    Hi

    Just installed wordpress 3.0.1 on windows 2008 server running php 5.3.3 fastcgi on iis 7 with a local mysql 5.1 db. I can login to the wp-admin area and alter posts etc, but get a 500 error when I browse to the front index.php. There is nothing interesting in eventlog or the iis log and I dont get much from the 500 page in IE other than check permissions, event logs, dll permissions etc. Any ideas?

    I managed to resolve myself, but thought it best to post here for others…

    When it refers to an include, the code was

    require_once(‘./whatever.php’)

    which IIS didn’t like. I have altered all scripts to

    require_once(‘whatever.php’)

    managed to get more info from the php errors log in c:\windows\temp folder. I think the log file is called php_errors.log.
