    Installing Moodle - Windows 2003 x64

    Has anyone attempted installing moodle on Windows Server 2003 x64?

    I have been on google all morning and not found any suggestions. On option would be to tell IIS 6 to run as x32 but I don't want to do this as I have exchange 2007 running on the same machine.

    Anybody else attempted this?

    Cheers
    Matt

    Use the latest moodle.

    Install IIS on the server
    Install MYSQL & GUI tools
    Install PHP - PHP on IIS7 : The Official Microsoft IIS Site
    put the moodle files on the box
    setup DB and it was away

    @MattGibson:

    Put it on a linux box it will save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
    Which distros you may ask, well we use Ubuntu here but i know other people use Centos but read up on the Moodle website.

    Moodle.org: open-source community-based tools for learning

    @MattGibson:

    If going down Linux route with Moodle install it can be x64 but why would you want to install windows as x32 if you have x64 hardware architecture?
