Permissions for /elmah.axd

I've installed elmah with my app and now when I try to view the /elmah.axd page, I get Server Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

I think it's a good thing that access to that page is blocked, but is there a way I can set up some admin credentials in order to view it.

I'll admit that I'm new using elmah, so I apologize if this is a total newbie question.

    Hi Dennis, is Elmah working for you when you run the app on your local machine? If not, I recommend you get it going there first, before attempting to push it to AppHarbor.

    The wiki page "Securing Error Log Pages" has some informations about what you need to do to secure Elmah. The reason is likely that the allowRemoteAccess attribute is not defined in your configuration file.
