    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>

    Can you provide more information? What were you doing (trying to do) when you encountered this error? When did this occur? Can you reproduce it consistently?

    Thanks,

    Charles

    I think the website was yesterday (Saturday) a couple of hours offline. I just couldn't connect to the server.

    Perhaps the site needs a custom error handler, so the admins get email when a fault occurs. Unless there is one and it had a fault as well.

    We log all exceptions and do have have custom error management (this is why you see the "An error has occured in the Forums..." error message). Thing is, the application needs to be running... Apparently, there was an interruption in service yesterday. I'll see what our web hosting company has to say.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.


    Keep on posting,

    Charles
