Most likely something use the server. I am around the EC2 bitnami Light stack. I have attempted Zend, the state oauth.internet library, etc. Just individuals files result in 500 internal server error.

The code I am using may be the simple example supplied by google.

The logs on my small server did not have anything about these specific files.

Any ideas?

Add error logging on top of your file:

error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT);

It may be determined by allow_furl_open which can be turned off if you are on hosting that is shared.
