PHP installation on IIS 6,Win Serv 2003,64 bit server

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install PHP 5.1.6 on a Windows Server(2003)(IIS 6)(Intel Xeon 64 bit).

I am doing all the directives on the PHP documents.(installing ISAPI module)

But I am getting CGI Timeout error.

I made a great search but can not get over this.

So, if any of you guys can help me solve this problem it will be great!

Here's all the nice error:
CGI Timeout

The specified CGI application exceeded the allowed time for processing. The server has deleted the process.

By the way, I can not convert to Apache.

The problem is not php or your installation. PHP and the server have a default time that a script is allowed to run and when you go over that the server cancels the script. google CGI timeout  and you should get the answer you need.

Thanks for the reply!

Well, it takes around 5 minutes to get the error. I see that it is 5 minutes in seconds defined in the IIS settings.

But , 5 minutes are too long for phpinfo().

I should get the page in seconds.

That's why changing the CGI Timeout seconds doesn't do anything here.
