Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

All my application pools were stopped this morning after I got to work. I can restart them, but when I try to load the website the app pool crashes again.

Update: I've looked in the GAC as the error below suggests and it seems that the file is not there. How do I get it back?

Update 2: I found a further error in the event log saying

The Module name FastCgiModule path C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetsrv\iisfcgi.dll
returned an error from registration.  The data is the error.

So following the information from here http://forums.iis.net/t/1153937.aspx I removed CGI and my sites are working again. This has fixed the initial problem, but now I don't have FastCGI so I'm fairly sure that PHP will no longer be working (I don't have any PHP at the moment to test).

Original Post

I'm getting this error in the event viewer:


IIS Manager could not load type 'Web.Management.PHP.PHPProvider, Web.Management.PHP, 
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8175de49a9aec91d' for module provider
'PHP' that is declared in %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\administration.config. 
Verify that the type is correct, and that the assembly that contains the module 
provider is in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

Exception:System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 
'Web.Management.PHP, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8175de49a9aec91d'

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value 
[HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value     


Everything was working fine last night when I left work, and since they've done the maintenance it's all broken.

What changes occurred during the maintenance? –  Shane Madden Jun 5 '12 at 20:50
Um I'm not sure, it was done by our VPS hosting provider who said We have an emergency maintenance task that will fix the issues related to the power panel not functioning on the VPS's, Virtuozzo updates have also been scheduled during the same window. –  James Hay Jun 5 '12 at 20:55
