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

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,

Hi,

First thing i would try is to load the custom error line first thing under <system.web>
Like this
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>

Does it show a more detailed error?

Try to isolate the error. Make sure your browser is set to disable "friendly errors" (if IE - maybe try FireFox and Chrome too).

Upload an html file and verify you can view it ok.

Upload a simple .aspx file that contains a simple expression like <%= DateTime.Now %> and that it displays without error.

A badly formatted web.config may cause the 500 error without displaying details. Perhaps the web.config does not match the framework (3.5).

Try using the standard IIS instead of IIS Express on your dev system to verify it runs ok in IIS 7.

Dear Patricksr1972,

I am now able to get a detailed error:
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" and "Arabic_CI_AS" in the like operation.

Dear Gary,

I was able to view the html page on the same server
I run my application locally with no issues so I don’t think there are compatibility issues between the web.config and the 3.5 version
How do I disable the IIS Express?

Disable IIS Express by getting to the project's property pages, go to the Web tab and choosing Local IIS instead of IIS Express. Then, if you use F5 or Ctrl/F5, it should start the web project up in the standard IIS.

There is no Web tab in there! See attached.

Plus, do you know anything about that runtime error I posted above?

I think it's because of SQL server error.
Have a look at it and following link may help you a bit.cannot resolve the collation conflict in the like operation

If this doesn't get resolved then you need to provide DB and Query information at where you are getting error.

Thank you .)
