    Smile Running php on 2008 server

    hi,
    How do I correctly setup php on windows 2008 server

    I get a "An unknown FastCGI error occured" message

    Is there a simple guide on what to check, like variables and settings on 2008 server to make sure this is setup correctly

    Many many thanks

    Hi

    Thank you for your very supportive Link

    much appreciated

    I did a search on my system windows Server 2008 and I could not locate
    php-cgi.exe which the example says is needed for the module mapping. The only reference I can find is to a fast CGI DLL iisfcgi.add in the Inetsrv foldeer under System32 folder

    Can you advise

    many thanks

    From the Forum link you sent me to, I am on the step below in Red in IIS, I need to, although optional, add in the path to the php-cgi.exe (edit Module Mapping)

    Below is from the Link in this forum - I copied and pasted
    Adding PHP Support

    Adding PHP is rather easy, while in the global settings:
    Open Handler Mappings
    On the right pane, select “Add Module Mapping…”
    Following this guide use these options:
    Request path: *.php
    Module: FastCgiModule
    Executable: W:\workspace\environment\language\php\5.3.0\php-cgi.exe
    Name: PHP 5.3 FastCGI
    Click OK
