Getting HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error

Dec 28, 2013 at 7:57 AM
I followed the instructions verbatim (there wasn't that many) and am getting:
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error
The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

Detailed Error Information:

Module
IIS Web Core

Notification
BeginRequest

Handler
Not yet determined

Error Code
0x80070021

Config Error
This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".

Config File
\?\C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PassCore\web.config



Requested URL
https://localhost:443/

Physical Path
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PassCore

Logon Method
Not yet determined

Logon User

Not yet determined

This is running on Windows Server 2012 R2 so it's IIS 8.5.
Any ideas?

Hmmm, looks like you forgot to install the IIS feature (Application Development)

Please take a look at this post and let me know if it solves your problem.
