Hi,

I am tring to install the latest version of PHP on IIS/windows and when I try and open my phpinfo file I just get a download dialogue box. I think this may be a permissions problem. Any ideas?

no, this is just a configuration of IIS, see here for the step:

That seems to work except that the page hangs for ages with 'website found..waiting for repy' at the bottom.

Ther are two php exe files in my installation


php.exe

php-win.exe

and also

php-cgi.exe


Thanks,

Ross

If you're using Windows 2003 Server, you may try refer to this:

http://www.visualwin.com/PHP-ISAPI/
http://www.visualwin.com/PHP/

You can also try Allow the "All Unknown ISAPI Extensions" on the "Web Service Extensions" if above not working.

hope this helps too.

yes - have you tried using the PHP installer that will configure IIS for you??

http://phplens.com/phpeverywhere/easywindows

this is a manual for installing PHP on windows: http://uk.php.net/install.windows

http://www.php.net/downloads.php

and if on IIS6 with window server 2003, give this a read: http://www.peterguy.com/php/install_IIS6.html

i would still give the PHP installer a go. like i said it will automatically configure IIS for you.  all you need is your index.php file with <?=phpinfo();?> in it to test your configuration...

good luck!
