    Getting a 500 Internal Server Error

    Well guess the code i supplied for my last post messed some things up, so I'll try again.

    I have installed uLess, but I'm getting a 500 Internal Server Error on the .less file requests.

    The response is just some weird encoded code (I can't paste it in here as the forum will get messed up).

    I tried adding a Mime-Type, but no luck.

    Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7.5, App pool runs in .Net 4.0 Integrated.

    Under the covers uLess is really just installing the dotLess HttpHandler found here It has been a while since I looked at the code, but I believe that all it is doing is adding a line like this to your web.config

     <addtype="dotless.Core.LessCssHttpHandler,dotless.Core" validate="false" path="*.LESS" verb="*" />

    Let me know if your web.config is missing that line.

    Hi Justin

    Everything looks fine in web.config

    Under system.web > httpHandlers

    <add path="*.less" verb="GET" type="dotless.Core.LessCssHttpHandler, dotless.Core" />

    Under system.webServer > handlers

    <remove name="DotLessCss" />
    <add name="DotLessCss" path="*.less" verb="GET" type="dotless.Core.LessCssHttpHandler, dotless.Core" preCondition="integratedMode" />

    dotless.Core.dll present in bin folder

    Well i just downloaded the latest version of dotless from GitHub, and uploaded it to the solution, and now it works fine.

    Maybe there's something in the one in your package that is not compatible with the latest version of Umbraco?

    Or it might just be some weird bug I had.
