IIS PHP 500 Error After Successful PHP Package Install

Hello. I have recently received a package containing our new site from my SEO. This is a Wordpress site but I prefer to run things from my own servers.
I installed php 5.6 from Microsoft Web Platform Installer 5.0
After a few little issues I was given a successful report.  However the only thing that will display aside from php-info.php is installer.php.
Everything else is a blank screen (even installer-log.txt) on other browsers and 500 error on IE
Something simple that I'm overlooking?

I copied my terms.html from my active site over to the root of the new site and it does display.
I am using headers (apelectricservices.com, All Unassigned, 80 and sparepairtampabay.com, All Unassigned, 80 )
I have a dedicated VM that runs SQL server but this package contains mySQL. So I also used the Microsoft Web Platform Installer 5.0 to install mySQL on the SQL server so it is not on the webserver.
I checked the default documents and that seems ok.
I was forced to use the Manual package extraction under the Advanced

It's not necessarily simple.  If the Wordpress site was working, then it contains a login and server address for the MySQL server it was using.  While Wordpress can use a 'remote' server, the database and tables must be uploaded to it and the proper users created.  There are some database entries that must be changed to match the new setup also.

Here is the 'official' article about moving a Wordpress installation: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress  But since I don't know what you received, I have no way to tell you what is needed.

You ought to "Request Attention" and get the Wordpress topic area added to your question.

Will do but it came with the DB and it appears to have successfully created. Can you walk me through it possibly? I can send you the archive if you liie

No, I don't want your files because I can't recreate your environment.  It may have come with the DB but you said you installed MySQL on another machine.  Did you do something to install the DB on that server along with the credentials?  And did you do anything to tell Wordpress where to find it?
Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

I'm recreating the whole thing. It sent me a notice on the items it changed which were things like the db name and root password that I assigned. The package is an archive which contains a file database.db and an installer.php. The installer gives me the option to create a db but I suspect that I need to do this without making any of the author's changes.
I've just used the option to destroy the database tables and I'm going to give it a fresh shot with just the archive and installer.
Please look closely at the attached image and the info that is left and tell me what you thinkOriginal data. This is what I suspect needs to remain the same.

NEW WP-ADMIN USER: Username 'admin' already exists in the database.  Unable to create new account 

UPDATE `srtbwpblogs` SET domain = 'sparepairtampabay.com' WHERE domain = 'logicscdn.com'


created basic .htaccess file.  If using IIS web.config this process will need to be done manually.

The 'Installer' looks good.  Never seen that before.

You'll have to find a way to reset the 'admin' password for Wordpress so the admin pages will work.

'.htaccess' is for an Apache web server.  It would contain directives for the server.  I don't know what you would do with it for IIS.
