    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.
