My developers are needing PHP on IIS. They have asked me to provide a server with PHP and IIS on a 32bit operating system. The issue is that we are proceeding with 64bit platforms only
So in response I researched the ability to install PHP 5.3 on IIS7 with Server 2008 64bit enabling 32bit applications to run. I followed the following URL: http://www.iishacks.com/2011/02/14/how-to-install-php-5-3-fastcgi-on-windows-2008-iis-7/
After installing PHP, we are getting the following error:
Windows Events give us this -
Activation context generation failed for "C:\PHP\php-cgi.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,process
.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
Not sure what we are missing? Should I just go back to a 32bit OS? We have a server with 32Gb RAM, I am trying not to go backwards in OS.
Thanks ahead of your help!
