I am having difficulty setting up Sharepoint Foundation 2013 to use forms-based authentication with an external LDAP provider.
I have followed the instructions here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806890.aspx
After editing the central admin and SecurityToken web.config files, everything is still working fine and I can access both CA and the webapp's sign-in. As soon as I edit my webapp's web.config, the webapp site stops loading. I've made several tweaks to the web.config to try and troubleshoot, all to no avail - I either get a "Sorry..." message with no details, or:
Server Error in '/' Application.
