I'm having trouble with installing Wordpress on a dedicated Microsoft Windows Web Server 2008 R2.
I've installed Wordpress Version 2.9.2 from Web platform installer 3.0.
After installation when I try to access wordpress, either from ~/index.php or ~/wp-admin/install.php I get the error:
HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error File monitoring is enabled for a file which could not be found
Modul: FastCgiModule Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler Handler: PHP52_via_FastCGI Error Code: 0x80070003
I have both .Net 2.0 and .Net 4.0 installed.
Adding a "phpinfo.php" gives me the same error.
The application pool in IIS7 that's used for the website is: "No Managed Code" and set to "Integrated" in "Managed Pipeline Mode".
I've tried to reboot the machine.
What's more can I try?
I solved this issue by adding permissions to the PHP folder. It seems the Web Installer doesn't do this by default. In my case I need to add Read&Execute, Read, and List folder contents permissions to the NETWORK SERVICE user group.
If you already have another working copy of PHP installed on your server you can simply duplicate its permissions by looking at it in Properties->Security.
After reading splattne's answer I had a look at my application pools and realized that I had 2. The one I originally created and also the one created by Web Platform Installer (probably caused by an earlier attempt to fix issues with Web Deploy).
To solve this,
I also had a similar issue after installing Web Deploy. For me, it turned out that I previously installed and subsequently uninstalled the PHP 5.4 handler, after downgrading to PHP 5.3. While the PHP 5.3 version works nicely for me, the 5.4 handler mapping lingered. I guess this never came to the forefront, because for some reason the 5.3 handler mapping was chosen for *.php files. After I deleted the 5.4 handler mapping (leaving only the 5.3 handler mapping), the problem went away.
I had two entries for PHP5X_via_FastCGI in handler mappings.
I deleted the one what was no longer there.
