Sharepoint services error sbs 2003

When users browse to the sharepoint website, they receive the error


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>


any ideas.  my coworker changed some share settings on folders for file sharing only.  event logs arent showing anything obvious.

This probably has nothing to do with what your co-worker did, but rather an update may have gotten installed on the server that screwed up your .Net config.

Although you cut off the top of what that page displayed, I suspect it was this:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

This is telling you that it will not display the error because you are accessing the site from a "remote" machine (remote meaning any machine other than the server itself).  

Please browse to http://companyweb from the server desktop itself, and you should get a different page showing the exact error.  You can post that back here if you need additional help.
