Error 500 Internal Server Error: what does it mean?
Your site on Windows hosting gives an "Error 500 - Internal Server Error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.".
What to do?
It's a generic error message, which gives you no detail about the cause of the issue, so you don't know what to do to fix it.
To display error details, you need to:
- edit web.config file
- insert following line of code:
<httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" />
just before </system.webServer> tag
- save the file
- refresh web page to see error details
