Help moving database asp from online testing server to another

Help moving database asp from online testing server to another


I have an access database and associates DataAssist asp pages which worked fine on the testing server. This site has now been moved to it's permanent location. Now any pages that connect to the database generate an error message -
"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator"

Is there anything that I could change re connections etc
Do I have to create a new dsn with the new web hosting service?
Any help would be much appreciated?

You most likely do need to create a DSN or use a DSN-less connection. The error message is very non descriptive, so that may or may not be the problem.
