Error 500 on LocalHost

Home » General Topics » Web Development » Error 500 on LocalHost

Having just updated windows 10, which I think updated the ASP.NET components to 4.8/or an update to 4.8, I suddenly started getting Http Error 500’s on every site on localhost, which is a problem for a web developer!

I went into Internet options and turned off Show friendly Http Error Messages, which then showed me it was a 500.19 error.

The answer was to go into Windows Features and ensure that Http Activation was turned on.

This post explained it for me, kind of.

I have been working as a software developer since 1983. This blog could have been called "From Fortran 77, C and Cobol to C# in 20 (not so) easy years", but it doesn't sound quite right somehow. Besides I'm talking about what's happened since 2003, not before!
