aspx uploading to server (Netbenefit)

Hi there,

Trying to upload a web site to the server from Visual Studio 2005, using the
temple when creating a new web site.

It uploads ok with no errors. However when viewing through the web browser
not in Visual Studio I get the following error: -

Server Error in '/' Application
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom
error settings for this application prevent the details of the application
error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however,
be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

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>


I have switched the <customErrors mode="Off"/> to off and still get the same
error.

What am I doing wrong

Regards

Most probable causes:

1. The version of ASP.NET on the server is not the same version on your
local box. you can check this in IIS.

2. You are missing a required assembly.

NOTE: IF this is deployed to an ISP, they sometimes have things set so
you cannot get a lot of error detail. This is to avoid hacking on their
machines, but makes it a pain in the rear for us. Deploying recently to
webhost4life, I found that my connection string was wrong and throwing
an error that was not even properly caught by my try ... catch. So it
may be something as simple as ensuring your configuration is pointing to
the right server.

Peace and Grace,
