You can get PHP 5.6 on Windows.

If you want the Windows installer (v5.3.5)

MySQL 5.6.15 on Windows
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/

There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to ever use the latest versions.

There is one detail that you must consider about MySQL.  PHP is doing away with support for the MySQL extension (warning labels all over the function reference).  The data base will still be usable, but there may be some changes required in your scripts.  Please see this article for what you must do to keep your PHP scripts running as you upgrade.

Thanks for the information.

So, it appears that PHP and MySQL are supported on Windows Server 2012.
