Hi,

I have an asp classic that i'm migrating to a new dedicated webserver running iis7, i need to display the error, error line, etc for debugging but all i get is:


500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

I've tried creating a web.config file and putting it in the websites folder, and changing the settings in IIS under ASP > Compillation.

The web.config i've created in the websites folder is as below:

<configuration>
<system.webServer>
     <asp scriptErrorSentToBrowser="true"/>
     <httpErrors errorMode="Detailed"/>
 </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Open in new window


What am i doing wrong? I've read through a lot of forums and it appears this should do the job..

thanks,

Sam

In IIS, click on your site.  Then click on the ASP icon.  Under the Compilation area, there is a Debugging area that you need to open up.  Once there you have about 10 different options including  sending the error to the browser.
