I am attempting to install YAF on a remote shared hosting website. It is running .NET 2.0, but not exactly sure of the setup on the remote end.

My grasp of ASP and Microsoft technologies is slim, I inherited the company webpage from the previous IT admin, and it was all written in ASP. We want to add forums for our users to talk about the software we make.

I followed the instructions in the install files, but the error I get when I go to: http://www.companysite.com/softwareforums/install/  is:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>


Any suggestions on how to fix, or get a more descriptive error would be appreciated.
