After upgrading PHP to 5.3.x on Windows IIS server Wordpress tasks Configure site application (instance_id = 123) on DS 456 fail with PHP errors like:

Last execution output   Destination host '' (#), IP '' : Provisioning request failed. Unspecified error [<response><errorContext description="Error 255(The extended attributes are inconsistent) at execute '$tmp$configure$batch$.bat' on server ''
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: bz2: Unable to initialize module
Module compiled with module API=20090626, debug=0, thread-safety=0
PHP compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=1
These options need to match
in Unknown on line 0
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in C:\CustomerData\webspaces\webspace_00123456\siteapps\WordPress-123\scripts\db-util.php on line 66" code="0x80004005" executeSeqNo="4"><errorSource namespace="PEMUtils" procedure="RemoteExec"/></errorContext></response>]


Incorrect path to PHP binaries is used.


Check where old and new versions of PHP are installed (probably new version was installed incorrectly):

  1. Check path to PHP folder in PHP package properties in OA (click hardware node where the webspace is located and switch to Packages > PHP > Package properties)
  2. Check if php.exe -v works in the same way from this folder and from any other folder on Windows server.
  3. If old PHP is still used, make the backup of old PHP folder and copy new files there.
  4. Resubmit the failed task.
