I am attempting to uninstall PHP from IIS 6 and am having some difficulty. To install, I followed the guide at this URL:
I wasn't able to get it to work even after going through all the troubleshooting steps he listed. I assumed that I had missed a step somewhere along the line and spent the better part of a day trying to retrace my steps but couldn't find anything that would indicate that I did something wrong.
My thought was that I could uninstall and start fresh but I am running into a snag. I have removed almost everything but the PHP ISAPI filter from IIS. When I click remove, the filter seems to disappear. At this point, I put the PHP folder into the recycle bin and restart IIS. After restarting IIS, the PHP ISAPI filter re-appears and none of my non-PHP web sites work (Service Unreachable).
I restore the PHP folder and restart IIS and then all of my other websites work again. The problem is that I still have the PHP ISAPI filter in IIS. I'd like to get rid of this filter as I believe this is the last step I need to do in order to complete the uninstall. Once I have done this, I will carefully reinstall....but in the meantime.
Is there any way to remove this ISAPI filter for good? I appreciate your help!
