Hi, thanks for your help. I am hoping someone can pinpoint the cause of this problem for me. I greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

browser error:
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, admin@domain.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

In my error log file from apache, this is the description of the error:
Premature end of script headers: php.exe, referer: http://localhost/site/Login.php

The error message provided is generic and kind of useless. Have you installed PHP properly (test with phpinfo()?)
Look like a installation problem to me.
Please specify: operating system, server (probably apache 2.0.46 on Windows) and php mode (module/cgi).

Most of the case, after install php, you need to add
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
and
LoadModule php4_module modules/libphp4.so
to http.conf of Apache server
The last line you will need to change to point to your php module.

It could be something as simple as a syntax error in one of your scripts, if PHP is otherwise working.

1. You may need to reinstall apache.
2. http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=14822

Try to run:

<?php
echo "GEM100 rules!";
?>

and see if it works at all.
