    PHP on IIS/Win2k Server


    Hi all,
    Can anyone point me to a good resource on installing PHP on Win2k/IIS? Thanks in advance.

    Should be pretty straight forward. What type of issues are you encountering.

    just curious, but why would anyone want to do that. IIS and PHP. It seems to me that Apache is the only way to go with PHP.

    Apache on Win32 isn't much better IMHO, than IIS. Granted .... that's not saying much. To the best of my knowledge, the Apache foundation is still putting disclaimers in their Win32 httpd releases stating that Apache on Windoze shouldn't be used for anything more than development purposes.

    Windows, particularly of the NT and 9x/ME variety, is absolutely riddled with security problems. On top of that, Microsoft's insistence on keeping key APIs from other development teams means that they are privy to information Apache group is not, meaning at least IIS (in theory) should be able to take advantage of some things that Apache won't be able to (because of the undocumented APIs).

    As long as this is strictly development work, I don't see this as a big deal.

    I have our company intranet running in ASP/MSSQL. I also wanted to take advantage of a few apps written in PHP. So now I have the best of both worlds.

    The current 1.3 release of apache is fine for production use on Windows NT and Win2K. They have a disclaimer for Windows 98/ME since the way they handle the users. There is no security or ownership of files on Win98/ME. Due to that the system is vulnerable to a lot of security exploits and hence development only use is reccomended. From what Apache is saying, 2.0 is a lot better for Windows than 1.3 but its PHP module still needs a lot of work.
