OK i feel really stupid, here is what i did-

I instlled IIS, php and mysql on my laptop as i am creating intranet for my company. All was going so well, i could look at pages the Mysql worked.  i could access pages via http://localhost and my computer nme as well.  All i needed was to access them from other machines here as well.  I played with some settings in IIS manager under Properties->Directory Security->Edit->Authenticated access (an post i found here mentioned the settings needed to be changed)

then i checked our server here for dns settings. It allready had A hosts pointing to my machine so i figured i must have done it. Well when i try to access my pges now all i get is

The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with a program on the page you are trying to reach, and the page cannot be displayed.


Please try the following:

Open the localhost home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

HTTP 403.1 Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden
Internet Information Services


Please help. I need to know what i would have changed to cuase this and how to correct it

two things to try:

1.  check that script and/or execute is allowed: right click web site in IIS admin->properties->home directory->select script and/or executables for 'execute permissions'.
2.  check the anonymous user has rights to your files (including php binaries): right click web site->properties->security->authentication->edit->enable anonymous - see what is the user listed there, now open the relevant folder/s in windows explorer, then right click them and make sure that this user has read and execute permission.
