This question about Installation of Foswiki: Answered
Error 500 on Strawberry install (windows)
I am trying to install the foswiki on windows from strawberry installer, everything runs OK, and I can access my configure screen without problems, but always when I try to enter in view screen I got error 500 from apache.
I tried to find any log but I didn´t got any useful information, anyone know how to solve this problem?
I have already tried to see the apache error log, but it hasn't any message. The only message that I get is in access log and the message is:
10.198.62.220 - - [20/Jan/2009:08:44:15 -0200] "GET /foswiki/bin/view/System/WebHome HTTP/1.1" 500 490
10.198.62.220 - - [20/Jan/2009:08:44:57 -0200] "GET /foswiki/bin/view.pl/System/WebHome HTTP/1.1" 500 490
I have tried use .pl, but this didn't work too.
I just installed foswiki using the windows installer, that also includes apache and strawberry perl. I tested on a Win2k3, that didn't have neither apache nor strawberry perl previously installed. Everything went fine.
Be sure you have something like the following in yout httpd.conf:
Apache should put details about internal server errors in the error.log... please review that.

My apache are writing logs, but aren´t writing any error log for this situation.
I use the same installer, but the only difference that I have to install foswiki in a default directory in disk D:, this directory is defined by my company, and I can´t change.
I will try to revise my apache configuration, but I didn´t have any idea where the problem could be.
Can you send the security permissions for the directories?
yup, there is a bug in the installer v1.0.0-1 that doesn't get the path right when you change it from the default
right now I'm not 100% positive what file needs changing (I don't use windows that much at the moment), but I'm betting that either the LocalLib
.cfg or LocalSite
.cfg files contain references to c:\PROGRAM... - change those to point to the right place.
I'll go back an look into it this weekend - and publish a new set of isntallers.

Hello for all,
As I said I have already change every configuration, but when I was changing the paths I didn´t realized that the template path have more than one place to change de default directories, when I change all paths start to work, thanks for the help.

and for future reference - I've uploaded Foswiki Windows installer v1.0.0-2 which fixes this issue.
