Website 500 Internal Error

Usually a 500 error on a DNN website is related to SQL Server database access. It normally means that the web.config file has an incorrect setting in the Connection String. In most cases we have found that either the database name or database password is incorrect.
A good practice when editing or changing the web.config file is to make a copy of the file before making changes so that if the changes don't work, then you can always revert back to the original web.config.
