The FastCGI executable could not be found

Recommended Posts

I can't get PHP 5.3.15 to install correctly either on my home computer or on 2 servers at work. I've done plenty of installs in the past, so I don't know what is wrong this time. Anyone else run into this? At home, the OS is Windows Vista Business. At work it is Windows Server 2003.

No, that's not the problem. Is there any documentation that specifies what I should check in IIS to make sure everything has been done correctly. The only thing I can think of is the file extension mapping, and that's been set correctly.


Get error 404 for any .php page. I've got some other pages that are not .php and those display.

I think you have to setup IIS's config to point to a fastcgi dll that comes with iis (or is an extension) then configure the fastcgi via a text file with the path to PHP. It's been a while since i setup PHP on IIS, and even when I did last time I think it was on a newer IIS than you are using.


Try following this guide for how to configure it: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/247/using-fastcgi-to-host-php-applications-on-iis-60/
