Stand alone TestRail installation issues windows server

I’m trying to setup TestRail on windows server 2016. I followed the installation instructions from below document.

http://docs.gurock.com/testrail-admin/installation-windows

However, when I try http://localhost/testrail/index.php, I’m getting HTTP 500. I don’t have much experience with setting up PHP based systems. Here are the details of installed versions on this server.

Windows Cache Extension 2.0 (x64) for PHP 7.2
Windows Cache Extension 2.0 (x86) for PHP 7.2
PHP 7.2.26 (x64)
PHP 7.2.26 (x86)
Microsoft Drivers 5.3(x64) for PHP v7.2 for SQL Server in IIS
Microsoft Drivers 5.3(x86) for PHP v7.2 for SQL Server in IIS

I copied testrail folder under c:\interput\wwwroot. Installed SQL Server Express and setup us a mixed mode user login. Also did the other setup needed i.e, creating testrail database etc…

How to resolve this HTTP 500 error. Any help is appreciated.

TIA.
