the cloud.

For some reason when I try the first run I’m getting an error – and my colleagues are too!


Could not load all types from "umbraco.DataLayer, Version=1.0.6582.14888, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" due to LoaderExceptions, skipping:

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.

To fix, we add the following snippet into web.config

<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity name="MySql.Data" publicKeyToken="c5687fc88969c44d" culture="neutral" />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-6.9.10.0" newVersion="6.9.10.0" />
</dependentAssembly>
