Installing PHP

Hi,

I installed PHP using the installer found on PHP.net.  However I am unable to pull up any PHP pages.  

The installer seemed almost too easy.  Is there something anyone can think of that I'm missing?

Thanks!

Do yo mean the installer that says, "No external extensions included, get them from the zip and PECL downloads above, and install manually"?

So, did you install them manually from the zip?

Hmm, I did not.  I was under the impression that the installer would automatically configure the server to be able to run anything with a .php extension.

I downloaded the pecl modules, but I'm not certain which I need to install.

Should I remove and try to reinstall with what appears to be the full package?

This is my first plunge into running my own server... so all of your feedback is quite helpful.  Thanks for your help!

I would use the zip package and not the installer... see http://www.peterguy.com/php/install_IIS6.html for a good how-to.
