Hi All
Tried to install PHP 4.3.5, using its own installer or whatever the latest
stable version is on
www.php.net. When I install it, it says:
"error trying to access local web service. You need to configure IIS
manually via management console". After this, it says "installation
successfull"...A bit strange...
Why does this error occur? How do I configure IIS using console? Further
more, this stuff seems awfully complex - all you need for C/C++ is a
compiler/builder. I just wanna try and write some PHP scripts and use some
free ones. Any ideas?
George

You again. 8)

The "management console" is the MMC plugin for configuring IIS (whose
location moves about dependent on the OS running it). Just installing PHP
isn't sufficient to get IIS to parse PHP correctly in this case, so you need
to tell it how to treat *.php files manually. That's something else you can
research, I can't recall it offhand and I'm not certain this is the forum
for it.
