Example of Configuration for <httpErrors>

I have a Web Application in Asp.Net 4 running locally on IIS 7.
I need display a Custom Page (404) and an 500 instead for the defaults page for IIS.
Using this httpErrors in Web.Config

<system.webServer>
<httpErrors>


My Site is in

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\


My Custom Error page in:

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\ErrorPages\404.htm
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\ErrorPages\505.htm


I do not understand how it works. COuld you please provide me a sample of code?

Thanks

Answer

I solved my problem with this.

<httpErrors errorMode="Custom">
    <remove statusCode="404" subStatusCode='-1' />
    <remove statusCode="500" subStatusCode='-1' />
    <error statusCode="404" path="/404.aspx" prefixLanguageFilePath="" responseMode="ExecuteURL"  />
    <error statusCode="500" path="/500.aspx" prefixLanguageFilePath="" responseMode="ExecuteURL" />
  </httpErrors>

This needs to go in Web.config, under <configuration> > <system.webServer>

e.g.

<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <httpErrors ...>
            // define errors in here ...
        </httpErrors>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>
