IIS6, ASP, 500 Internal Server Error

Hi All, hope someone out there can help me. I have been given a Website to host for a client that is ASP. I have created the website and copied in to a directory under Inetpub but receive error 500 Internal Server Error. I have tried with a default.hm and works fine. I have tried the options in Internet Explorer to stop showing friendly hits error msgs but no change. I get this error on the server and external. I have ASP Installed.

Help please.

I should also mention that I renamed the web.config and let the server create a new one.

for IIS6, you'll want to send the errors to the client, follow the steps in the tutorial to achieve that

Hi, sorry, It's IIS Version 7
Hi, thanks for the Info, that has worked but I am now getting the below :-

ADODB.Connection error '800a0e7a'

Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.

/inx/conn.asp, line 20

I presume this will have something to do with the code in the asp file ?
