Are there any issues with installing PHP along with ASP.NET?

P: n/a
Hello,

I have a Windows 2003 Server machine, running the latest IIS. I have
been asked to add a Wordpress blog to a site, but this is only available
as a PHP. Are there any issues with installing PHP on the machine?
Anything at all, like stability, security, etc? Also, is it
straightforward, or are there problems I will have to sort out?

Any comments welcome. TIA

None I can think of. PHP install onto IIS is easy, and as secure as your
IIS server is.

Thanks. I've never looked at it before, so was a little wary. I know
some of these platforms have security issues. Glad to hear this isn't
one!

Hi, Alan.

You might want to consider installing Phalanger.

http://www.codeplex.com/Phalanger/Re...ReleaseId=3375

With Phalanger, you can use PHP as a native .NET language,
just like you use C# and VB.NET.

I've made a few tests with it...and all has gone well.

It integrates nicely with VS 2005 SP1 (required).

I'm not an experienced PHP developer, so I can't
guarantee that *everything* will go well, but it's worth a try.

Juan,

Thanks for the link. I'm not intending to develop in PHP myself, I am
quite happy with C#. I was mainly interested in PHP so I could run
Wordpress.

However, being a developer, I can't resist the temptation to have a go
at PHP for the fun of it, so I guess I can blame you if I don't get any
work done this afternoon!!

That's actually well worth knowing.

So next time my wife starts hassling me at midnight that I ought to
switch off the machine, I can blame Juan. Fantastic!
