IIS 7 505 Error Message

Hi, It has been quite some time since I have done classic ASP work. I am used to getting a detailed line number and error message displayed in the browser. Now I see only general 505 error messages. I have briefly read some articles about how it is a new security feature of IIS 7....

Can someone please tell me how to get the error message to display or an easy way to debug. The website is hosted on GoDaddy and I don't have any access IIS or can't configure the web server in any way!

I know what you mean, I once tried everything and finally had to create a syntax error on the error 505 message page in order to see the actual error on my scripts. I still don't know what was preventing me from seeing the errors on that server.

The standard response is to turn off "friendly" error messages. If GoDaddy won't do that I don't think you'll be able. I suggest installing IIS locally and testing all your scripts before sending them up.
