500 - internal server error

500 - internal server error , someone asked me to explain?

I am getting 500-internal server error when I uploaded the published copy to the GoDaddy and there is no detail about the error. Even though I add Custom Error mode=”On” in the web.Config setting.

500-internal server error means that there is a problem with displaying website. But the details are not available. Instead of that it shows “500-internal server error”.


After adding the following code in the web.Config next, I got detail about the errors.

       <httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" existingResponse="PassThrough"/>
     </system.webServer>  </configuration>
