..it doesn't work. if you just try running php you'll see for yourself it doesn't work. why do you want to run php when you have the original dynamic scripting language right there ready to use? i'm just joking about that (sort of) ;-)<BR>check this out:<BR>http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/99/21/index2a.html<BR>i didn't read this whole article, but it seems that you can install a php dll on a windows system and run php applications.<BR>try it out and let us know
try not to answer if you don't have the full facts<BR><BR>yes, you *can* run PHP alongside ASP in PWS. go to the php website, grab a PHP binary and the installation instructions. on win9x installations it requires a little skullduggery with regedit.exe - on IIS4.0 or 5.0 it can be configured via the GUI<BR><BR>I have (had) the following mixtures running<BR><BR>98/PWS/PHP3.0<BR>NT/IIS4.0/PHP3.0/mySQL<BR>NT/IIS4.0/PHP4.0<BR>2k/IIS5.0/PHP4.0<BR><BR>and it runs quite well. And btw http://www.infinitemonkeys.ws/ is planning a section on PHP under Windows for anyone who's interested (in reading *or* writing)<BR><BR>j
wrong? did you read what i wrote?! i simply said you cannot simply install iis/pws and begin creating php pages. the question simply asked "can i run php on iis, or do i have to install a 3rd party component?" no you cannot run php w/o getting the correct components and/or dll's needed to run php.<BR>of course you can run php, its just a matter of going through the process of setting it up.
I must have just skipped over that statment as being too dumb to be real... but your answer really didn't make things clear - it made it sound like PHP couldn't be run on PWS at all... (the main motivation for my post)
.. sometimes people will post a question as if this is the only source of information out there. it took me <5 seconds to search google and find a nice php tutorial that gave detailed instructions on how to get php running on iis. oh well
