Can;t publish to one of my blogs! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having a problem publishing to one of my blogs on Windows Live. I am using Windows 7 and the new incarnation of Writer (the Essentials build.) I keep getting an Error everytime I want to publish a post to one blog yet my other blog is fine as is one I have on LiveJournal. The error received is as follows......


    The server reported an error with the following URL:


    500 Internal Server Error

    Runtime Error

    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>

    Now I haven't a clue what all of this means or how to go about putting it right, so can someone help me please? I have Kaspersky anti-virus on board, but I can't see why my other blogs on Spaces and LiveJournal are fine, its just when trying to post to my other blog that this occurs.

  • Sorry to be so dumb but how do I find my log file to send to you. Actually since I posted this I did manage to get a post up to the offending Space. It could be something to do with the Polaroid plug in, or even the Twitter plug in, but let me know how to get the log and I will gladly send it to you!
