Windows Hosting wordpress website Not working return HTTP ERROR 500

My wordpress website not working, return HTTP ERROR 500 ,

I am using windows hosting, my web.config file,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
			<rule name="WordPress:" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
				<match url="*"/>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
				<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>

How to solve the error?

Disclaimer: I don’t work with wordpress, so i’m gonna make a wild guess, and then someone with more experience will come up with the actual answer.

Wouldn’t that put it into an infinite loop, since ‘index.php’ would match “*”?

If you check your error log on the server it should give you an idea where the problem is.

May i know windows IIS server where is stored error log file?

Try Googling the above query.

Sorry I use Linux servers and the error file is usually in the same folder as the code. I recommend searching as @John_Betong suggested.
