HTTP Error 500.19 - After New Install


Recommended Posts

Some customers have experienced a HTTP Error 500.19 immediately after installing version 6 of Passwordstate, and this is generally caused by configuration settings in the web.config file being blocked by upper-level IIS configuration file. The detail of the error is:

Detailed Error Information
Module: CustomErrorModule
Config Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at the parent level......

Config Source:

<section name="httpErrors" overrideModeDefault="Deny" />

To fix this you need to:

  • Open the file C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost .config
  • Look for
<section name="httpErrors" overrideModeDefault="Deny" />
  • Change Deny to Allow
  • Save the file and restart the Passwordstate web site
