I'm serving some ASP pages on a Windows 2003 server and now the content is being moved to another server, same sysop and everything. The problem I'm getting is that all my ASP pages get a 500 internal server error and I can't figure out why!! ASP is running and enabled for my website, so it should run... but doens't...
Originally posted by buntine #500 erros just mean the script has a syntax error or that your server is running an old version of ASP..
I suggest you post your source code.
I used to get them due to web farm problems. For some reason that host rotated data around and it not only meant 500 errors, but It was also dropping sessions. This was on w2k servers though, and those are not well built for web farms.
Thanks for the feedback. The problem is my code is working just fine on the original Windows 2003 server, but not on the new one. Is there some obscure IIS setting I might have missed? Comparing settings both servers have the same configuration, but I didn't do exactly a point-by-point comparison.
check to make sure that IUSR_SERVERNAME has access rights to the database.
IIS default settings are correct for to have everything enabled for ASP to run therefore i would reset IIS back to default settings and try again.
Thirdly make sure that all the components you are using are also there on the new set up.
