    Error 500

    Hi

    I have a dedicated server running windows 2008 Server and HTML/ Classic ASP coding

    Is there a way for me to see behind the error 500's that occur sometimes. I know I can set this up but not sure how best to do this on a windows 2008 server

    many thnaks

    Have you check your error logs? Anything stand out in the error logs that coincide with the 500 errors?

    I did check and I could not see a specific event,
    I think I need some code that reveals the 500 error itself if possible

    Internal Server errors can be caused from any number of things. That makes them especially hard to debug. The error logs are probably your best bet. Other than that, if you can think of anything that might have changed from when everything was OK to when it wasn't, that should help too. There may be some kind of server code that could help, but I can't think of any ATM

    If you're using IE as a browser turn off the 'show friendly http errors' setting. There is also a setting in IIS that can prevent display of the actual code error that often causes 500 errors, review your IIS configuration. I don't use W2008 so I'm not sure where to point you in the IIS manager.
