When running PHP using the FPM support, it doesn't appear to process the 
script_filename environmental variable passed by Apache (using mod_proxy_fcgi).  
This is probably related to #54152

Running a tool that monitors file access the following path is checked:


Don't fully understand how PHP handles this but tried setting 
APACHE_PROXY_FCGI_PREFIX to various different values by using:
SetEnv APACHE_PROXY_FCGI_PREFIX "proxy:fcgi:\\" the Apache configuration file.  But it didn't appear to have any effect.

Test script:
Apache conf:
ProxyPass / fcgi://

PHP startup:
c:\php54\php-cgi.exe -b -c c:\php54\php.ini

Expected result:

Actual result:

There is no FPM on windows.

There seems to be, I have FPM working fine with the nginx Windows port and PHP 

Here's an example of the config I used for nginx:
location ~ \.php$ {
  root           html;
  fastcgi_index  index.php;
  fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  c:/nginx-1.2.1/html/$fastcgi_script_name;
  include        fastcgi_params;

Plus the "-b IP:Port" argument is there... but I didn't see any new php-cgi 
processes created to handle requests.

You use c:\php54\php-cgi.exe which runs clearly in FastCGI mode. No FPM is going under Win as it uses libevent (saw some people playing with cygwin, but that's tricky stuff anyway). This looks more like a configuration issue in your apache after all.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up.  That explains the fact that there aren't any 
extra php processes being launched.  Doesn't explain the issue with no input file 
being specified as I'd have though #54152 would have fixed the path issue of 
Apache not passing SCRIPT_FILENAME correctly.

Shame about libevent holding FPM back on Windows, maybe the work being done with 
libuv could be of use?

btw I see you're using apache 2.4, do you have the same error with apache 2.2?
 [2012-06-29 07:49 UTC] dave at yougeezer dot co dot uk
Can't reproduce the same set up on Apache 2.2 as mod_proxy_fcgi only came with 
2.3+.  Should we close this issue then, since FPM isn't currently available for 
Windows?  Or are you still thinking it's a probably with the FastCGI code that 
handles Apache's wrongness?

I think I'll put in a feature request for FPM on Windows.

Patch exists and three months later the bug is still open :(.

FPM doesn't exist on windows.
