HTTP 500 Internal Server Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I create a new web application in SharePoint 2010 (Central Admin), using "Claim Based Authentication", I keep getting this HTTP 500 error. I have tried all the things I have read from various posts but none seem to resolve my issue. However, I did notice that when I create the web application using "Classic Mode Authentication", everything seems to work just fine. 

    Is there a reason why this is the case? Has anyone seen this issue in the past, and if so...could you please share the knowledge on what the cause is and what can be done to fix it?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Is this HTTP/HTTPS?  I have seen this happen when you create a HTTPS site but accidentally do not change the port.  Check IIS bindings if this is the case.

  • Hello

    Are you getting the 500 internal server error creating the web application or it gets created and then you receive this error browsing to it?  What type of authentication provider are you selecting when creating claims aware?

  • Check the Application Event Log on the server.  Generally 500 errors are logged there with more detail.
