Editing applicationHost.config on 64-bit Windows

I’m coming up to speed on IIS7 on Windows Server 2008 R2.  There is a lot to like, but there is also a lot to learn.  One of the things that’s interesting about R2 is that there is no 32-bit version, so I’m finally running 64-bit Windows.  This doesn’t come without its problems. One of […]

Troubleshooting on IIS7

I’ve been setting up WordPress on Windows Server 2008 R2 lately and as part of trying to understand the issues fully – by installing, uninstalling, installing, etc., the last time through I forgot to create the database and the SQL user for WordPress.

PHP Failure Due To Missing Timezone

I’ve been working on installing PHP 5.3.0 on a new server running Windows Server 2008 R2 and encountered a problem I hadn’t run into before.  After installing PHP following the instructions I published here (FastCGI is supported natively by W2K8 R2 so I didn’t need to do anything to use that), the following message was […]

High IIS CPU Usage

The IIS processes on my web server (w3wp.exe) have been experiencing high CPU usage lately, but only for one of my app pools – the one for my main WordPress sites.  I use two ISAPI DLLs – PHP5 and Ionics Isapi Rewriter – but I am also currently using an older version of WordPress.  I did a […]
