I'm new to Silverstripe and this is my first install into a Windows server. I used the auto installer through Windows Web Platform Installer so assumed everything woud be a breeze to install. However, after install, I get a HTTP Error 500.19 - Install Server Error, here is the message:

HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error

The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

I also notice the ss folder does not exist so I assume the install has not completed.

The View more info link is to microsoft that says the resolution is to remove the faulty config from the web.config file, which is great if you know what to remove.

Any thoughts on what the error could be? I was thinking of re running the install, but is do you know if it's okay to do this without uninstalling all or any of the components first? Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers and regards

I think the problem is the IIS Rewrite Module wasn't installed.

If you find it in the Web Platform installer and install it yourself there, does it resolve the situation?
