PHP5 and PECL Modules on IIS

Hi guys,

I am having some issues getting the PHP5 PECL Modules installed on my laptop (with IIS), and need some help please. I have installed and setup PHP, which was quick and easy, I did it manually so I know all the settings, and set it up on ISAPI rather than CGI. I downloaded the PECL library, put it in it's own directory and then un-commented the lines with the functions I just installed, but on the phpinfo(); screen, I see no difference, could someone please help me out?

Cheers. :)

You put the library in the ext directory within your PHP directory.

If you look at the phpinfo() screen and look for


This will show you where your PECL extensions need to go.

Normally it is the ext directory within the PHP directory.

Sorry, I had to send my laptop off for repairs so I didn't get to test this out until now, and it works.
