PHP Manual Installation

They are saying in the manual that the PHP ZIP package for php 5.3.0 you download contains the following files which are required for installing:

php5isapi.dll
php.ini-dist
php.ini-recommended

But I don't have these files in the zip package I download.
Instead I have these:
php5nsapi.dll
php.ini-development
php.ini-production

Can I download these the previous files separately from net? Will it work?

I have downloaded php5isapi.dll separately and have used php.ini-development as php.ini and performed the other steps in the manual.

I stopped the IIS by using:
net stop iisadmin

But when I start the IIS again by using:
net start w3svc

I get an error which is shown in the attached screenshot:

The least i can tell you is that you dont have to get another php.ini.

Just rename one of the following files:

php.ini-development => If your running your server at home, not for production
php.ini-production => If your running a production server (not likely)

So in your case: rename php.ini-development  to php.ini and see what happens

Just read the question carefully before posting comments.
I have done that only (Changed php.ini-development to php.ini)

The package I downloaded had the files that were different from the ones written in the manual specification on the php.net site.

I downloaded a little older version of the package and it installed properly and everything was working from then on.

Thanks all for your help.
