Installing PHP on IIS 5 Win XP

Postby netet2k » Tue Aug 28, 2012 6:55 am

I need instructions on how to manually install PHP and configure IIS5 to work with it. I came across the following steps but I don't find the dll file [php5isapi.dll] mentioned in step "b" of the instructions.

Configure IIS to use PHP.

1. Open IIS

2. Under Home Directory: Set “Execute Permissions” to “Scripts Only”

3. Click on configuration..

a. Click Add

b. Set “executable” to C:\PHP\php5isapi.dll

c. Set “extension” to .php (don’t forget to include the . )

I need assistance.

For most people, there is no need to manually install IIS when working with PHP. IIS does support PHP to some extent.

Most people download a software like WAMP server when working with PHP. Its bundled with Windows Apache server, MySQL and PHP.

I have followed this tutorial when I used WinXP+IIS5.1 for web development and I strongly recommend it:

Installing PHP 5 on IIS 5.1/IIS 6.0 with FastCGI

As a side note, do not use the ISAPI DLLs versions of PHP. They are not shipped anymore.
