I'm using YAF Version and my hosting service is at www.seekdotnet.com. I just installed YAF as a separate application into a folder called /forum. However when I try to access the application, I consistently get "500 - Internal Server Error" messages. I installed the exact same software, as an application, onto another web site that I have at a different hosting service. And on that server, the YAF application works just fine.

The support people at seekdotnet tell me that the folder is setup correctly as an application, but they can't tell me why I'm getting the errors.

Is anyone else using seekdotnet for hosting and having this problem? I'm only considering seekdotnet because they allow the running of .exe files. And I have an application that needs to run .exe files on a web server. That part of my application works fine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This error means there is a problem on the server side. A Server Error  can be caused by any number of things from uploading the incorrect file to as bug in a piece of code. This error response is a generic "catch-all" response. The web server is telling you that something went wrong, but it's not sure exactly what that is. If you have root access, you should review your web server's error logs to get more information about this. If you are using shared hosting plan, you should contact your host to get more information. The best way to debug the error depends upon the server and what's actually running at the time. Consider some debugging tips to help diagnose and fix common causes of this problem.
