KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files.

We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working.

The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for.

I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into.

Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again?

Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

Thank you - Grow with Google and Udacity for Mobile Web Specialist Scholarships

It's such a great feeling after completing Mobile Web Specialist Nanodegree from Udacity, sponsored by Grow with Google.

When I applied for the scholarship, I wasn't looking for a new job but still I wanted to improve my understanding of web applications. I wasn't hundred percent sure that I will get the opportunity, but still I choose to apply.

I have to say I was surprised to have received the chance to compete in the first round; I was even more happy to learn that my nephew has also got selected in another scholarship program with Grow with Google.

I went on to complete the Phase 1 and then I got selected in Phase 2 as well. Developing web applications for 15+ years didn't help in making the challenges easy. Every project pushed my limits and made me learn so much more. It was really eye opener to learn about color contrast, web accessibility, image optimization and over all the best approach to delivery the content to the users browser.

I can't thank enough of…

PowerBI Enterprise App Embed Solution in PHP

I had a nightmare time trying to figure out a simple example for JavaScript API, for PowerBI embed solution using PHP programming language.

I hope developers post every single step solutions when possible as it's very nightmarish to figure out that which we don't know.

I hope following notes could be useful to some, and if I myself have forgotten to include any steps or the steps are no longer valid due to upgrades or software changes, please post it in comments and I will try to update the steps if possible or create a new blog and add a link to it in this blog post.
