HTTP 500 Internal Server Error on http://localhost

5 New Member

I would like some help with regards to setting up IIS on my machine, it seems I'm doing something wrong. I installed IIS on a new Windows XP machine with intentions of copying all my ASP projects from the old machine. after installing IIS and opening http://localhost i get this error: "(HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying." I also get the same error when i move my projects onto the new machine
I have played around with the IIS mmc (changing Directory Security and Home Directory settings) and Folder Permissions settings on the wwwroot folder but I've had no luck.

I would appreciate all help and suggestions. If this has been covered, please accept my apology and please point me to the solution.

What version of IIS? 500 is too non-specific, we need more info. Thanks.

Thanks for the response, and sorry about the delay.

I'm using IIS Version: 5.1.
I added IWAM_MachineNam e Account onto the Administrator Group, this seems to work but after a few minutes I get this error :

error '8002801c'
Error accessing the OLE registry.

/iisHelp/common/500-100.asp, line 154.

Could be worth running the iis reg tool:
ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool

But it may be that you try running regsvr32 as an admin. HTH.

I have a Asp.net web application and a Asp.net Web service application.
