Slowly losing my mind here. I had PHP 5.2 working fine (ISAPI) under IIS, but for some extension I needed 5.3. So no worries, I installed this but it turns out ISAPI is not supplied anymore.
I followed the install tutorials for fastcgi and ended up with a 500 internal server error for every PHP page served.
So my current situation is: I have fastcgi removed. In my websites I have added PHP (head, get, post) and routed them to c:\php\php-cgi.exe.
Result: every PHP page I try (even the ones with just text) gives 404 not found error. Any HTML file I put in the same folder, serves without a hitch.
Who can help me please... How hard can something like this be right? For me apparently very hard.
ran the installer as suggested below. Set it to use fastcgi.
fcgiext.inifile looks like this now:
from the command-line a 3 line PHP file with just
- from the server the same PHP file with just
phpinfo();results in the internal server 500 error.
- from the server a PHP file with just text works fine
- when changing the document types in IIS management console and point the PHP extension directly to
c:\php\php-cgi.exeresults in 404 for every PHP file
php.ini.productionfile which came in the distribution. No edits were made.
Setting the IIS PHP handler directly to PHP (not via
c:\php\php-cgi.exe results in the following:
- display a PHP page with only text....works fine
- display a page with only
phpinfo();results in 404 not found
