Hi,

I have a site that uses classic ASP.  It was running and had a server crash, and had to restore it.  But the site throws an error now:

The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Very informative. :)  I do have failed request tracing turned on but don't really know what to look for.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I attached one of the most recent trace files.

Thanks!

It looks like you are having a data connection error.  First you want to turn on errors temporarily  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rakkimk/archive/2007/05/25/iis7-how-to-enable-the-detailed-error-messages-for-the-website-while-browsed-from-for-the-client-browsers.aspx   But you look through your xml and search for "Line number" you can see what which pages and line numbers are having problems.   I can tell your server works fine because trying to go to http://azfinewoodworkers.org/images/ gives a proper error about not having permissions. So the errors are in your asp and most likely your connection to  your database.
