I'm getting the error "The element 'httpCookies' has been locked in a higher level configuration" when i try to access an asp.net mvc 3 application. This happens when i add the line below inside my
<httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true" requireSSL="true" lockItem="true" />
This is happening on windows server 2003 (IIS 6). The error doesn't occur on windows 7 & Windows 2008 R2 (IIS 7 & above)
I have checked the machine.config file on both the windows 2003 server and my windows 7 development machine and it contains below line on both machines.
<section name="httpCookies" type="System.Web.Configuration.HttpCookiesSection, System.Web, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/>
