    ASP classic and PHP on same IIS?


    Hi

    Probably a silly question but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere...

    Is it possible to run ASP classic and PHP on IIS 7 at the same time?

    Iím an ASP developer looking to get into using more PHP and want them both set up on the same machine so I can build sites in both environments on the same machine (At different times!) .
    If it is possible, can some one point me to a tutorial or recommend some way of adding PHP to the IIS (ASP is already set up ok)
    Thanks

    I assume you can with IIS7, you could easily have both php and asp on the same IIS server in earlier IIS versions.

    I added php to IIS6 a few years ago, I just followed the manual isapi installation instructions that came with the php download. Microsoft is supposed to be adding some native php support I think.

    afaik, the current desired mode for php is to use fast-cgi.

    Hello,

    You could install PHP without the problem and to have both ASP and PHP sites on the same server. Use FastCGI for better performance.
