I am trying to set up a local website using ASP and windows XP. I have enables IIS on windows XP and set my website there and everything works fine on a first look, but if I click for the same page twice I get a Server 500 Error. Shown Below:

[codebox]The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed.

Please try the following:

* Click the Refresh button, or try again later.
* Open the localhost home page, and then look for links to the information you want.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded the code to a website on the internet and it worked fine, but I need it to work on the Intranet as well. I only get this error on a page that accesses the Access Database. I think it has something to do with that, but it works some of the time. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks,

I figured out the problem. I had to go into the IIS Service, and change the properties of the settings to allow write and Directory Browsing. I think that Directory Browsing just needed the check mark, and so far everything is OK. If someone thinks that I need to do more, and just haven't come to the problem yet, let me know, thanks!
