Handler "PHP55_via_FastCGI" has a bad module "FastCgiModule" in its module list

Trying to get a PHP app working on Windows Server 2012, I got the following error message

“HTTP Error 500.21 - Internal Server Error

Handler "PHP55_via_FastCGI" has a bad module "FastCgiModule" in its module list”

I’d installed PHP via the IIS Web Installer but had failed to do one more thing, enable CGI in ‘Add Roles and Features’ in Server Manager, under Web server (IIS)/Web Server/Application Development. After enabling that, everything sprang to life
