Yahoo crawler returns error message '500 internal error' for c# si

P: n/a
Hello there
I wrote a web site in c# and I'm using forms authentication for some of the
pages in the root folder. The site is fully accessible from the web no
problem, but when I request crawler Yahoo to index the site, it returns a
'500 server internal error', and then Yahoo can't not index this web site at
Have anyone there experinced that already? I spoke to the ISP and they know
nothing about it. I spent hours searching the web for an answer! Can I
mention the web site here (to prove to you that it is accessible)?
My web.config file looks like this:

<customErrors defaultRedirect="PageNotFound.aspx" mode="RemoteOnly"/>

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="FourHolidayRentalsAuth" path="/" loginUrl="Login.aspx"
protection="All" timeout="120"></forms>



<!-- set secure paths -->
<location path="AdvertisersArea.aspx">
<deny users="?" />

And then I list all the protected pages. I don't list the non-protected
pages though. Should I? Should I remove the 'debug=true' clause since now it
should be in production?
Please help me!

Hi Rodrigo-Dublin,

This is a "classic" ASP group. The ASP.NET groups have "aspnet" in their
names, i.e. microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.
