Try these PHP settings:

ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
error_reporting(E_ALL);

If that does not get what you want, contact your hosting provider and ask them to set things up so you can see errors.  You may also want to consider setting up an error log.

What exactly are you getting? A blank page or is it ignoring the errors?

It's probably fixed by

C:\windows\system32\inetsrv>appcmd.exe set config "<your site name>" -section:system.webServer/httpErrors /existingResponse:"PassThrough"

I can not do the commands. Is there a button I could press in iis7 manager?

On a browser, I see '500 error'

Just make sure you have Show friendly HTTP error disabled, Tools > Internet Options > Advanced and deselect the checkbox.
It maybe as simple as this.
In 'IIS manager' select your site in the left page tree, select Error Pages and click Edit Features and select detailed errors.
And remember the ini_set bit above.

That should not matter.  Please go back to this comment.  Copy the two lines of PHP code into a script that looks like this and run it to see what you get.  If you don't see an error message, get professional help with your setup.

<?php
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
error_reporting(E_ALL);
trigger_error('Thud', E_USER_ERROR);

Open in new window

detailed errors is what I asked for.
There were alot of 'details' but no relevant information about php error.

Ray's trigger error looked the same before and after 'detailed errors'.  I saw a real php error.

Thanks both.
