    PHP to work with IIS 6 in 64bit Windows Server 2003

    I am a Windows systems admin who has very little experience with PHP beyond the basic install and ini file.

    I am trying to make PHP 5 work inside a Windows Server 2003 x64 server using IIS6 and just cannot seem to get there. The walkthroughs I have found have all proven ineffective.

    I wonder if anyone here has any experience or tips they can send me. I am reading reading reading, which is always a good thing, but a push in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Could you please advise me if this is possible?

    Many Thanks
    Matt Gibson

    Windows Server 2008 comes with built in support... assuming that's an option.

    PHP in IIS6 does work fine. It shouldn't make any difference whether Windows is 32bit or 64bit. There are lots of guides available to talk you through it!

    But that's the only difference, I've set-up all this before on our old server. I've installed a new server running Exchange 2007 & IIS6 but i can for the life of me get it to work.

    Followed all the on-line walk-through's step by step!!

    Any suggestions would be great?

    not sure if its safe to do this but couldn't you just use WAMP ?

    http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php

    Not sure if you wanna do that on a server though ?

    If you check in the event viewer ( administrative tools --> event viewer ) are there any errors relating to IIS or PHP or anything ?

    If so whats the event ID and description ?

    IIS7 is much easier to install PHP and get it working....
