I'm trying to install PHP on our public Web Server (Windows Server 2008 32-bit). I was told by a friend to make sure I do a manual install because running the Web Installer will mess up IIS, which is what I'm trying to avoid.
To start, I thought I would attempt doing this on our development server, which is running 2008 R2 64-bit. Even though I was told Microsoft Web Platform would work on this machine, I wanted to do it manually to simulate what I would need to do on the public server.
I found PHP's official documentation (http://php.net/manual/en/install.windows.iis7.php
) and followed each step: Unpacked the PHP files to C:\php and configured php.ini. But when I go to test if PHP works from the command prompt, I type in "php -info" and get "Could not open input file: o".
So I figured that I had missed something, deleted my edited php.ini file and extracted a fresh copy, but I'm still getting the same error.
I tried Googling the error, but found little help. I'm hoping someone might have some advice?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
