IIS6 Migration to IIS8, cannot browse .ASP pages

IIS6 Migration to IIS8, cannot browse .ASP pages


Firstly, I want to say that I am VERY limited in my exposure to IIS and ASP!

I have managed to migrate an IIS6 website to an IIS8 set-up on a 2012 server (This took a very long time!). My default page is working perfectly and I can browse to it from within IIS manager with no issue, however, when I try to browse to other pages I am greeted with an HTTP 500 Internal Server Error and I cannot work out why! The website is configured using version 2 classic.

The code for one of the offending ASP files is as below so hopefully someone will no the answer!!

<html >


Dim oConn
Dim ConnectionString
Dim lngJobNo
Dim pDate

ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\\cts-srv01\apps\db\db.mdb"
lngJobNo = Request.QueryString ("JobNo")

Set oConn = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Connection")
oConn.ConnectionString = ConnectionString

Dim oRS
Set oRS = server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")

oRS.Open "SELECT * FROM [qryJobEmail] WHERE JobNo=" & lngJobNo ,oConn ,1,3

Dim strJobType

If oRS.RecordCount = 0 Then
Response.Write "No Job Found"
Set oRS = Nothing
Set oConn = Nothing
End If


<head >


If oRS("Eng_Service") Then
strJobType = "Service"
End If

If oRS("Eng_Breakdown") Then
strJobType = "Breakdown"
End If

If oRS("Eng_Commission") Then
strJobType = "Commission"
End If

If oRS("Eng_Other") Then
strJobType = "Other"
End If


<title >Job No: <%=oRS("JobNo") %></title>
