Installing PHP on XP for use with IIS 5

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_Machinename) 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,

Jim

I don't believe that what you want exists.

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

http://uk2.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.manual.php

http://uk2.php.net/manual/en/install.windows.iis.php

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.
