Unclear Error Upgrading DNN 4.x to DNN 6.x

If you get an error when first traveling to the home page of your site and the install wizard takes you to an unhandled exception page, try manually navigating to the url below.

I believe this may have something to do with the web.config differences; specifically, I think the DNN 4.x web.config does not have an “autoupgrade” mode.
