ASP.NET 3.5 + IIS7 - 500 (Internal Server) Error - Custom Error = Off !!

Avatar of feesu

Microsoft IIS Web Server.NET ProgrammingASP.NET
6 Comments1 Solution2897 ViewsLast Modified:
Hello,

I have uploaded my ASP.NET  3.5 website to goDaddy’s new server that uses IIS7, while my local development laptop does not have IIS, it just uses the virtual IIS provided at runtime by .NET.

I have managed to change the IIS compatibility on goDaddy’s CP to 3.5 but there is no option for the IIS version.

I am currently getting “500 (Internal Server) Error” on the first page, and I have modified the “Custom Errors” section to “Off” but I still don’t get the detailed error. It still shows “500 (Internal Server) Error”.

What do you recommend I do?

My web.config is attached.

Thanks,
