Posted by Sinan Esen on 01 May 2015 02:45 PM

When trying to browse an .asp page on a domain, I get an error 500 Internal Server Error as follow:

 

 

It means that there is an error somewhere within your .asp script.

In this example, the script "test.asp" contains an error.

 

1. The easiest action is to navigate to your Control Panel > System > Website Hosting > Setup > Uncheck "Custom Errors" .


2. Disable `Show friendly HTTP error messages` in your browser.
In Internet Explorer: Tool > Internet Option > Advanced tab > uncheck "Show friendly HTTP error messages" > Click OK.
You will now be able to see helpful error reporting from your asp pages.

If you wish to keep your custom errors, then do the following:

1. Disable custom error document for 500 error.
You can do this from your Control Panel.
System > domains > domain name > Web directories > Error Documents tab > Find Error 500 > Click on it > Select type `Default`.

2. Disable `Show friendly HTTP error messages` in your browser.
In Internet Explorer: Tool > Internet Option > Advanced tab > uncheck "Show friendly HTTP error messages" > Click OK.
You will now be able to see helpful error reporting from your asp pages.
