    Joomla & IIS6

    Struggling to get Joomla working with iis6, something about mysql not being detected.

    Would I be better using WAMP and if so is there anyway of running iis6 and wamp together, currently iis6 is publishing my exchange owa.

    Or can wamp be made to publish owa?

    ta

    Si

    It's messy doing anything with IIS on a box used for Exchange OWA.

    I would recommend either finding another server or virtualising a LAMP server - you could run this on your exchange box with VMWare Server or Virtualbox.

    I have Joomla 1 running on IIS 6 with no problems at all.

    What is the exact problem your getting?

    You can run Apache (as part of WAMP) and IIS together just make sure they use different ports. Its also not that hard to install MySQL & PHP with IIS.

    As said before you could run a VM with LAMP (eg Ubuntu Server) or you could use another machine if you have any spare with either LAMP or Server 2003/08.

    So either have another go at using IIS (being careful not to muck up OWA) or if you don't care about the website having a different port use WAMP & IIS. If you want to learn LAMP use a VM or different server.

    My issue with IIS6 and Joomla is it doesn't recognise that mysql is installed. On the Pre installation check is has a Red NO

    I have removed and reinstalled mysql but to no avail.

    Any isea's ?

    Server 2003 sp2 btw

    EDIT*********

    Looks like I need the php path in the server variables, have to wait till lunch before I can reboot server

    use something like wamp or lamp as test and then you can compile both apache, mysql and php to run on a server for a live production site.

    Back to drawing board, rebooted server and still no Mysql in the Joomla install prerequisites
    Mysql Administrator shows service as running, not sure what I have missed.

    Another thing that didn't work for me was the phpinfo.php test file, gave me Error 500 internal server error, but it allows me to get to the Joomla install webpages.

    Any idea's before I give up (again)

    i would say that your server is not configured properly for php
