I forbid those all-in-one setups. I prefer to manually install Apache and PHP. If you want to install Apache and PHP then have a read of [url=http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php/topic,108327.msg435982.html#msg435982]this post of mine[/url].

fire up a web browser and type in http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1
it didnt start the welcome page instead i got error! so i uninstalled apache and went back to IIS

first of all im running windowsXP
i tried to install IIS from the add/remove program, windows componant, IIS.
so it's installed, and i checked it out by browsing localhost i got the getting started page.
i assumed i have no problems with IIS until i run 'iisext.vbs' Command-Line Administration Script, it's in C:\Windows\system32 and the script is: cscript iisext.vbs /AddFile c:\PHP\php5isapi.dll 1 PHPISAPI 1 "PHP ISAPI"
but i gives me Input error: can not find script file iisext.vbs and when i checked the system32 folder i found iisext.dll ?? so what should i do?

When you installed Apache did you uninstall IIS?

You may have not uninstalled IIS and when Apache started up. It couldn't as IIS was still running. About the error your get could you post me the error you got too. Also when you go to http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/ make sure Apache is running. You know when its not as you get a 404 Page cannot be displayed error or something similar.
