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.

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.

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