internal server error after changing <img> in site.master

i've got running using sql server - works great, however, i recently changed an <img> in site.master and it then kicked out an internal server error (500).  No problem, i thought, i'll just restart the site - no go.  I've also resetiis - no go.  If I replace the original site.master, it works fine. 

Incidentally the new site.master with the new <img> tag works fine on my local machine, naturally.

Upon investigating this a bit further i found this error:

This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default    (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".

Again, no changes other than adding an <img> tag to site.master have been made, especially no config changes.

What gives??
