    PhpInfo shows thread safety is enabled. Seems like you are using thread safe version of PHP. Can you follow steps outlined in this article? Article recommend you to run a non-thread safe PHP when used in fastcgi mode. You can first just try out non-thread safe version and see if it helps.

     ok ill try i not too smart at this  as i just set it up i figured id just have to do the php install and set up in its steps to install and bang would work as i wanna make php  guestbook work under my server side includes my .shtml files

     ah i still having problems  what i did was installed a non thread version  i got kinda confused with the article  but what i did was installed the windows installer version of 5.2.8 non thread php  and if i do the phpinfo one  it says that the thread security is now disabled but still get errors

    http://mike1.webhop.org/easy_php_guestbook.html  is the link for my guest book i wanna try but when u leave comment  it just shows coding for the php  

    http://mike1.webhop.org/test.php   is the file for ya to see my php settings  maybe u can verify what i need to do

    I doubt using the threaded version has anything to do with your issue here. The threaded version has been around for the most part of a decade and has been (and still is) used by many IIS users.

    If some PHP pages are working and others are just spitting out a whole lot of code like garble, then I'd suggest that the issue is that some of your scripts are using the short PHP tag. That is they open with <? instead of <?php which on a default install of PHP means they will not work on IIS. You can fix this by either ensuring all your PHP scripts are using the full <?php opening tag, or alternatively (and more simply) modify you php.ini so that the short_open_tag directive is set to on, save it, and recycle your app pool.

    If this doesn't work then it could also possibly have something to do with mimetype or scriptmaps, so let me know how you get on.

     ill try the first 2 u gave me  options for  considering  i not very experienced with all this anymore my knowlege of like sql and stuff stopped in 2000 with nt5 and stuff in college  so i not very advanced so some of your terminolgy  over my head for the moment  but ill try looking in the ini file first and then or change the script



    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 4:26 PM
  • User991473312 posted

     ok neither worked  if i just change the ini file to change the tag to ON  still shows code  if i change it back and alter the file from <? to <?php  i get either a 500 internal error or unrecongized call


    here is my link to me http://mike1.webhop.org/php_guestbook.php

    and if you can look at the code here is where i got the free one from it was linked off the techrepublic website




    cuz now i getting frustrated again doh

    When you changed your php.ini file, did you check your phpinfo to ensure it was set to on? I'll see if I can download the scipt and take a look at it.

    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 4:45 PM
  • User2093557029 posted

     Just read on their site that the script DOES use short tags, so you will need to have the short_open_tags directive set to on for it to work. I even saw a guy (Dan Dan) in the test comment area of the site who said he got the script working on IIS after enabling this option.

     ok i re changed to ON and restarted the webserver and checked the phpinfo still says off


    and i dont know what application pool recyling means i figured u ment restart the webserver

    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 4:58 PM
  • User991473312 posted

     ya i noticed the help area  the forum i gonna try it  but could you tell me how to recyle then or what i need to do after i change the ini file to ON


    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 4:59 PM
  • User2093557029 posted

     Are you editing the correct php.ini file? According to you phpinfo the loaded php.ini file is C:\PHP\php.in. To recycle your application pool, open your IIS manager, expand the tree so you can see the item "application pools" and then select your application pool and select "recycle" from the menu on the right hand side.

  • User991473312 posted

     ok i found the application pool and for recyling but still doesnt change the phpinfo

    what application pool should i be using with my websites  i have tried 3  the classic net one the default app one and just the defaults the computer makes for each website i make


    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 5:05 PM
  • User991473312 posted

     i dunno why it is still pointing to c:\php  when the file it suposed to be using is the C:\phpnonthread     as i do not know how change from threaded to non threaded

     so where else is the computer forcing to keep reading at C:\php  and stuff cuz now this ridiculus  it doesnt change grrr

     Which one is your site using? If you select your site and click on "basic settings" on the right you should be presented with a window which will tell you which app pool you are using...

     The php.ini location can be defined using a number of methods. The most likely is the PHPRC environment variable. Does this variable name ring any bells?

  • User991473312 posted

     well what i did was started over

    i made a new website  thing  called guestbook and application pool was called guestbook

     and its using my default fasttocgi but its pointed to the C:\phpnonthread   location but when i update my phpinfo  it still points to c:\php  even if i do a forced refresh


    Wednesday, December 17, 2008 5:25 PM
  • User991473312 posted

     PHPRC environment variable  doesnt ring a bell  basiclly all i know since i just playing around with win2008 server is

    i install win2008  then i install the cgi php etc  then i install the php software then i configure the handlers to have fasttocgi  and thats all i know

     The problems you are experiencing now is exactly the reason why PHP upgrade advice shouldn't be handed out on a whim as it is not a trivial task for an inexpeirneced user. There are many, many places you can get caught, and it is often quite hard to troubleshoot without being infront of the console (or having an RDP session).

    Could you open a command prompt and type "echo %PHPRC%" (without the "" obviously) and press enter? If you are returned a value of C:\php then this should be pretty easy, if not we'll need to take a look at your IIS 7 config files.

    Unfortunately I have to go in a few minutes, but I do have one hand left to play which should trump everything with any luck. Follow these steps;

    1) Open IIS manager and select your site.

    2) Click on the "handler mappings" icon and  double click on your PHP FastCGI mapping.

    3) Change the "executable" path so it reads x:\path\to\php-cgi.exe|-c x:\path\to\php.ini\

     In your case it will be something like "C:\PHPNonThread\php-cgi.exe|-c C:\PHPNonThread\"

     This -c option should have a higher prioirity than anything else, so you should see your loaded php.ini path change once you've done this and saved. You'll also need to edit a few IIS specific settings in php.ini, but just do a search for IIS and you should find them.

     Only have a few minutes. Just checked and it seems to be working up until the point of submission, which indicates a permission issue. Be sure that your IIS user account has NTFS modify permissions to the flatfile the guestbook needs to write to. Pretty sure it will be in their install instructions...
