    I get this error now anytime I try to connect to the forum.
    I tried looking through google to see if I kind figure out what the problem was.
    Google indicated it might be my webconfig
    Can anyone look at this and see if they can help me?
    Thank you.

    http 500 is a generic server error. It could mean lots of things. File / folder permissions is one possible cause. Folders are normally chmod 755, and files are normally 644. But it can be different depending on your server configuration. On some servers this error can be caused by an excess of permissions, such as 777 permissions.

    But more generally, to discover the cause of a 500 error you need to get with your host and find the log entry on the server for that error.
