In the Advanced Settings, I would uncheck these items to see if there's a difference (some you have maybe already unchecked):
- Enable HTTP compression
- Trim stylesheets
- Compress WebResource.axd
Another thing to check ... if your application pool for BE is set to run ASP.NET 4.0 (as opposed to ASP.NET 2.0) and you haven't already, you will want to update the <httpRuntime> tag in the web.config file as
Hi Ben: The AppPool is set to 4.0 integrated, and all three of those settings were still checked. I added
to the httpruntime tag in BE's web.config, logged in again, but when I unchecked "enable http compression" and tried to save settings, I got the "500" error again.
So, just for fun, I hit the "back" button, un-checked all three checkboxes, and when I hit "save settings" this time it worked! But why it worked seems very mysterious? I don't know if the first time I saved the compression setting was
disabled after the 500 error was returned...very weird.
Just tried a test post, and that's working as well, so it seems like it was one of those settings...probably "compress webresource.axd" that was the problem.
Thanks for pointing me to the correct settings!
