INTRODUCTION

When you try to access content on a server that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, 7.5, or 8.0 by using the HTTP protocol, IIS returns a numeric code that indicates the status of the response. The HTTP status code is recorded in the IIS log. Additionally, the HTTP status code may be displayed in the client browser.

The HTTP status code may indicate whether a request is successful or unsuccessful. The HTTP status code may also reveal the exact reason that a request is unsuccessful.

More information

Log file locations

By default, IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 put log files in the following folder:
inetpub\logs\Logfiles
This folder contains separate directories for each World Wide Web website. By default, the log files are created in the directories daily, and the log files are named by using the date. For example, a log file may be named as follows:
exYYMMDD.log

The HTTP status codes

This section describes the HTTP status codes that IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 use.

Note This article does not list every possible HTTP status code as dictated in the HTTP specification. This article includes only the HTTP status codes that IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 can send. For example, a custom Internet Server API (ISAPI) filter or a custom HTTP module can set its own HTTP status code. 

1xx - Informational

These HTTP status codes indicate a provisional response. The client computer receives one or more 1xx responses before the client computer receives a regular response.

IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 use the following informational HTTP status codes:
  • 100 - Continue.
  • 101 - Switching protocols.

2xx - Success

These HTTP status codes indicate that the server successfully accepted the request.

IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 use the following success HTTP status codes:
  • 200 - OK. The client request has succeeded.
  • 201 - Created.
  • 202 - Accepted.
  • 203 - Nonauthoritative information.
  • 204 - No content.
  • 205 - Reset content.
  • 206 - Partial content.

3xx - Redirection

These HTTP status codes indicate that the client browser must take more action to fulfill the request. For example, the client browser may have to request a different page on the server. Or, the client browser may have to repeat the request by using a proxy server.

IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 use the following redirection HTTP status codes:
  • 301 - Moved permanently.
  • 302 - Object moved.
  • 304 - Not modified.
  • 307 - Temporary redirect.

4xx - Client error

These HTTP status codes indicate that an error occurred and that the client browser appears to be at fault. For example, the client browser may have requested a page that does not exist. Or, the client browser may not have provided valid authentication information.

IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 use the following client error HTTP status codes:

CodeDescriptionNotes
200OKIIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 successfully processed the request.
304Not modified The client browser requests a document that is already in the cache, and the document has not been modified since the document was cached. The client browser uses the cached copy of the document instead of downloading the document from the server.
400Bad request The Http.sys file blocks IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, and IIS 8.0 from processing the request because of a problem in the request. Typically, this HTTP status code means that the request contains characters or sequences that are not valid or that the request contradicts the security settings in the Http.sys file.

942031 Error message when you visit a website that is hosted on IIS 7.0: "HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error"
500.11Application is shutting down on the web server. The request is not processed because the destination application pool is shutting down. Wait for the worker process to finish shutting down, and then try the request again. If this problem persists, the web application may be experiencing problems that prevent the web application from shutting down correctly.
500.12Application is busy restarting on the web server. The request is not processed because the destination application pool is restarting. This HTTP status code should disappear when you refresh the page. If this HTTP status code appears again after you refresh the page, the problem may be caused by antivirus software that is scanning the Global.asa file. If this problem persists, the web application may be experiencing problems that prevent the web application from restarting correctly.
500.13Web server is too busy. The request is not processed because the server is too busy to accept any new incoming requests. Typically, this HTTP status code means that the number of incoming concurrent requests exceeds the number that the IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, or IIS 8.0 web application can process. This problem may occur because the performance configuration settings are set too low, the hardware is insufficient, or a bottleneck occurs in the IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, or IIS 8.0 web application. A common troubleshooting method is to generate a memory dump file of the IIS 7.0, IIS 7.5, or IIS 8.0 processes when the error is occurring and then to debug the memory dump file.
500.15Direct requests for Global.asax are not allowed. A direct request for the Global.asa file or for the Global.asax file is made. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
942030 Error message when you visit a website that is hosted on IIS 7.0: "HTTP Error 500.15 - Direct request for global.asa are not allowed"
500.19Configuration data is invalid. This HTTP status code occurs because of a problem in the associated Applicationhost.config file or in the associated Web.config file. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
