    Silverstripe-v2.3.0-rc2 Install Issue - W2K8 & IIS7 Link to this post

    Windows Server 2008
    IIS7
    PHP 5.2.8
    MySQL 5.1.30
    URL Rewrite Module for IIS7.0 (x86)
    Silverstripe-v2.3.0-rc2

    I have followed the instructions and only have an issue with Silverstripe. PHP is working correctly and returns PHPinfo. When attemping to access the silverstripe install screen, I get HTTP Error 500.0 Internal Server Error with code 0x00000000. I have checked the web.config, NTFS permissions and many other things. Let me know if you have any thoughts about how to fix. thanks.

    Are there any other logs or errors you can produce? The 500 error is unhelpfully brief

    I assume you've tested that other PHP scripts loads fine, etc?

    If I open install.php in my browser I get the following message. "If you can read this text in your browser then you don't have PHP installed."
    If I go to rewritetest.php through the localhost URL I get the error "mod_rewrite doesn't appear to be working" . I have uninstalled and reinstalled the URL rewrite module from iis.net.

    I know the 500 errors are pretty vauge but the event viewer logs or W3C logs from IIS are not generating anything.

    I thought that when I go to localhost/silverstripe I was supposed to be redirected to the install.php page to complete installation and detail the MySql settings. I am currently being redirected to /sapphire/main.php.

    Thanks much for any assistance.

    Hi Bob,

    Try visiting http://localhost/silverstripe/install.php yourself.

    If you're seeing the message "If you can read this text in your browser then you don't have PHP installed" then your server isn't executing install.php as a PHP script. I'm not sure why you can execute the phpinfo() test script and not install.php. Perhaps there is some setting in IIS to say which directories can contain PHP scripts?

    If I rename my php.ini to php.bak then everything works fine and I see the SilverStripe install page. Looks like the issue is the INI file but I have only changed it according to the instructions. I have attached the file to see if you notice anything out of place.
