MOSS 2007 Installation Error - Server Error in '/' Application - Runtime Error

Hello,

I did a search and counldn't find if anyone had posted this before. I have a new server 2950. I've installed SQL Server 2005, Symantec Veritas and now installing MOSS 2007. When the installation completes I get:

Server Error in '/' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 
I tried the Microsoft Knoledge base with no success.

Thanks for your help.

You need to navigate to this folder and give the Network Service account write access through the security tab.

That did it!

Thanks for the speedy reply and for the solution!

Microsoft Knowledge base had me editing the web.config file etc etc etc...That threw me off completely.

Thanks again.
