    Compare the NTFS security permissions for the folder on the old and new servers.

    Your image shows "HTTP ERROR 500", so check the http error logs in C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\HTTPERR for additional error information.

    Also check the IIS logs and the Application and System event logs for errors.

    There should be sub codes and an error description.

    Configure IIS to send detailed errors back to the browser.
