Hi all.

I have a Win 8 64 bit machine with xampp installed on and all is ok. Now I need to run some php application on IIS so I installed IIS and the installation is okay. I configured IIS to run on port 8080 so to don't have problems with Apache port 80. But what I need is to run php on both servers. There is a way to share Php installation? Or what I have to do to run php in IIS also?

Thanks in advance
Marco

Typically developers use IIS for asp programming and apache for php programming. In your case you just want to test it in both?? Better to get resources about from iis.net see reference links below:
http://php.iis.net/
http://www.iis.net/learn/application-frameworks/running-php-applications-on-iis
and here you can get configuration for windows server 2012 and windows 8

What I want to know if there is a way to use my php installation, running in Apache, in IIS without installing another php from scratch.
Maybe it's convenient uninstall xampp and install php, mysql and  apache manually: I yet did it following Kevin Yank's guide and it's not so difficult as I read around the web.
But before to do it, I wish to know if, once done that, I can use some trick to use the same php (and maybe mydql) in boths servers adjusting or commenting some lines or so...

Get the installer from http://www.php.net/ but also get the zip (manual) version and go ahead with the windows installation.
Copy the C:\PHP\php.ini-dist file to C:\Windows\ and rename it php.ini
Copy the zip contents to the php folder which should be c:/php (you are overwriting the XAMPP installation
If I have remembered everything you should now have PHP working in IIS and XAMPP

Hi Cathal.
Please, let me understand: now I have php in C:\xampp\php so do I have to extract the php zip to c:\xampp\php?

Do I have to leave the destination direcotries of the installer how they are?

Thx

No, do Not use the PHP from XAMPP.  Install a fresh version of PHP for Windows in it's Own directory.  IIS and Apache require different settings for PHP and you can't share them.  On my machine that has both web servers, I use the 'Non Thread Safe' version for IIS and the 'Thread Safe' version for Apache.
