Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server. Server-side error occurred on sending debug HTTP request.

Why do I receive the following from:

<appSettings>
<add key="ConnectionString" value="server=SEVERNAME;database=databaseName;uid=sa;pwd=tester" />
</appSettings>

SYMPTOMS
When you debug an ASP.NET application in Visual Studio .NET, you may receive the following error message:
Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server. Server-side error occurred on sending debug HTTP request.
Make sure the server is operating correctly. Verify there are no syntax errors in web.config by doing a Debug.Start without debugging. You may also want to refer to the ASP.NET and ATL Server debugging topic in the online documentation. Would you like to disable future attempts to debug ASP.NET pages for this project?
CAUSE
This problem can occur if there are syntax errors in the ASP.NET application's Web.config file.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, make sure that all of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) in the Web.config file is valid and well formed. Also, remember that everything in Web.config is case-sensitive.

Well I believe if you search and try to fix your own bugs it will get fixed:

Web.Config
<appSettings>
<add key="ConnectionString" value="server=SEVERNAME;database=databaseName;uid=sa;pwd=tester" />
</appSettings>
The following value has to be inside of the <configuration></configuration> not the <system.web></system.web>
