A 500 http status code is a server side application error.

The error details are found by default in c:\inetpub\temp\php-errors.log as described above but the location is the error_log= parameter in the php config. That is if it is coming from php.

Enable failed request tracing in IIS7 for more info too:

Server errors can be saved both in the IIS log as in the HTTPERR logfile. This file is in

% systemroot% \ system32 \ logfiles

The HTTP.sys error log are unlikely to apply in this case as it is an applciation 500 error.

% systemroot% \ system32 \ logfiles\ HTTp error logs is error when the http handler cannot talk correctly with IIS. (400 and 503 errors mostly)

IIS appears to be handling this.

Failed tracing will tell you more of teh 500 error that IIS produces.
