Hi

We've starting having a problem with our companyweb intranet site in SBS2003.

when we try and open it we get the following.

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.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on the local server machine, 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 "RemoteOnly". To enable the details to be viewable on remote machines, please set "mode" to "Off".


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

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly"/>
    </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="On" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
 
Many thanks for your help

More information is needed to diagnose. On the file system go to the home directory path.
Open web.confiig with notepad.
Locate
<customErrors mode="On" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

From above, replace mode="On" with mode="Off"

Refresh the page (may need to restart IIS)
A more detailed error message should now appear.

In IIS, in the web site properties of CompanyWeb, set the ASP version to use .NET 2.0 instead of 1.1 (under the ASP.NET tab)
Also verify the application pool is not serving an application that is a ASP 1.1 version
