You can enable detailed error messages for your classic ASP site on Windows IIS by using a web.config file with the following code.

Note: This code is useful in diagnosing issues with a site, but for security reasons should be turned off when the site is in production.

<configuration>

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

For more information about the syntax and use of the <httpErrors> element, see the HTTP Errors article on www.iis.net.
