Server Error in '/' Application.

Hi,

When I publish my website onto my webserver (Windows server 2008, IIS 7) I get this error message.
It works fine on my developing machine and I also can access some of my backend pages, but when I try to acces that start page of the site and some other pages on the front end this message is shown.

What does the message mean and what should I be looking for to solve it?

Peter

I assume you are using URL rewriting. Check your references to external files like images, css, and javascript files. I read somewhere that url rewriting doesn't handle those links very well. I'll see if I can find the actual info again.
