IIS 8.5 PHP installed Event Error 1000 Please help

Windows 2012 R2 64 Bit Server
IIS 8.5
PHP 5.3.28

I just moved my web sites from a windows 2003 server with IIS 6.

Yesterday I installed PHP on the new web server using Web Platform Installer 5.0

created a test php page


Opened IE on the web server   http://localhost/phpinfo.php

I got this error 500

TTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v5.6\php-cgi.exe - The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly

Most likely causes:
•IIS received the request; however, an internal error occurred during the processing of the request. The root cause of this error depends on which module handles the request and what was happening in the worker process when this error occurred.
•IIS was not able to access the web.config file for the Web site or application. This can occur if the NTFS permissions are set incorrectly.
•IIS was not able to process configuration for the Web site or application.
•The authenticated user does not have permission to use this DLL.
•The request is mapped to a managed handler but the .NET Extensibility Feature is not installed.

Things you can try:
•Ensure that the NTFS permissions for the web.config file are correct and allow access to the Web server's machine account.
•Check the event logs to see if any additional information was logged.
•Verify the permissions for the DLL.
•Install the .NET Extensibility feature if the request is mapped to a managed handler.
•Create a tracing rule to track failed requests for this HTTP status code. For more information about creating a tracing rule for failed requests, click here.

I just noticed I have PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.6 installed

Could that be a problem?
David Johnson, CD, MVPOwnerCommented:
yes, uninstall all and then use the wpi again
php 5.3 went EOL 9 months ago.
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:

I uninstalled PHP using this method

1) In IIS Manager, click your machine in left pane. Then click "Handler Mappings" in right pane. Find the "PHP5?_via_FastCGI" for the PHP version you want to remove, right click then "Remove".

2) In IIS Manager, click your machine in left pane. Then click "FastCGI Settings" in right pane. Find the "C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v5.?\php.ini" for the PHP version you want to remove, right click then "Remove".

3) Go to Control Panel, "Uninstall a Program". Uninstall those extensions for PHP 5.? (WinCache etc)

4) Run Windows Explorer, remove folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v5.?".

After I ran that I ran Web Platform Installer (WPI) and I only selected PHP 5.6

After install was complete I found both 5.3 and 5.6 folders

Why would WPI install both versions?
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:

I removed them all again

Now trying to find a stand alone php 5.6 windows installer

this site does not respond  http://windows.php.net/

still looking  

Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
CGI is installed

But it is disabled

How do I enable it?
In IIS Manager, do you see the CGI icon under IIS of your site?
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:

Timeout.   00:15:00
Use new console for each invocation. False

Impersonate user.   True

I've had this problem recently and I have notes somewhere but I cannot remember the exact solution. Right click on php-cgi.exe  and Run as Administrator and re-test. Results?
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
Php-cgi.exe. System error
The program can't start because msvcr110.dll is missing from your computer try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

Same event Id 1000 error

I again searched for the file and it was found in c:\windows\system32

Does iis need access to this folder?
When you downloaded and installed VS C++, did you install x86 version or x64? Some report you need both installed http://serverfault.com/questions/517694/cant-start-php-cgi-exe-msvcr110-dll-is-missing
