Incorrect executable path to PHP handler is set for the website in IIS.
Re-apply PHP settings in Plesk > Domains > PHP settings > Ok (without any changes):
As an alternative, or if the solution did not help, update the path in IIS directly:
Connect to the server using RDP.
Open IIS > Sites > example.com > Handler Mappings.
Double click on PHP-php handler and make sure that executable path is set properly.
It might look like
C:\Program Files (x86)\Plesk\Additional\PleskPHP54\php-cgi.exe. However, the path to Plesk directory and version of PHP may be different.
Make sure that there is no other handlers for
*php. Remove them if any.
