In IIS manager (7.0), you can double click FastCGI, and then double click PHP-CGI.EXE to exit this value. After that, restart the server from IIS manager

comment ram disk mirroring part of physical disk
How sure are you of that? And will the OS also cache all files that could fit regardless of their site? I would expect the OS to not cache an entire 3GB file if the OS has 3,5GB free memory left. I would expect to only cache the file partially if at all. And thus fragment the caching of that file, if cached at all.

comment ram disk mirroring part of physical disk
@JamesRyan no. any writes are written in the RAM first. The program that did the write can then continue without waiting for anything. The application/driver that manages the mirrored directory eventually does the "write-through" is of no imporance to the program doing the write action.

comment ram disk mirroring part of physical disk
My specific use case is written above. The OS manages on file level. The OS might want to flush a cached DB table file when the OS sees the file not being accessed in a specific time. I want to prevent that, because I want the entire DB in the RAM at all times! The server is a dedicated DB server, but the OS doesn't know this. So your answer isn't really an answer.

comment ram disk mirroring part of physical disk
@JamesRyan It says so right in the text above: --- Any writes should be done "write-through" to the physical directory, or maybe with buffer of max 1 second. (So in case of power-loss, losses would be minimal.) ---

comment md/raid:md2: cannot start dirty degraded array, kernel panic
Google helped out a bit, so won't start a new topic. As /dev/sdc3 was 'removed' from md2 , all I needed to do is "mdadm --add /dev/md2 /dev/sdc3" ... It was re-added and the drive started recovering. I could keep track of the recovering status by periodically typing "mdadm -D /dev/md2"

comment md/raid:md2: cannot start dirty degraded array, kernel panic
Success! I recovered the partitions. I wasn't able to address the "removed" notices correctly. But still doing "mdadm -D /dev/md126" and then "mdadm --assemble --force /dev/md127 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2 /dev/sdc2" did the trick ... The root partition still is not optimal as it only runs on 2 of 3 disks. I will start a new thread on this topic, asking how to repair the disks.

comment md/raid:md2: cannot start dirty degraded array, kernel panic
To be more thorough in my comment : md/0_0 shows raid device2 as removed. md/1_0 states all 3 raid devices as active sync. Now how can I take care of the removed notice?

comment md/raid:md2: cannot start dirty degraded array, kernel panic
Hooray. With centos6 live cd i.can see the following md's: /dev/md125 /dev/md126 /dev/md127. And also /dev/md/0_0 and /dev/md/1_0. Md125 and md126 show raiddevice2 as removed. Md127 shows all 3 raiddevices in activesync.

comment md/raid:md2: cannot start dirty degraded array, kernel panic
One more Question: with knoppix the md's weren't recognized (that is there was no /dev/md1 and so on)... Do you expect them to be available automatically with CentOS6 Live CD ? If not, what should I do to have them recognized so I can then do the mdadm stuff? Im asking this in advance just to avoid going to the datacenter again, experiencing it, and come back empty handed and then ask this question.
