Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

I am getting this error in every site running SharePoint, even central administration. I located C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS and changed web config file to Custom Errors= Off in each of the servers but the problem persists. I also checked the SQL if any of the databases were corrupted, but in fact they were running properly. All my application pools are started. I tried iisreset but, the outcome was the same. Here is the full error

  • Have you modified any thing masterpage? Do you have webparts?

    Try adding Custom Errors= Off in your web.config in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\<Port> Also

  • Check the Event Viewer on your CentralAdmin Server. Commented Jul 15, 2014 at 16:13
  • Ran into this today and it was because of insufficient SQL permissions. Check your SQL permissions and make sure teh farm account has access to the config and admincontent databases.
