I need some good instructions on how to do this install. I do not want to use the installer, because I've never had any luck with it.
I also will need to install mysql and phpmyadmin, so reccomended version and instructions for that is appreciated.
I was also asked to make sure that PHP has GD 2.x and spell compiled for IIS. I don't know if these are built in, or seperate libaries, so please advise.
