SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In an application, you are using the Hostable Web Core (HWC) functionality of Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 to load the IIS core.
  • This application uses the FastCGI module to host non-ASP.NET applications such as PHP, Ruby, Perl, and Python applications.
  • The process that hosts the application that is running HWC is part of a Microsoft Windows job object.
In this scenario, the FastCGI module does not work. Therefore, the non-ASP.NET applications do not run as expected.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the FastCGI module keeps child FastCGI processes in job objects. This design makes sure that all the child FastCGI processes are terminated when a worker process ends. However, job objects cannot be nested in Windows. Therefore, if the application that is using HWC is part of a job object, the FastCGI module functionality will not work when you try to run the FastCGI module inside the application.
