Any help would be appreciated, but please remember this code works just

Set compilation debug="true" to enable ASPX debugging.
Otherwise, setting this value to
false will improve runtime performance of this application.
Set compilation debug="true" to insert debugging symbols
(.pdb information)
into the compiled page. Because this creates a larger file
that executes
more slowly, you should set this value to true only when
debugging and to
false at all other times. For more information, refer to the
documentation about
debugging ASP .NET files.
<compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="true" />
Set customError mode values to control the display of
error messages to users instead of error details (including a
stack trace):

"On" Always display custom (friendly) messages
"Off" Always display detailed ASP.NET error information.
"RemoteOnly" Display custom (friendly) messages only to users
not running
on the local Web server. This setting is recommended for
security purposes, so
that you do not display application detail information to
remote clients.
<customErrors mode="Off" />
This section sets the authentication policies of the
application. Possible modes are "Windows", "Forms",
"Passport" and "None"
<authentication mode="None" />
Application-level tracing enables trace log output for every
page within an application.
Set trace enabled="true" to enable application trace logging.
If pageOutput="true", the
trace information will be displayed at the bottom of each
page. Otherwise, you can view the
application trace log by browsing the "trace.axd" page from
your web application
<trace enabled="false" requestLimit="10" pageOutput="false"
traceMode="SortByTime" localOnly="true" />
By default ASP .NET uses cookies to identify which requests
belong to a particular session.
If cookies are not available, a session can be tracked by
adding a session identifier to the URL.
To disable cookies, set sessionState cookieless="true".
<sessionState mode="InProc"
stateConnectionString="tcpip=" sqlConnectionString="data
source=;user id=sa;password=" cookieless="false" timeout="20"
This section sets the globalization settings of the

Okay, Solved!!!

Uninstalling the front page server extension did the trick.
