That's a generic error displayed by the web browsers.

If you are using Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Scroll down until you see "Show Friendly HTTP error messages" and uncheck that.

Click apply, close, and refresh your page.

You should see the real database error being thrown.

i have tried the way u told. but i am getting the same message.

i have tried giving full permission for the file and also for the database folder. previously the database was on the root folder. and now i have moved the database to a folder.

Web Server at virtualdatings.com

i hope the problem mighbe in this part

strConn = "provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0;data source=" & server.mappath("database.mdb")
Set ConStr = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
ConStr.Open strConn

from the above script i have change to the below script by addind db/ to the databasename

strConn = "provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0;data source=" & server.mappath("db/database.mdb")
Set ConStr = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
ConStr.Open strConn

The error is not at all related to the browser - it is produced by your web server, and as it says, an internal error has occured.

There are so many things that could cause this error, it is not possible to say what your problem is for sure, although (at least on apache) it is most commonly caused by incorrect entries in configuration files and/or .htaccess directives.

Did you check your logs as the error suggests?

yeah. i have checked the log file. it is around 500kb. it was very big log. where i didn't understand that. and i am using ms access database. and i have hosted on windows 2003 server. and there is no file by name .htmaccess etc. etc.

it is a matrimonial wesite. i get this error when i try to signup. as a new user. but the data what i type will be recorded in the database and when i try to refresh the page i get the message that username already choosen. so please try anothe one. while i try to signup the info is getting recorded in the database. and i can login. i can modify the details. and also i can request for the forgot password. everything is working fine. except problem while signingup as a new user.

for the domain virtualdatings.com

First of all, please do not post URLs here- it is expressly forbidden. I suggest you try to edit your posts to remove the URLs. Use "example.com or myseit.com" instead.

Second, with your postings, everyone in the world knows that your database file is currently located at yourdomain.com/db/database.mdb (making it much easier to hack). So I suggest you once again move it to a new folder.

Since the data is being written to the database, it looks like the error is occuring later in the code, after the data has been written. Maybe you're trying to do a different database call later? Maybe you're trying to refresh to a different page that is not accessible?

That sounds like your access log file, not your error log file.

Check your error log file as suggested by the first error message you received -- That will often save you a lot of time.
