Hi in my development machine I want to completely turn off caching (all types) for php. No matter what I try IIS 7 is still caching and it really drives me crazy!

OK, this may be a late response, but i had a similar problem, that it turns out was caused by a PHP accelerator called wincache.

just comment out this line in php.ini [PHP_WINCACHE] ;extension=php_wincache.dll

Check if you have the below mentioned entry in your applicationHost.config file.

    <caching enabled="true" enableKernelCache="true">

Change the true to false and you should be good..

From UI,

Click on the Web Site -> Output Caching click on Edit Feature Settings... uncheck Enable cache and Enable kernel cache

both unchecked and set to false, still caching. my php file is so simple it just echo "somestring" but still caching about 1 minute. – user50154 Aug 4 '10 at 10:23
if those parameters are false.. then i would check if PHP caching is enabled in the application.. check this article – Vivek Kumbhar Aug 4 '10 at 12:12
