The configuration section 'entityFramework' cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration

.net asp.net c# entity-framework

Question

I've been working on this project for quite a while. But now it just crashed after I added Identity. The error is as according:

The configuration section 'entityFramework' cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration

It's some IIS error I think, because that's what the page is saying.

My web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Accepted Answer

You are missing a section as the error says:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
<configuration> 
<configSections> 
<!-- For more information on Entity Framework configuration, visit http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=237468 --> 
<section name="entityFramework" 
   type="System.Data.Entity.Internal.ConfigFile.EntityFrameworkSection, EntityFramework, Version=4.3.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" /> 
</configSections> 
 </configuration>
