Im getting this strange error:

Server Error in '/' Application.


Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.


<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

How can I solve it?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this appears to be an IIS server side issue and so not Unix related – Stephen Harris Mar 26 at 13:52
  • @roaima - this MSE FAQ post says: "The system will automatically delete closed, unlocked questions with zero or negative score having no positively scored or accepted answers or pending reopen votes, that were closed for any reason other than duplicate nine or more days ago and haven't been edited in the past nine days. (RemoveAbandonedClosed)", which leads me to believe that this will stay around, even if it becomes closed. – Jeff Schaller Mar 26 at 14:39
  • @JeffSchaller thanks and no worries. Whatever works, really. – roaima Mar 26 at 14:42
  • It looks like you are trying, and having trouble setting, up a (or trying to connect to a miss-configured) web-server. But you have tagged with firefox (a web browser). – ctrl-alt-delor Mar 26 at 15:09

This is a web application error and cannot be resolved from within Firefox. You will need to contact the web application owner and ask them to investigate it further.

(If it helps, it's a typical application crash message from a C# application running under IIS.)
