IIS 7 PHP time to load issue

Hello everyone,

First of all I have to say that I don't know much about WEB Servers so I will need detailed help :P

I have a Windows 2008 R1 x64 Server with IIS 7 in which I installed PHP using FastCGI which installed the version 5.2.14 of PHP.

Now I have the trouble that every form in PHP takes a long long time to load, overall if it makes calls to a local MySql Database.

Now the quiestions:
Is this a common problem?
Can be fixed?
if not, can I install an APACHE server with PHP and run PHP from there?

in advance, many thanks!

I use a program called AppServ (there are a lot of others like WinLamp or Xamp) to run PHP and Mysql on windows boxes, infact you only need an XP box to run it so it can be more cost effective. Im runing a CRM system for the company i workd for using this method.

Personaly i find this a lot easer than the nightmare os IIS and PHP coexisting.

The trouble is that I have a lot of apps using not only PHP but .NET Framework aswell.

so I can't run aspx forms from Apeche. I use IIS to run PHP because if I install apache I will have to run APACHE from a different port which can cause problems if a client try to load a page from apache from within a restricted network.

My team-mate tells me that the PHP worked just fine, except to HESK (http://www.hesk.com/). In HESK worked the admin part but not the ticket submit.

So my team-mate enabled the debugging in PHP. From that moment other apps in PHP stopped working (including HESK). He disabled the debugging but the damage was already dealt.

are some hidden options in IIS that could make this to happen?

Please Check or test if it's a PHP issue or a mysql connection issue:

Test a PHP page without db connections (for example, a phpinfo() page)
and compare with a simple page with db connecion and a simple query and data visualization.

IF only the db-connected page is slow, then you can check the host you are using to connect (prefer using the mysql IP if it's a DNS issue)
If all php pages are slow check the PHP.ini the configuration for "output_buffering"

Also ckeck the CPU usage during some page load  for the IIS (inetinfo) and Mysql processes

Hi fraigor, thanks for the reply.

The problem is for SOME applications.

We have about 10 PHP sites where in 3 of them PHP fails.
in 7 of the PHP app, all works perfect, db-connections (mysql and SQL Server).
in 3 of the PHP apps, nothing works.

you can try to load one of the 3 that fails:
http://www.liveprojects.cl/soporte1/ should load but it doesn't.

This is what that form should load:
http://146.155.105.169/soporte/
(this is a contingency that we applied in the meanwhile, it uses windows 2003 server)

I found the problem.

In some of the forms I had:

include "conectar.php"

and I had "conectar" in include path and at the same time in the specific application. This generated the error.

Thanks anyway!
