error 500 running WP on subdomain (4 posts)

    I want to run WP from subdomain.domain.com, get error 500.

    - My domain.com is hosted on 1and1. I created a subdomain, and that works fine (subdomain.domain.com redirects to domain.com/subdomain with no problem).
    - Copied WP files to domain.com/subdomain, run subdomain.domain.com/wp-admin/install.php and worked fine.
    - Changed in Options Blog address (URL): http://subdomain.domain.com
    - Changed permalinks to Date and name based
    - When I try to view the site, I get error 500
    - If I change back Blog address (URL) to http://domain.com/subdomain it works fine, however permalinks have the format
    http://domain.com/subdomain/2008/02/08/sample-post/ instead of

    Is it possible to have all permalinks with subdomain.domain.com base url?

    wordpress works fine with subdomains as clicking on my name will show.
    if it isn't, I would suggest your host has a problem.
