Fix the Annoying Event ID 5785

I found this in a blog a while ago but can’t find it now so here it is…
If you see this error in your event log the fix is fairly simple.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Office SharePoint Server
Event Category: Publishing Cache
Event ID: 5785
Date:  5/19/2008
Time:  6:19:13 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: <server>
Unable to connect publishing custom string handler for output caching.  IIS Instance Id is ‘461376054’, Url is ‘http://blahblah/page.aspx&#8217;.

The solution is to modify the web.config of the application. Remove the PublishingHttpModule module that was added by the root web.config:


   <remove name=”PublishingHttpModule” />

    Hello, I have found this error in my MOSS2007 server too. I could not public document about this in the MS pages. Is it a bug??

    I don’t think it’s technically a “bug”. Just an annoying Event message… 🙂
