Server Error in '/' Application....in Sharepoint

I'm having this problem when trying to open "companyweb" from any of the computers in the same subnet with the server hosting the sharepoint. Please help...
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>

It means that there is an error in the sharepoint application you tried to access. However, the server cannot display the error to you because its configured not to. The next step you should do now is to go to your web.config file in your web server (sharepoint), then search for the words 'customErrors'. You should see a similar config shown in the above code snippet you posted. Change the 'mode' to "off".

After you done this, retry the application from your client again. You should now be able to see more details on why there is an error.

Note: Or you can simply go to your web server and access the sharepoint web page from there. The current settings you have will allow you to view the error on the web server itself.

I went to the server and open internet explorer and put it "companyweb" and it showed this webpage but when I clicked to "My Company's Internal Web Site" link, it goes to this same page.  What is happening?

Try resetting your IIS by performing the following operation on the command line.
iisreset /noforce

[it goes to this same page.  What is happening?]
Mouse over the link you mentioned. Is it actually linking back to the same site?

* There may be several web.config for each site, so make sure u are changing the right one.

I'm sorry, i missed out one impt detail on the web.config.

In the same file, under the tag Sharepoint.

<Sharepoint>
  <SafeMode CallStack="false" ...> change to CallStack="true".

The last post only applies to Sharepoint. And if there ain't a CallStack attribute, please add it in.

This is caused by installing .Net 2.0 on your server and allowing it to configure itself on the current web sites.

Open IIS Manager > Web Sites > Companyweb > Properties

If there is an ASP .NET tab make sure that it's set to 1.1.4322 and not 2.0.xxxx

If it was set to 2.0, then change it back and make sure none of the other SBS sites are set for .NET 2.0.  Then, run the following at a command prompt:

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -r

In IIS Manager the "Companyweb(stopped)".  I tried to start it but the following error showed up.

IIS was unable to start the site. Another site may already be using the port you configured for this site.  Please select a unused port for this site.

Okay... I think this is related to your other question (http:Q_23005058.html).  So let's look at everything together here.

Please confirm that when you look at the Web Sites in IIS Manager they match what I've outlined here:

Jeff,

I've put everything according to your outline.  But the following error showed when I tried to get into the companyweb from the server.
Do you think I need to reset the IIS: iisreset /noforce ?

Whoah..... you need to do more than an IISReset...

You have apprarently attempted to UPGRADE your CompanyWeb to WSS 3.0... which cannot be done.  You've now hosed SharePoint.

Follow this guy's blog post to fix your server:

Jeff,

They told me that it was installed using side by side installation using the white paper described here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0daafc81-efff-4f5b-a28a-8265f1e99f5b&displaylang=en

The other problem that I'm having is that the rww and owa is not working

Oh sorry...and the other thing was that the companyweb was working just fine on the internal network although unaccessible from outside...Until recently???

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Nowhere in that paper does it say you can or should call your new site "companyweb".  In fact, you shouldn't.

Did you also happen to see that in Step 4.4.a it says, "do not use Port 80, Port 8080, or other used ports"?

firstly check from where it error comes , go to webconfig file and find customerror and change no to yes,

now open the webpage, and check which error is coming  it;s got error
now go to c drive or where the inetpub folder
in inetpub folder check your application directory, now open the browser applet folder and check whether the vt.cnf folder is hidden or not if its not then change its attribute to hidden and ok now open application webpage

i am sure its working.
