IIS 6 to IIS 7 with Classic ASP Support
Posted on 2009-12-17
I am moving from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 with IIS 7. I have a few websites that I'm moving to the newer version of IIS. The sites are Classic ASP sites working with an MS Access database. So far, I've been able to create a site and view all of the pages. However, pages that query a database fail and generate an "Internal Server Error" with an error code of 500.
1) How do I configure the IIS 7 web server to show the actual error message versus the general 500 Internal Server error?
2) Is there any other configuration changes that need to be made to support ASP and MS Access on a SBS 2008 server with IIS 7?
As of now, I've ensured role services include ASP, Request Filtering, & ISAPI Extensions. Any other settings necessary to support this type of application in this environment?
