How do I determine which ISAPI extension I need to allow for PHP web pages?

I have set up a new web server on Microsoft Server 2003 with PHP and MySQL at the request of our web designer. I do not have much experience with PHP and when the web designer posted the new site he attempted to test it with a PHP info page. The page would fail with a 404 page not found error. I added some extensions and allowed them including the full path to php5isapi.dll. nothing worked until I allowed all unknown ISAPI Extensions. I do not want to leave all extensions allowed for security reasons, but I cannot seem to isolate the correct combination of extensions for the page to display without it.

Hi jwstock,

Should work, just make sure its using 8.3 names for path and file and not long ones.
Also, ensure no quote in the path.

Regards
Greg

I uninstalled PHP and re-installed it in the C:/ directory instead of Program files to take any 8.3 issues out, but it still only works when I allow all unknown ISAPI extensions.

I found the issue I used a PHP Windows installer instead of doing a manual install. I went back through the manual install steps and discovered the Application extension mapping for .php had  a ~ in it. I corrected the path and now it seems to be working.
