ASP Calendars & IIS

P: n/a
Greetings all,

I wish to include an ASP calendar that connects to a back-end MS Access
database on a web page, to be run from my computer (running WinXP Pro, with
IIS5). I have downloaded a free calendar that fits the description from the
internet, and followed the install proceedures included in the
documentation, however when I enable the web site, and navigate to the
folder where the calendar is, instead of loading "default.asp" (the default
document for the folder) IIS returns an "HTTP 500, Internal Server" error.
I have been unable to find a way around this - does anyone have any ideas on
what Im doing wrong, or what I need to do to correct it?

Regards

Andi

Step one:

Why do I get a 500 Internal Server error for all ASP errors?

Come back with the results for step 2...

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Ive followed all the steps outlined in the page you linked to, and this is
what happened:

Instead of getting the 505 I now get a message which reads: "Server
Application Error
The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the
processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail
information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance."

An item is created in the Eventlog which reads:

Type: Warning
Date: 18/06/04
Time: 21:52:52
Source: W3SVC
Category: None
Event: 36

The data for the event reads: "The server failed to load application ''.
The error was 'The specified metadata was not found.
'.
For additional information specific to this message please visit the
Microsoft Online Support site located at:
http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp."

However, the link to the MS website from there revealed nothing of use as
there was no further information in the knowledge base.

Regards

Andi

Do you have a default application for your web root?

Also, from eventid.net:

Error: "The specified metadata was not found." - According to a
newsgroup post the matabase might be corrupted. Try enumerate your
metabase:
1. Open a command prompt and change to the C:\Inetpub\Adminscripts
folder.
2. At the command line, type "cscript adsutil.vbs enum" (without the
quotation marks). If this command is successful, it enumerates the
settings in the metabase. If the command is not successful, you
receive the -2146893792 (0x80090020) error code.

If you get error, try to restore from backup if you have one. If you
don't have metabase backup, try to follow the instructions in the
article Q234429.

From another newsgroup post the solution was to put the IUSR and IWAM
accounts in the local Administrators group first, and then run
Synciwam.vbs at the command line as follows:
D:\Inetpub\AdminScripts>cscript synciwam.vbs /v
