  • Error trying to load fcgiext.dll (fastcgi)

    Jul 28, 2014 02:11 PM|fjleon1980|LINK

    Hello, i am trying to install php 5.4 on iis6 (win 2003 r2 x86)

    Here are the steps i did:

    1. Unpack everything to c:\php and give the IUSR account read and execute privileges
    2. Install vcredist 2008 sp1 (x86)
    3. Install fastcgi 1.5
    4. Run the .js to write the fcgiext.ini , pointing the executable to c:\php\php-cgi.exe
    5. Add the .php extension in the configuration section so to associate the application to the .dll of fastcgi
    6. Add the web service extension to the same dll.
    7. Add index.php as a recognized document extension
    8. Rebooted

    When i access test.php, i get the error in the event viewer: Filter dll could not be loaded (referencing fcgiext.dll), the error is in the data: 0000007F.

    When looking through that error, i found references to missing procedures in the dll. How can i fix it? Is there any other way to use php in IIS6?
