I'm having some trouble with a SF5 install on a new host that I'm evaluating. I see a 500 error whenever the browser makes a PUT request to a SF web service (e.g. /Sitefinity/Services/Pages/PagesService.svc)
I have added the following to my web.config file as suggested in other posts on this error
I have asked that the hosting support team ensure the PUT verb is on for .svc services, but haven't heard back from them as of yet.
Is there anything else I might ask the hosting support team to look for in the IIS settings to help resolve?
Any help here would be greatly appreciated,

In case anyone else has this problem, here's how I solved it :
In order to get a better error message from IIS, I added the following to my web.config file
This allowed me to see which handler was causing the 500 error (LiveStreamingHandler). As I'm on a shared hosting plan, I removed that particular handler (luckily I don't need to use it) by adding this to the web.config file
After adding that, the web services no longer return with a 500 error.
