I've been pulling my hair out on this one.
(under windows 2000) I have my Default.asp file in my wwwroot\testasp\.Default.a
If I put an Default.html and open explorer and http:\\localhost
it the page is displayed, but when I do this with an .asp file I get a HTTP 500 - Internal server error.
I have tried:
Uninstalling re-installing IIS.
Uninstalling re-installing IE5.5 (worth a try).
Checked all properties for default web site making sure that 'execute' was a permission on the asp file.
someone suggested that my asp.dll could be corrupt so when I uninstalled IIS I deleted this from my system (even though it was in a $uninstalled directory)
IIS wont even execute the basic iisstart.asp file when I type my localhost into IE5.5.
Please help !!
