    Hi there,

    I am having trouble installing the release candidate of word press 3.0 on iis. I have tire installing on localhost and I have tried on a hosted server. The specs of the servers:

    IIS 7.5 Windows 7

    Hosted server:
    Shared hosting
    IIS 7

    I have had word press installed on both servers and have word press mu installed on the hosted server. For some reason when i upload the word press files to the hosted server or move them into a sub directory of wwwroot on my localhost I get a 500 error. No idea why?

    Any suggestions.
    Best regards

    I was receiving a similar error - I changed the parent directory (above the directory WordPress is installed in) by adding the local IUSR account and giving it read access. For example, if your site is in:


    Add the IUSR account to c:\websites\mysite and give it read access.

    I was experiencing a "white screen" on IIS prior to this fix. Hope this helps.
