Internal Server Error 500 - PHP Production Server Only

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I keep getting an Internal server error 500 when trying to run my PHP web app, it works fine on my dev server (Zend Server CE on Windows) but not on the production server (Apache on Ubuntu). Other projects run fine on the production server. I have a suspicion that it may be to do with the way I am including files. For example I have a small script below which handles a POST and is supposed to process accordingly but fails. I've checked the PHP error log, Apache error log with no results. I've tried to reduce the code to the point where I am just using the setters, and it still fails. I'm completey stumped! Please help!
## Includes
set_include_path($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . "/onlinebookingv4/scripts/php");
