I’m running PIWIK on IIS 7 with ISAPI on Windows Server 2008 as a website traffic statistics tool but sometime it raises 500 Internal Server Error. So I decide to try with PHP using FastCGI module to host the web application.
After few days of making change, my issue with Piwik Server Error on IIS 7 has been solved and is working very well. Today, I’ll share with you 2 resources that very useful for me when I try to reinstall PHP on IIS 7 with FastCGI component on Windows Server 2008. I did the same process on my Windows 7 Professional and it works well too.
1. A YouTube video on Installing PHP 5 on IIS 7 with FastCGI
2. An article from learn.iis.net on Using FastCGI to Host PHP Applications on IIS 7
And another video from learn.iis.net on Setting Up FastCGI for PHP is very useful for you.
The process is not really complex, just ensure you follow all steps carefully to make it’s up and running on you box.
Any issue, feel free to post your comment.
