ASP Page Not Running On IIS 6.0

    I have one legacy ASP page on my Web site, which has been returning an HTTP
    500 status code. I have debug turned on in IIS, but all I get is a blank
    page. I substituted an older backup of the page, but the same thing happens.

    Does anyone know of any upgrades in Windows Server 2003 recently, that would
    make ASP stop running?

    You will never figure out how to fix this without discovering the real error
    message. See:

  3. Hi Fred,

    I agree with Bob. The error logs will be very useful for the
    trouble-shooting.

    Besides, if we create a simple ASP website and deploy it on this IIS, does
    it have the same issue? This can eliminate the possibility that legacy ASP
    website is causing problem.

    I look forward to receiving your test results.

    I followed the advice to turn off "Enable server-side ASP script debugging".
    (I had both this and enable client side on.)

    Microsoft SQL Native Client error '80040e09'
    The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object 'spGetStateMap', database
    'HotelMotelNow', schema 'dbo'.

    We had recently transferred our database to a new server. Bob was right. I
    never would have found this without seeing the real error. Not sure why I
    couldn't see the error before turning off the server side debugging, though.

    Thanks for the help, guys.
