I had installed a Joomla 1.5.x for my website and it was running well earlier. Now when I open the administrator section it displays the below error simply,  

but it works fine in my local. the same source downloaded and checked in local.

=============================
Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@testdomain.org 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.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

How can I fix this issue? any idea's/suggestions please

What's in your .htaccess file? Possibly something fishy in there causes this error. And also is AllowOverride enabled at the server level? Because it's required to be able to use .htaccess.

Okay, so that rules out a problem with .htaccess. Did you check the rights on the joomla files/folders?
They should be 755 (rwxr_xr_x) I believe, so you should change them to that. It's possible that a server running suphp/suexec will return a 500 error when the rights are to lenient (like 777).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Are you browsing to the webpage using IE? If so do you have friendly error messages enabled and can you disable them so you can see the actualy error that the webserver returns?

Also you said it already has 755 permissions, does the administrator directory and the files in it have 755 too (and not 777)?
