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 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?

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.
