php upgrade issue

Hi, I'm running Windows 2000 with IIS and php 5.2.6 fast/cgi and an older server had php 5.2.0.  So, I decided to upgrade it by running the 5.2.6 installer.

Now, the php pages simply display as text, rather than running.
I uninstalled 5.2.0, then 5.2.6, the reinstalled but nothing happens

How do I fix this?

Are you sure it did an in-place upgrade?
It sounds like it might have just installed the new version, in which case it would have over written any modified configuration files that you had out there ... like the php.ini

If the servers are the same with the same applications then check the configuration files associated with php and make sure they are the same.

Have you restarted IIS (or even the computer)?  Can IIS work with an ASP page?  Is it showing basic html web pages?
Where did you get the install for the 5.26 version and which options did you choose as you did the install?
It is the "older" server that is having the problem, right?  The other works still.  I should probably find out for sure what the OS is on that server and confirm IIS is installed and working.  Please response on this and clarify it.

If you answered "yes" to b0lsc0tt's first three questions, check the ISAPI filter extensions list.  Make sure PHP is listed there, and that it is pointing at the 5.2.6 exe.

Why the B grade?  If it was a mistake then please just let us know since those are easy to fix.  If you still need help with this then post a response instead of closing the question.  We will be glad to provide more info and help.  If you have a question about grading on EE then just let me know.
Since you never posted a response it would seem the comments you accepted were all you needed for an answer.  If that is the case then an  A grade is what should be awarded.  It is best to always give the experts a chance to earn the A grade; they can usually provide more than what you get in the first comments.
