Cannot add new web part to web part gallery

  Asked By: Josue    Date: Aug 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2827

I'm trying to add additional web parts to our web part gallery, By
Selecting Site Settings > Manage Security and Additional Settings
> Manage Web Part Gallery > New Web Part.

Now as far as i know, this should then display a list of all the web
parts available, however it simply gives the error:

"Cannot populate the Web Part Gallery. There are no Web Parts
registered in the <SafeControls> section of the ASP.NET
configuration file (web.config) for this site."

Has anyone else come accross this and does anyone have a solution?

Thanks in advance.

I´ve heard about registering the web  part at the command line, I
didn´t find the article I read about it, but maibe, it´s more easy to
you find with this information.

Please post the content of the web.config in the root directory of your Web
site.

Here’s the Web.config file  from C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wpresources.



To my knowledge, this has not been changed by anyone since SPS 2003 was installed.



<configuration>

<system.web>

<customErrors mode="On" />
