Platform: PHP 5.3 on Windows 2008 R2 Server, IIS 7.5

Hi, experts. I have set up PHP 5.3 on my Windows 2008 R2 server.

I've placed a phpinfo.php file in web root: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\phpinfo.php

It is a simple PHP file that reports that PHP is working. But when I load my phpinfo.php file, IIS shows me this error:

"HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found. The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map."

In IIS Handler Mappings I have entry for:

Name: PHP53_via_FastCGI
Path: *.php
Handler: FastCGIModule
Entry Type: Local

What else do I need to do to enable PHP on my Windows server?

Thanks very much for any advice.

Eric

Hi, Dave,

Thanks for this note. I followed those instructions carefully; I configured php.ini, and I set up the Handler Mapping. I also installed PHP Manager for IIS, and that reports that PHP is installed correctly. Thus, I am puzzled. I am missing some configuration that IIS expects.

I'll keep looking and reading. Thank you for any further advice you might have.

All best,

Eric

Dave, I know what I did wrong. In IIS, I added the PHP Handler Mapping under the server name, which is "Monkseal". But not under the default IIS site, which is where the Handler Mapping needed to go.

Thanks again for your help. Have a great evening.

Best from Eric
