can u dbl-check for web.config, it should be placed under the physical directory of the website (pointed from IIS).
Meir RivkinFull stack Software EngineerCommented:
does the config error say: "Config Error: Cannot read configuration file due to insufficient permissions" ???
Meir RivkinFull stack Software EngineerCommented:
if that the case, IIS_USERS cannot access the web.config and u need to add it in the securty tab of the config file:   1.  In Windows Explorer, locate the web.config file that is associated with the Web site.   2. Right-click the web.config file   3. Click Properties.   4. Click the Security tab, and then click Edit.   5. Click Add.   6. In the Enter the object names to select box, type computername\IIS_IUSRS, click Check Names, and then click OK.      Note Computername is a placeholder for the computer name.   7. Click to select the Read check box, and then click OK.   8. In the Web.config Properties dialog box, click OK.(http://sunnynagi.com/blog/iis-7-5-http-error-500-19-internal-server-error/)

Thanks sedgewick,

I've tried that, but it looks fine.

There's actually no folder/file called CMS TESTING\web.config when I checked C:\inetpub\wwwroot

sorry, problem not solved.

I meant, I went through your points 1-8 and all the settings have already been selected.
jeremyllAuthor Commented:
It's okay now. I've removed CMS TESTING folder in IIS.

I got lots to learn!
