php5 on Windows 2003, installation guide

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm trying to install php5 on a Windows 2003 Server Web Edition. The end goal is to install phpBB to run with SQL Server 2000.

I was going to use these instructions...

Has anybody ever followed these steps?

The last time I tried to install php, it was a nightmare. So I'm looking for some directions that will make it easy this time.

Any help would be appreciated.

I used that method of installing php after another guide I had didn't work for me. Only thing is that I cannot get it to work using CGI, and the ISAPI installion of it gives me an error. It seems to think that my php.ini file is somewhere else. I'm trying to set the include directory, but dispite what I tell it, it thinks it is "c:\php5\pear". If anyone knows what's wrong with that, I'll gladly take any assistence I can. As long as I don't use 'include' or 'require', my php pages work fine.
