Custom error and call stack info is not showing on my SP dev machine

Problem: I have turned my web.config file customErrors mode to "Off" however the error is telling me to turn it off or RemoteOnly. Therefore my screen is not showing me the problem. You can debug but the feedback is not provided on the erring SP page.
Hypothesis: Changing the web.config in the IIS SharePoint 2010 web site does not take effect. Ensure the web.config is correct and ensure other related web.configs used by the site are updated.
Resolution: Update the following 3 web.configs:

  • 14\CONFIG
  • 14\TEMPALTE\LAYOUTS
  • Current IIS web.config
web.configs should read:
customErrors mode="Off" />
SafeMode MaxControls="200" CallStack="true" ... AllowPage LevelTrace="true">
compilation batch="false" debug="true" >

Try changing the SharePoint site web.config (should be in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80)
