What I'm trying to do:
Setup a database on my webserver that communicates via PHP.
Where I'm at: I've setup IIS 5.0 on my advanced server 2000 home server.  I've downloaded and installed mysql 5.0.  I've downloaded and installed PHP 5.2.6.

I try to run a test phpinfo() page at the end of my local host, and can't see anything.  I have no idea how to integrate PHP 5.2.6 with IIS 5.0 on my server.  Where do I go from here?  I am so tired of trying to figure this stuff out until 4 am, it's frustrating beyond all belief.  Please help!

Hi,

Try this:
--------------------------------
Configure IIS to use PHP
--------------------------------

When you open IIS Manager, it should connect to the local computer automatically.
Expand the local computer in the left pane
Click on "Web Service Extensions" in the left pane
In the right pane, click the blue underlined text, "Add a new Web service extension..."
Enter "PHP ISAPI Extension" as the "Extension name"
Click the "Add..." button and browse to the php5isapi.dll file in your PHP install folder
Check the "Set extension status to Allowed" checkbox and click "OK"

--------------------------------
Add PHP file extention (.php)
--------------------------------

Expand the local computer in the left pane
Right-click on "Web Sites" in the left pane, then click "Properties" in the menu that pops up
Flip to the "Home Directory" tab
Click "Configuration"
Flip to the "Mappings" tab
Click "Add..."
Enter the full path to php5isapi.dll in the "Executable" textbox (Browse... to find it more easily if you need to)
Enter ".php" in the "Extension" textbox
Select radial button "Limit to", enter "GET,POST,HEAD"
Click "OK" all the way out

--------------------------------
Turn on scripting permissions
--------------------------------

Right-click on "Web Sites", goto Properties -> Home Directory.
Change the "Execute permissions" dropdown to "Scripts only".
