WebMatrix: site url doesn't work (localhost:1234) RRS feed

  • User-1708407918 posted

    Good evening to all,

    I received this error when I need to display a php file in my site created in WebMatrix: "The requested page can not be served due to the extensions configuration. If the page is a script, add a manager. If the file needs to be downloaded, add a MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) map". Is there a way trough I can solve it?

    If I open the php file in localhost:80 (IIS Express server) the file is compiled and I can see the site. Thanks.

    Hi alvatorericcardi,

    Firstly check that you enable CGI feature setting or not?

    Check that php handler mapping is available or not:

    Install PHP by using Web Pletform installer:
    1. Open web platform installer window,click products.
    2. Click frameworks,and select current version of PHP.
    3. Click install.
    4. Click I Accept. Web PI installs the PHP packages.
    5. Click Finish.

    Windows 10.

    Anyway, the second and third check are ok. I installed php 7.2 for IIS Express and I enabled the fastcgi module in the IIS Manager.

    Ok, I selected the voice that you indicated, so I can say that I have done all you said but nothing, it doesn't work.

    You could try to use an alternative like VS Code.

    So we can't even install dependencies? But why? Is the HDD space so expensive. I will pay you, if Microsoft has no money?
