We are moving a client from their existing web hosting to their own server.  I spun up a Server 2012 R2 server and installed IIS.  I published a test web site there and everything is fine.

Now I have received the content from the old hosting provider and I see it is php.

I uploaded the content and tried to hit index.php and I'm getting a 500 error telling me that there is a problem with the resource I am trying to reach.

How can I get this uploaded php content to run on my IIS server in 2012 R2?

I did download the Web Platform installer and installed php, but that didn't make a difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank

Cliff

Essentially there are a steps to getting PHP to run on Windows:

1. Install FastCGI in IIS
2. Install PHP
3. Verify install
4. Configure PHP
5. Enable site to use PHP
