Error: Server Web Request Adapter error after an upgrade

Error: The user receives an error with their Server Web Request Adapter in versions 9.x

Root Cause: Due to a defect in the product version 9.1.1, Save button on the Server Web Request Adapter will rename the assembly for the Adapter to "...". Since this assembly (...) does not exist, the site gives an error.


1. The user must have Administrator Rights.

2. Backup your database before proceeding.

3. Change the web server adapter setting from your database by executing the following query on your database:

UPDATE HostSettings  SET SettingValue = 'DotNetNuke.Entities.Host.ServerWebRequestAdapter,
DotNetNuke'  WHERE SettingName = 'WebServer_ServerRequestAdapter'

4. To load the new settings, Go to Persona Bar > Settings > Servers > Clear Cache.

Please note: For future reference, do not save the adapter settings under Persona Bar > Settings > Servers > Web Servers since it sends the assembly as an ellipsis "...".
