PHP5 + MySQL gives Internal Server Error

I get an HTTP 500 Internal Server Error when I execute some scripts.

I have narrowed it down to sections of the scripts that use the mysql_connect(). Other scripts, that don't reference the database, work.

It seems like when it tries to use the DB library it throws an error. How do I troubleshoot this error?

Fresh installation of XP Professional, PHP5 (current General Release) and MySQL5 (current generally available release) and Apache 1.3.41.

PHP Fatal error:  require_once(): Failed opening required './includes/Defines.php' (include_path='.;c:\php\includes') in C:\Webroot\somedomain.com\wikimanual\index.php on line 30

update mysql_connect(...) to:
mysql_connect(...) or die( "Error: ".mysql_error() );

check the index.php on line 30, it does a require_once as shown, however, the file:
C:\Webroot\somedomain.com\wikimanual\includes\Defines.php
does not exist.

Ok. That's the reason. Your script is unable to locate Defines.php. Basically the path to that is incorrect. Try providing the full path:
require_once('C:\Webroot\somedomain.com\wikimanual\includes\Defines.php');

(I am just guessing the path. Adjust if necessary)

The problem was with PHP5. I restored C:\PHP5 from a backup, and now everything is gravy.
