SharePoint Error “An unexpected error has occurred”

Hi Folks,
Got bored and irritated when you are working sharepoint and when the page comesup and say “An unexpected error has occurred” error ?
Could not find the log files , traces or event logger?
I have managed to get rid of that error screen completely.

The solution is to change a single entry in web.config, by modifying the line

SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“false“
SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“true“

You will also need to set custom errors to ‘Off’ .

You will no longer see the “An unexpected error has occurred” error page and instead you get a lovely ’standard ASP.Net error page’ with the stack trace and everything…development has got that little bit easier!!

A better on will be a customizing the web.config file located C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\CONFIG and to modify the trust to trust=”Full” so that the web app is immediately ready to accept development DLLs in the ‘bin’ folder.
