ElmahASP is a bit of code that'll capture classic ASP scripting and runtime errors and pass them to ELMAH so they're logged alongside your ASP.NET and MVC errors.
How It Works
This is a classic ASP script that uses the
One alternative would have been to wrap the ELMAH classes in a COM-visible .NET assembly, but that would mean registering ActiveX objects on web servers so I went with the lightweight web-hook approach.
This is Douglas Crockford's json2.js wrapped in a bit of JScript code so we can use it from classic ASP. Some quirk of scope with
<script runat="server"> blocks in classic ASP means that the
JSON.stringify 'static' method isn't visible even after referencing the script file, so we've wrapped it in a constructor.
A .NET IHttpHandler that deserializes the POSTed JSON object, creates a new
Elmah.Error object from the result, and passes this

IIS Custom Error Configuration
There's a quirk of IIS7 and above that means IIS will only pass full error details to the default custom error page, so you'll need to configure it under:
IIS > Sites > (your site) > IIS > Error Pages > Edit Feature Settings
You can then override specific HTTP errors (401, 404, etc.) using IIS' custom errors, but you won't be able to get any error details from Server.GetLastError() in your handlers for these errors.
You'll need to change the URL on line 78 to the fully-qualified, locally-resolvable web address of your server's
You can also edit the HTML as needed - this is the page that your customers will see when something goes wrong so keep it apologetic and as helpful as possible :)
