Hey Guys, for all those who might know this, what exactly is the code 500 error on the weblogs? i know it has something to do with the internal server error, and i know that everytime these go up, my orders go down? can someone please help?
It indicates that an unhandled error occurred while trying to process the page. Some servers will include a little more info in the log entry. Almost all servers will attempt to send more of an error message back to the browser. (If you are using IE, be sure to turn off the option for showing friendly error messages.)
Basically, these errors are specific to your site and to the page. You will need to troubleshoot the page(s) receiving the error.
thanks guys for the response! however, im seeing the internal server error on my webserver's logs everytime I analyze them through a inhouse software. i dont even know how to go upon handling it, because most of them say the following: 2004-03-30 00:54:58 X220.127.116.11 - 66.6.X28.51 80 GET /_vti_bin/owssvr.dllUL=1&ACT=4&BUILD=2614&STRMVER=4&CAPREQ=0 500 Mozilla/4.0 (compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+Windows+NT+5.1;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322)
2004-03-30 00:54:58 X18.104.22.168 - 66.6.X28.51 80 GET /_vti_bin/owssvr.dllUL=1&ACT=4&BUILD=2614&STRMVER=4&CAPREQ=0 500 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+Windows+NT+5.1;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322)
Can someone please tell me what this means?

ah - the last one you posted is a hit from a worm attempting to exploit a vulnerable server. Perhaps the others were also - I don't recognize the name of the DLL and had thought it was one you use on your website.
The fact that you are getting a 500 error may be bad or good - depends on the type of server you are on I think.
