web.config file problem on Server 2008 R2 - gives Error 500 - Size Issue? RRS feed

  • Question

  • On a hosted Web Server 2008 R2 I have modified the web.config to redirect from OldWebPage to NewWebPage. All is working well except when I increase the number of redirects in the web.config file - at a certain point I receive a Error 500 message. When  I reduce the numer of redirects in the web.config file the error goes away and the redirects that are in there work well.

    I have over 2000 redirects to do and so I don't want to do them individually via IIS. Also I cannot deal with the redirects in a formula as they are all unique pages.

    Is it to do with the size of the web.config file, or the number of redirects in the file, currently I have about 30 and all works ok, once  I add more then the error 500 appears.

    I have searched the web, asked my ISP but cannot find any way forward.

    The forums help would be appreciated.
