Do you have access to the Apache error logs at all - I've never used
that kind of remote server before, but there must be some way of
getting at them I imagine. Because generally, a 500 is something going
wrong with the script being run, and without reading the actual error
message, there's not really any way of tracking it down and solving
Good luck, though...

Here's the log entry:
Premature end of script headers: [...]/mwiki/config/index.php
Obviously it's not being run properly indeed. I already contacted my ISP but
any additional hint is welcome.
