My guess is the web.config file.  When i first uploaded it to my server it told me about that error.

Might be something to do with <customErrors mode="Off"/>

And you might want to take a look @ this thread

They are kind of having the same issue, it's not solved yet but it might be before yours.

Do following :
 1. Set customErrors mode="On" or "RemoteOnly"
 2. If u get any access deny then  add the appropriate user to the Debugger Users group, follow these steps on the Web server:

To add the appropriate user to the Debugger Users group, follow these steps on the Web server: 1. From the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
2. In the left pane, click to expand the Computer Management, System Tools, and Local Users and Groups nodes.
3. Click Groups, and then double-click Debugger Users.
4. In the Debugger Users Properties dialog box, click Add.  
5. In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, select the appropriate user, and then click OK.
6. Click OK to exit the Debugger Users Properties dialog box.
7. Close the Computer Management explorer.

to enable debugging you should have:

<configuration>
  <system.web>
     <compilation debug="true">

in your web config.

the customErrors only controls what is displayed when you have a server side error.
