Solution: Win 2003-IIS6 & PHP 5.2 - for - Error "The specified procedure could not be found"

I was able to find the simple solution to the issue IIS6 & PHP 5.2. It seems like I was focusing too much on the online help solutions, posted by others rather than to, try to figure out how to solve it best.

The documents avalaible online are, mostly suggesting the older php4isapi.dll or php5isapi.dll rather than to utilize WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\fcgiext.dll file

To solve the issue regarding "The specified procedure could not be found." error all you have to do is in
IIS6 >> Websites (select) "Properties"
Properties >> "Home" tab and then "Configuration" button and Tab "Mappings".

Under mappings update the .php extension dll to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\fcgiext.dll"

This should solve the issue with the new settings, it's very painful to read over so many early php5 versions suggestions which does not talk about this, only few handful of recent blogs talk about the update and those are not the first results on search engines at least not at till when i was doing research till today.

Hope it helps you out, in installing php 5.2 on iis6 on windows 2003.
Good luck.

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…

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.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15302080/fastcgi-500-failure

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.

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Today on Jan 11, 2018, I have received the Grow with Google Scholarship.

I am really excited because, previously I had joined Udacity to complete a Nano Degree, but due to price and family priorities, I had to abandon that goal.

Today, I feel like I am getting a second chance to give it another shot to completing my Nano Degree.
