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

<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <rewrite>
      <rules>
			<rule name="WordPress: http://abc.com" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
				<match url="*"/>
					<conditions>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
					</conditions>
				<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>
			</rule></rules>

Error 500 is pretty random, look in the error log of your IIS.

In IIS, go to that site and see where the logs are going. It is a site specific setting when it was created and added to the App Pool.
