Sharepoint 2016 deploy fails: IIS 10.0 Detailed Error - 500.19 - Internal Server Error



I would appreciate it if anyone could help…

Following the instructions, trying to deploy causes this error:

PS C:\deploy> .\deploy http:\

From the error, what I think happened is that an invalid site collection url was used, so it received an unexpected response from the server. So it looks like the fba pack was installed, but just not activated at the specified site collection. If you login to the site collection as a site collection administrator, go to Site Settings -> Site Collection Features, and activate the Forms Based Authentication Management feature you should be good to go.


Thank you for the quick response. You’re right, pack was installed but I couldn’t assign it to the Site. It turned out to be a spelling error in the Security Token Service config file which was preventing the service to start and function correctly.

Thanks again!
