I have a web server setup for asp.net website 4.5 framework.
Someone is wanting to run an asp classic web page on the site. It gets 500 internal server errors under certain circumstances. I'd like to be able to see the actual error message.

I put debug=true in the asp.net web.config which did not help.
so what do I need to setup on the server for this asp classic page to show an actual error message.
thank you.
