I have a blogengine.net website hosted on godaddy and I'm having issues when viewing it with Firefox and Chrome. On Firefox I get this error :

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown 
because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

On Google Chrome however, I only get a white page like if there was nothing that would load.

I'm wondering if it's the server (GoDaddy hosting), the website or both together that is causing this problem. When I run it directly from VS2010 I don't get any errors.

What could cause that and how could I solve it.

Thanks

While using BlogEngine.net you may run into “content encoding error” “The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression” this error, to resolve this, find

<add name=”CompressionModule” type=”BlogEngine.Core.Web.HttpModules.CompressionModule, BlogEngine.Core”/>

in your web.config file and comment this line of code. This error mostly arrives when you host blogengine.net site on GoDaddy.

There are multiple occurence of this line. Make sure to comment both of them. –  ALOToverflow Jun 15 '11 at 22:50
