Unable to install plugins wordpress - I did restart IIS Application Tool and the theme installed.

I am very new with Godaddy, just bought a new hosting and new domain last week. I also tried to install a wordpress website to my host. The installation was ok, but when I tried to install a new theme, I alway got error "  error code 500: Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator to inform of the time the error occurred and of anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log"

I did restart IIS Application Tool and the theme was able to install. But I could not install plugins. It is showing same issue with error code 500. I put "<httpErrors errorMode="Detailed" />
<asp scriptErrorSentToBrowser="true"/>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
<compilation debug="true"/>
</system.web>" to web.config file, then i am getting this error when install plugin:"


PHP Warning:  An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with or this server&#8217;s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the <a href="">support forums</a>. (WordPress could not establish a secure connection to Please contact your server administrator.) in G:\PleskVhosts\\httpdocs\wp-includes\update.php on line 132


Does anyone have a solution?


Thank you.
