I am sorry to be posting this very newbie topic. Also, I have read the FAQ, written to the moderator, looked at the search results for installation failure, but haven't got anything which is directly relevant to my need. I have been struggling with this for the last 2 days and haven't got anywhere near resolving a basic issue. I will be really grateful if someone can help me, as starting a web journal (for which announcements have been made) is very close to my heart.
Anyhow, I've been able to extract all the files required for installation to my server site (which is a Windows IIS server), and when I openthe url where the ojs directory is (www.fosssil.in/ojs/ojs-2.4.2
), I am presented with the OJS interface for installation but installation fails giving me a 500 internal server error (there is no sufficiently informative error log that I could spot). I am sure that I am not able to tweak the config file well enough and therefore installation is failing. My server is a Windows server (IIS), it has PHP higher than 5.0 and MySQL, with which I was able to set up a database. If you'd be able to help, I could send the config file around.
Thanks again for any pointers,
