Manual installation of PHP
Posted on 2009-07-09
I have read the instructions in the PHP manual to set up php manually.
There are many problems:
First when i download the zip file, the extracted contents does not contain php5isapi.dll file which needs to be added in the ISAPI extension filters.
Second I am stuck up in the following line in manual:
PHP may be installed as a CGI binary, or with the ISAPI module. In either case, you need to start the Microsoft Management Console (may appear as 'Internet Services Manager', either in your Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack branch or the Control Panel=>Administrative Tools under Windows 2000/XP). Then right click on your Web server node (this will most probably appear as 'Default Web Server'), and select 'Properties'.
I think I need to right click IIS and then Properties. Am I right? or something else?
Last when I click on HomeDirectory and then click on Configuration and then click on Add to Add/Edit Application Extension Mapping and then select the php5isapi.dll file and fill up the extension as .php,
Then the OK button is disabled and I cannot proceed.
