The WPI installation hangs on the KB980363 FastCGI mudule install step. I am trying to install it on Windows server 2008 Standard 32bit version. I can install the KB980363 update manually but then my IIS 7.0 crashes and reports the HTTP 503 error. I tried to start the WordPress install through WPI while the server was down and then it hang on the nextr step as well (URL rewrite). I uninstalled the KB980363 update and the IIS resumed working normally.
Any ideas how can I get around this issue?
I am trying to install WordPress without installing MySQL and PHP first. Should I install MySQL and PHP first and then run WP installation?
