Use this tab to set debugging options for Active Server Pages (ASP) that run in the currently selected application.
You can set two types of debugging flags that enable server-side and client-side script debugging. You can use the Microsoft® Script Debugger to troubleshoot ASP scripts while those scripts are being processed. Enabling ASP server-side debugging forces ASP to run in single-threaded mode. For performance reasons, ASP server-side or client-side debugging is not recommended in a production environment.
You can control when and what error messages are sent to the browser when an error is encountered in your ASP scripts. You can configure Internet Information Services (IIS) to send detailed error messages that contain specific debugging information (including the file name, error message, and line number) to the browser so that you can easily analyze the output. You can also configure IIS to send a default error message to the browser when any error prevents the Web server from processing the ASP page. A specific error message is written to the error log. Additionally, you can change the default error message by typing a message in the text box.
