    I have had nothing but trouble with PHP and IIS, the easiest and best way is to grab PHP triad.

    Just a simple install and you have PHP, mySQl and apache, it really is a breeze.

    would have to agree with waddy, I've heard nothing but complaints/problems when trying to install PHP under IIS. Give PHPtriad a go and you will have better luck.
     
  5. I was looking for a particular site that had really good instructions on how to do this but I could not find it. This one looks pretty close though. I have not done a lot with PHP in windows using IIS so I dont know if there are the problems like the others said but hopefully this helps. Good Luck!

    That's the manual installation, the hard way. If you use the installers mentioned above, you just run the installer and, bam, you're good to go.
