Trouble installing PHP5 with IIS

Hey all,

I just tried installing PHP5 under IIS for the first time, but I can't
seem to get the php.exe to work.

I unzipped the package, and pointed the IIS .php 'executable'
attribute over to php.exe in the PHP5 folder, but when I then call up
a .php page, it just stalls.

If I then point the IIS .php executable over to php.exe in the
PHP4.3.6 folder, no problem.

Also, back in PHP5, when I point the IIS .php executable over to
php-cgi.exe or php5isapi.dll, I do get a response. But my
understanding is that php.exe is the one to shoot for.

Amy I totally missing something stupid? Many thanks for any help!

A few weeks ago, i tried to install php5 on iis6
(not sure on the names anymore) phpts.lib and phpisapi.dll into
c:\windows\system and configured iis as described in the manual and
everything worked fine....

The install docs suggest php.exe, and that's what I've always used
with PHP4.x setups.

Is anybody using php.exe on IIS? It just stalls when I try it.

php-cgi.exe and php5isapi.dll seem to work, but not php.exe.

Any ideas? Thanks!

One last question: if this group is really more about PHP language
issues, can anybody suggest good places to go for stuff like
installation issues?

Many thanks,
