Cause

Incorrect web.config parameter for domain. IIS unable to parse/handle parameters defined.

Resolution

Since the issue was caused by customizing and changing configuration file web.config , there is no exact resolution.

The changes made have to be examined carefully and the parameters of the configuration have to be assigned with the correct values.

Note : Windows Application log usually contains the number of the line with incorrectly defined parameter. In this current example it is line 22:

Note that attribute names are case-sensitive. (C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\example.com\\httpdocs\\web.config line 22)

Attempt ot remove the line and access domain.
