Hi,

I'm moving some of my companies old websites to a newly configured Windows Server 2003, most websites are fine but a few have errors, although they just say:

HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error

Open in new window


How can i get error messages to be displayed like:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

Expected end of statement
/Default.asp, line 2
session.lcid=2057 sdfds
------------------^

Open in new window


thanks.

Sam

I believe it is a option on the IIS6 setup of the website. Should be under Configuration => Debugging, something like "Send detailed ASP error messages to client"

Hi,

Thanks Carrzkiss, but the problem is with the server configuration, not a local browser issue

Thanks gman84, i have made this change and restarted iis but there's no change..

Did you do it at application level or port level? Might be worth trying it at application level, sadly I'm still on IIS5.1 so not sure what other options are required for IIS6

This solved the problem, for me it wasn't immediately fixed but after installing windows updates and restarting, the configuration started working correctly.
