Overview

This RFC updates MapGuide to use PHP FastCGI now that FastCGI is offically supported by Microsoft for IIS.

Link to Microsoft's site on FastCGI for IIS: http://www.iis.net/download/fastcgi

Motivation

Offical support for the PHP ISAPI module has been dropped from PHP 5.3. We are planning to move to PHP 5.3 and so we need to stop using the unsupported PHP ISAPI module. This comes at a good time because Microsoft is now offically supporting FastCGI.

Proposed Solution

Upgrade to use PHP FastCGI under IIS.

Implications

The unsupported PHP ISAPI module for IIS will be dropped.

Test Plan

Build/Run on Windows.

Funding/Resources

Supplied by Autodesk.
