I installed WordPress, but when trying to display admin.php I get "HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error". My problem is that I have so little knowledge of the processes involved that I do not know where to begin looking or testing; so I hope someone here would be willing to give me some clues.
My system: Windows XP, IIS Express 7, Visual Studio 2010 Express.
I installed Brandoo wordpress (for mssql), using Microsoft Web Platform installer. On the face of it, everything went fine: it created a 'wordpress' folder under wwwroot and localhost.config was automatically adapted; it now contains a 'wordpress' website (on port 1310), which does indeed start up. It also installed a second instance of SQLExpress 2008 (I already ran a default instance), with a database wordpress958. (This database contains no tables, but I have no idea whether it is supposed to.)
More details about the error: Module: FastCgiModule; Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler; Handler: PHP_via_FastCGI; Error Code: 0x800700c1
I very much hope someone can provide some clues about where to start looking.
