IIS / PHP / FastCGI unexpected exit

Hello,

I have looked all over for a way to address this issue with FastCGI unexpectedly terminating while running the vBulletin3->phpBB3 conversion. Due to host provider restrictions, I have to run the conversion and import the data there.

I have tried disabling FastCGI for PHP to use CGI instead, but CGI errors out with a 502.2 error due to "incomplete headers" (dead-end).

The PHP error log is empty. Any ideas on what else to check for to isolate the problem and find a solution?

Does PHP error out straight away, or does it take a while? What are the contents of your php.ini file?

Did you ever resolve this issue? I am experiencing something similar and cannot see what is causing it.

It is unlikely that you'll be able to accurately pinpoint the cause from this error alone. In addition to your IIS failed request tracing you should also enable your PHP log in as verbose a mode you can as well as your MySQL error log.

A combination of these usually will give your a clearer picture of where to target your investigations.
