Web.config and classic ASP on Plesk
Posted on 2013-11-11
I trying to move my website to a new host. It is heavily scripted in ASP. ASP Error messages on this host do not display except for the general Internal Server Error 500 message. Digging through server error logs is way more cumbersome than error messages containing line number and error.
The support staff recommended the following web.config file:
<httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" />
This renders the server unable to execute ASP scripts with the Application Failed error in known functional scripts. I've tried reducing the file down to just:
but that doesn't change anything. Any thoughts?
Also, does Plesk really suck and nobody will admit it?
