I am trying to copy a website to a hosting provider in this case
To keep it simple i just created a new website with VS2010 and kept the default without changes.
On my local system it works fine but when i try to copy this to the host i get the following error:
Description: HTTP 500. Error processing request.
at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Drawing.GDIPlus:GdiplusStartup (ulong&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupInput&,System.Drawing.GdiplusStartupOutput&)
at System.Drawing.GDIPlus..cctor () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
Version information: Mono Runtime Version: 2.6.7 (tarball Sat Jul 14 01:56:47 CEST 2012); ASP.NET Version:
Can someone help me what the problem is in this case and how i can solve it.
Or maybe there are some good tutorials on this or other website on how to do this succesfully but i could not find it yet, so if you know one that would be great.

it looks like you did not properly publish your website to the server. The server is unable to locate the DLL called gdiplus.dll and this is why you receive this error
Please kindly follow the steps below:
1. Please open your project in VS 2010 tool
2. On the Solutions Explorer windows, right click your project and select "Publish"
3. Please publish your project to your local folder first, e.g. C:\MyProject. You will notice that all the code-behind files (.cs or .aspx) have disappeared on C:\MyProject
4. Next, please upload whatever files and folders that you see on C:\MyProject to the server. Your website should work directly or otherwise, the issue will be on the hosting server. If this does happen, you have to contact your host provider to solve it.
Please mark this response as an "answer" if it helps you. Thanks heaps!

It seems like your gdiplus.dll is requiring another dll/s which have dependecies on that DLL. Please make sure you've included all the relavant dll files.
