500 Server Error ASP.NET Web Form (After Uploading)

Hello Everyone,


I've updated a website that consists of an ASP.Net web form and I've started getting 500 server errors. The tech support team tells me that this is "content related" and they cannot help. I don't understand what the problem is at all. I previously had some issues with getting the website started that were fixed by setting the default document to Default.aspx.

It's gotten to the point where I will have to stop using GoDaddy altogether, since ASP.NET hosting is quick and easy elsewhere.

You must first disable Custom Error Documents, and then add the detailed error coding to the pages for which you want them to display.

To Disable Custom Error Documents

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. Click Plesk Admin.
  5. In the section of the domain name you want to use, click Show More.
  6. Click Hosting Settings.
  7. Deselect Custom error documents, and then click OK.

Now, use the sample code in your web.config file to display detailed error messages on IIS 8:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
		<httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" existingResponse="PassThrough"/>
