Trying to get Orchard installed on my production web server.  I am getting the error below when just trying to hit the site for the first time.

We have Url Rewrite in place for several websites and have never had an issue before.  Any ideas what is going on?


HTTP Error 500.52 - URL Rewrite Module Error.

The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Can't tell much from that error; do you have access to IIS? Can you pull out a FRT (Failed Request Tracing) dump of what's actually happening?

We found the issue here was because the same Orchard IIS application name was in the same IIS app pool.  Removing one of the Orchard IIS applications from the app pool and putting it in its own app pool resolved the issue.  Having two or more applications in the same app pool was not the issue but just that the Orchard ones were named the same.  Pretty strange issue and we were able to reproduce consistently but we did not try to pin it down to an IIS issue or an Orchard issue.  But I am pretty sure I have had same named IIS applications in a single App Pool without a problem so I am leaning toward it being an Orchard issue but just not sure.  In any case this is resolved for us.
