Hello everybody!!

Could you please help me? I'm trying to run php on IIS in Windows 7 and when I try to install it following every step closely from php.net, it gives me an error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

 An unknown FastCGI error occurred

Module FastCgiModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler PHP_via_FastCGI Error Code 0x8007010b
Requested URL http://localhost:80/index.php Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\index.php Logon Method Anonymous Logon User Anonymous


I have no clue what I did wrong or what is wrong. Here's how I tried to install it:


enabled IIS and CGI

control panel > programs > Turn Windows features on or off > enabled Internet Information Service > World Wide Web Services >  Application Development Features > enabled CGI (all other checkmarks in the Application Development Features are OFF)

http://localhost/  works

downloaded and installed Microsoft 2008 C++ Runtime (x64) and did a Windows Update, updating it

downloaded PHP 5.4.15 VC9 x86 Non Thread Safe. unzipped it onto desktop to folder "php"

inside the folder "php", renamed the file "php.ini-production" into "php.ini"

edited the php.ini file:

changed this
 ; extension_dir = "ext"
 to this
 extension_dir = "ext"
changed this
 to this


also enabled these

left this line untouched
 log_errors = On

changed this
 ;error_log = php_errors.log
to this
 error_log = php_errors.log
 and created a file "php_errors.log" in the "php" folder

changed this
 ;cgi.force_redirect = 1
to this
 cgi.force_redirect = 0

changed this
to this

changed this
 ;fastcgi.impersonate = 1
to this
 fastcgi.impersonate = 1

changed this
 ;fastcgi.logging = 0
to this
 fastcgi.logging = 0


followed these instructions:
 1. In the Windows Start Menu choose "Run:", type "inetmgr" and click "Ok";
 2. In the IIS Manager user interface select the server node in the "Connections" tree view;
 3. In the "Features View" page open the "Handler Mappings" feature;
 4. In the "Actions" pane click "Add Module Mapping...";
 5. In the "Add Module Mapping" dialog enter the following:
  Request path: *.php
  Module: FastCgiModule
  Executable: C:\Users\Yanka\Desktop\php\php-cgi.exe
  Name: PHP_via_FastCGI
 6. Click "Request Restrictions" button and then configure the mapping to invoke handler only if request is mapped to a file or a folder;
 7. Click OK on all the dialogs to save the configuration.

in command line application, entered these 3 lines, pressing the "Enter" key after each line:
 %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe set config ^
 -section:system.webServer/defaultDocument /+"files.[value='index.php']" ^
after entering these lines, the command line application said something, beginning with "Applied configuration changes..."



Thank you!!

Doesn't IIS contain a "Web Installer Platform" that allows a one-click installation of PHP for use in IIS?

Lives by faith, thinks by logic.
