  • Hello ,

    Currently I am trying to open a sharepoint default site portal 80 and  getting an Error : 

    500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR . In the IIS Manager SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool is automatically getting stopped and that is the cause . After I tried to start the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool and reset the IIS , still the site is giving me that same error and again it is getting stopped . My CentralAdmin 2013 portal is working fine .

  • Did you Reset your IIS after updating your credentials  in app pool? If yes, check that app pool is started in IIS and also check you Event log...

  • I performed these steps : 

    1) updated my credentials in the identity field 

    2) IIS reset 

    Then the 

    SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool was started .

    After that I checked weather the site is opening or not , It wasn't opening . Then I noticed that the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool was automatically stopped .

    Then I restarted my system and again performed the same steps but it was of no use !

  • Hi bijitm,

    Check the account running the application pool has “Log on as a batch job” right.

    Open Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignments > Add the user account running the application pool to Log on as batch policy.

    Best regards,
