Installing PHP on XP for use with IIS 5

1 New Member
To All,

I would like to install PHP on XP Pro w/ IIS 5. I have IIS running and want to test some PHP based software I just purchased. The goal is to have my "website" totally running on my laptop before I migrate it to my real website. To be totally honest, I don't want to learn anything about PHP - I just want to test my software.

I have D/L'd the manual install of PHP (from www.php.net) and gave up - way to involved for what I want to do. I D/L'd the "Installer" version and it didn't work either (made some mention re. IUSR_Machinenam e) but once again, I got far too much on my plate to figure this issue out.

What I am looking for is an installer (or a complete, straightforward install script) so that I run it and within 5 minutes I have PHP in my IIS environment up and running.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated ..

Thanks in advance,

I don't believe that what you want exists.

Have you read these 2 pages (and the comments following)



Took me about 20 minutes and basically explains exactly what you need to do. I recon it would take probably another 30 minutes - 1 hour to follow the documented procedure.

One of my development PC's died, and I need to have legacy VS and VS.Net installed at the same time. On the now dead PC, I had VS6 installed prior to installing VS.Net. This worked just fine. On my working PC, I already have VS.Net installed, but not VS6. My question, will installing the older VS6 with VS.Net already installed give me problems with VS.Net. Or should I first remove the VS.Net, install VS6, then re-install VS.Net? Gerald

Hi I have an app that uses the a2K run-time. I have just discovered that installing this app breaks an access2003 installation causing the user to have to repair the installation using the original installation CD.

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
