My PHP version is 5.3 – Utku Dalmaz Oct 24 '10 at 22:48
We would need much more information to answer this, are there any messages logged, does it work without ssl, what should the code do, do static pages work, what os and web server is this running on. – Sam Oct 24 '10 at 22:50
Everything works fine on normal HTTP but PHP doesnt work on HTTPS. Static pages works great on HTTPS. Runs on APACHE. And PHP 5.3 – Utku Dalmaz Oct 24 '10 at 23:00
Do you have access to the apache logs? The answer is probably in there. – chunkyb2002 Oct 25 '10 at 0:15
i can see error and access logs only – Utku Dalmaz Oct 25 '10 at 0:35

The cause of errors reported as "Internal Server Error" are shown in the web-server's error log.

Causes vary widely, for example the PHP script might not have the correct access permissions.
