I am getting "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error" in IE9 and the earlier versions of IE in one of the page of my application. In all other browsers and newer versions of IE, it's working fine.

If I uncheck "Show friendly HTTP error messages" from the advance option of IE then it's working.But it's not a solution. :)

Is there any way to fix this ?

Please advise.

Suvabrata, it's a small portal application. It's working fine for all the browsers, but getting HTTP 500 error in the IE9 and older versions of IE. I am also not able to get the real error message. Is there any way to find real error ? I am not sure which code block should I send. Do you have any idea ?

Go through it :HTTP 500 – Internal server error[^]

Or Install fiddler [^] and sniff request and response

@Suvabrata, thanks for providing this link... I saw this link earlier, but it's like to play with IIS settings. My portal is running live and feeling risky to do this kind of change. Looking for other solution. If I cant find any other then I will try this solution last. Do you know any way to get actual error message if any ? that will help me to investigate more on this.

I have same kind of error in IE but that was related to HttpStatusCode.
It may be a case of HTTPS or Resource access related.
Fiddler will help you to resolve the same.

This portal contains VB and C# both kind of files in separate directories.
Is it something which may cause this issue ?
Suvabrata Roy 16-Sep-14 7:40am    
No, VB and C# both will impact at server level ( I guess you put published version at Server ?)
Advay Pandya 16-Sep-14 7:45am    
Ya, it's a publish version at server. Actually that should not be issue because the system is working fine in all other browsers.
