Configure the display mode of custom error pages

You can configure custom error pages for your Sitefinity CMS website in a similar fashion to any other ASP.NET WebApplication, usign the standard ASP.NET mechanisms, for example the customErrors element. You can configure the following scenarios:

  • If you set custom errors to Off, a detailed status page is displayed to all users.
  • If you set custom errors to RemoteOnly, a detailed page is displayed to users that are requesting the page from the host server and a general status page is displayed to all users that request the site from other machines.
  • If you set custom errors to On, a general page is displayed to all users.

To configure the custom errors mode, perform the following:

  1. Open your web.config file
  2. Inside the <system.web> section, change the <customErrors> tag in one of the following ways:
    • <customErrors mode="Off" />
    • <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" />
    • <customErrors mode="On" />
  3. Save and close the web.config.
