Host existing Wordpress on IIS

I am moving an existing Wordpress web site that was on Unix to another server that has IIS 7 and windows 2008 server OS.

I configured the IIS to host PHP pages so it now looks like this if you click the link:

Www.webit-client216.com

However something still isn't right as it the directory, but the web site doesn't run normally. Any ideas how I can fix this.  It also uses MySQL DBs but I don't think I have that hooked up right yet.

Thanks!

This isn't a Wordpress issue.  Your PHP is not configured correctly on IIS and the default file list doesn't have index.php in it.

Does the site now launch immediately into a 404 error?

The site is on  www.webit-client216.com

When the link is clicked that is what I get.

I don't get a 404 error I get the directory listing

If you click on any PHP file from the directory listing, you get a 404 error.

This indicates two things:

1) index.php is still not a default file

2) PHP is still not configured properly (probably)

Not that it matters, but why are you moving to an IIS environment if you don't have the experience configuring it to serve PHP and MySQL?

I'm sure it is too, just not sure what you have done to this point or how so it makes it almost impossible to help you.  

If you aren't too far down the configuration road, I would suggest removing both PHP and MySQL from the server and starting over:
