Thank you for your post. The error 500 is a generic error thrown by IIS. IIS received the request; however, an internal error occurred during the processing of the request. The root cause of this error depends on which module handles the request and what was happening in the worker process when this error occurred.
One possibility is, IIS was not able to access the web.config file for the Web site or application. Please check the permissions.
The handlers might be causing the issue. Please remove the connector. Make sure you launch wsconfig with Run as Administrator while remove/adding connector. Check in the IIS manager for handlers, cgi restriction for connector dll entry (isapi_redirect.dll) and remove them manually if exist. Then only recreate the connector.
Also, please tune your application by applying the steps mentioned at http://blogs.coldfusion.com/post.cfm/tuning-coldfusion-10-iis-connecto r-configuration
Hope it helps.
Thank-you for the quick reply.
I hope this fixes the error.
I'm still getting the error. Maybe I am missing settings in the CF admin??
We went to this link
and did some changes. Now we have a different (more detailed) error.
I am working from that error detail now.
I had the plumber around today to fix a leaking sink. When I asked him what he had to do, he replied "change the connectors". I thought that was funny bearing in mind my earlier Error 500 problems. I didn't ask him if he knew ColdFusion...
This worked for me today. And yes CF10 handles errors differently than previous versions!!!
In the CF Administrator, go to the "Settings" section. You'll see "Settings" in the left menu near the top.
If there is a checkmark in the area labeled "Enable HTTP status codes", remove it. Go to the bottom of the page and click on "Submit Changes."
When I did this, my errors including line numbers appeared again.
Hope it works for you...
