I have a web site that used to run on IIS 5. The web site used classic ASP. I have setup a new server with Windows 2008 and IIS7.
I moved the asp pages to the new server. When I try to access the URL from the IIS server, it works fine. When I try to access the web site from another computer I get the error:
500 - Internal server error
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it can not be displayed.
Any idea on how to solve this?

I looked in the IIS error log. Here is the error message
2010-06-09 20:13:09 126.96.36.199
|196|800a0035|File_not_found 80 - 188.8.131.52
+InfoPath.1;+.NET+CLR+3.0.4506.2152;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729) 500 0 0 0
I have no idea what this means..??
I have noticed few things however:
Everything works fine at the server. Meaning when I access the web pages at the server, there are no errors.
When I try it from a client, I get the "500 - internal server error"
Another thing I have noticed is that there are no problems when trying to access static content (html). Problem arrise when trying to access classic asp pages.
I am stuck, so I would appreciate your help..

OK. I did another experiment:
I renamed "iistart.html" to "isstart.asp". I got no error.
This means that my problem is trying to run dynamic code form client machines on the server. Static code is OK.

OK. So it looks like this forum is esentiallly dead. Can somone point me to a website that can provide support? Even if I have to pay.
I tried "experts exchange" before, but was not very happy with it. Any suggestions.
I will continue to google meanwhile!!

The error information indicates it encounter an error in the page energydatamain.asp line 196. As it is a file not found issue, please check the code to see if parent path was used. You can following the tips in the article below for further troubleshooting.
