Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm getting the following error when trying to run my asp.net website in a browser:

HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error
The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

Module IIS Web Core

Error Code 0x8007000d

Requested URL http://======:80/index.aspx

Why am I getting this error? Other sites on the same server are working fine. Thanks!

It seems to be indicating that the configuration file has problems; does the file exist? are its contents valid?

I thought this, I checked the web.config file. Everything seems fine.. :S –  Curt Nov 2 '10 at 15:55
    
I wonder if you've edited or even just opened the config file in a different editor; perhaps it's ANSI encoded, for example? (straws being grasped!) –  Andrew Barber Nov 2 '10 at 19:03
    
Looks like it might have been an issue with the web.config. I've replaced it with an entirely new one after many attempts at trying to locate the bug, and now the sites working fine. Thanks Andrew –  Curt Nov 3 '10 at 9:19

Since this is a bit strange, I will start with Failed Request Tracing. I will enable tracing for Status code: "200 - 999". I will see at what state will IIS Web Core fail. There has to be some issue with the config file which is giving this incomplete error.

You can check Troubleshooting HTTP 500.19 Errors in IIS 7 for more guidance.
