@Simon_eQ Google for that error and you would find out that you need to install the VS C++ 2012 runtime: microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679

@Simon_eQ So update your question with what you ahave tried and where you got stuck. Not "I read this page and it does not work" but "I downloaded X from ..., extracted it to ..., ran the installer, navigated to ... in Explorer, but [problem]"

@Simon_eQ Terminal? What OS are you using? A Linux distribution? Or Windows? Try to read the manual pages on installation.

comment Tracking down memory issues affecting a website
@Anonymous From wiki.nginx.org/Faq: How do you pronounce "Nginx"? The correct pronunciation sounds like: "engine-ex". (Next question: "What does that mean?" - We don't know, exactly.)

comment 404 crawl error for mailto:info@mydoamin.co.uk in Google Webmaster Tools
I suggest to use <a href="mailto:info@example.com">info@example.com</a>. mailto:info@example.com is not a valid e-mail address, mailto: is the protocol part.

comment PHP permissions
umad? 655 = read+write for owner, read+execute for others. Bad Idea(tm) Whether the files are owned by apache or not depends on the purpose of the files. For a static website, it's better that the files are not writable to avoid attacks in case a hole is found in the code.

comment PHP permissions
You need to provide more details, how are you uploading your files? (SSH/SFTP, FTP, controlpanel?, ...) You mentioned ownership, do you have root access to the box? What user is Apache running? If possible, what distro are you using? See also webmasters.stackexchange.com/q/13658/6597

comment Things we can do with VPS Packages
Managed or unmanaged? If unmanaged, be sure to do some research first. You won't be the first who think that firewalls are superfluous and soon rooted afterwards.

comment What is the best free hosting provider for my site?
000webhost shuts your website down periodically to check for "potentially unwanted content" (for them), not recommended.

comment When creating a website, what permissions and directory structure?
Giving www-data rwx on directories allows www-data to read, write and descend into directories. If www-data is the owner, it'll be able to change the file permissions as well. If www-data does not need write access, you'd better revoke it to r-x (principle of least privilege). Processes run under an user which are a member of one ore more groups. If a file is not owned by the user of that process or if the process user is not a member of the group of the file, it'll get the permissions of "Other" (a.k.a. "world").

comment Can PHP Site be hosted on Windows Hosting?
Not to forget that windows uses \ as path separator which is an escape character in PHP.

comment When creating a website, what permissions and directory structure?
@Dan Simmons: CMS'es (and PHP scripts) write to the directories as www-data, the files will be owned by www-data with group www-data (since the process runs under that group). Your SSH user will create files/directories owned by your_ssh_user_here. Without the setgid bit, these files will have the group your_ssh_user_here. With no read permissions for the other, PHP and nginx won't be able to access the files/directories. The setgid bit is inherited by the directories beneath (but can be removed).

Please provide more details: will you host more websites on a server? How are you uploading files?
