Definitely NOT a css issue... – Brian Driscoll Mar 23 '11 at 14:45

Contact your hosting provider, PHP shouldn't crash like this. Btw, is this a Win32 based host running PHP? Yuk.

Yes, it's Win Server 2003 with IIS6 running php5 – Ardeshir Mar 23 '11 at 14:47
+1 For "Yuk" part. – Mircea Vutcovici Mar 23 '11 at 15:19

PHP died hard, and probably took a chunk of IIS with it. Try restarting IIS, or even the entire server if it's possible

If at all possible, try moving to LAMP for PHP hosting. I've yet to see a Windows AMP stack that works well enough to be production-ready.

An application fault that is not making the system more unstable. That's why the kernel got the exception - to avoid the system instability. And the fact that he is seeing the error in a web page, means that IIS is running fine. – Mircea Vutcovici Mar 23 '11 at 15:21
IIS is running fine, PHP is not. Restarting IIS generally restarts all websites and dependent services, which may clear a transient error. – Hyppy Mar 23 '11 at 15:25
