I have installed php 5.4.21 on a windows 2008 R2 server running IIS7.
I have followed everything for configuration in the IIS and in the php.ini according to the guides and now have the following issue:

If I create a test.php file with the classic:
<?php phpinfo();?>

Open in new window

It runs fine on my development machine (I've installed PHP before!)
I upload it to the server and I get a 500 Error.

If I run the same test.php file from the command line on the server (running php-cgi.exe) I get the output just fine (I am piping the output into a text file and then pasting that text file into a html page to display the contents correctly formatted).

Where can I start looking? Suggestions?

Regards,

Check permissions on the folders/files
Have you checked the log files to see what they say?

Permissions all seem fine - users and system have read/execute etc.
Log files (iis) aren't saying much...

Hello,

I would suggest; configure IIS to give you detailed error message on the website where you have put phpinfo file. Also, make sure that your browser is set to show detailed error message.

Addition to you can see event viwer for the detailed error.

I have had awful problems getting any browser to show decent errors! I got round it by loading firefox onto the web server and running the page on there - low and behold a 'set locale' error was causing the failure. Set the time and date locale to London and all now works.
