  • How to Fix Fast CGI ERROR?

    I am getting the following error when I try to install vBulletin version 3.8 for the first time, I am on a server at and it is php enabled.

    The FastCGI Handler was unable to process the request.

    Error Details:

    * The FastCGI process exceeded configured activity timeout
    * Error Number: 258 (0x80070102).
    * Error Description: The wait operation timed out.

    HTTP Error 500 - Server Error.
    Internet Information Services (IIS)

    Does anyone know how to fix this?
