Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i am using windows server 2008 R2 (iis 7.5) and looking for the best and clean and quick way for preparing my web server with php applications without any conflicts with installed iis.
also i have installed DNS and Mail Server (MDaemon) and CProxy in that server(VPS - have remote access - i am system web developer -> asp.net with c#).
how can i do this job?

really appreciate for help
i googled it and found some solutions, but really do n't know which is better.
also all those ways were for iis 7.0 not 7.5.
i have Microsoft Web Platform installed.

thanks for answer / should i just install it? / what about phpMyAdmin? / and what about their settings and configs? –  MoonLight Apr 18 '12 at 14:57
phpMyAdmin is a different project that runs on PHP, you need to get PHP to work first before going to phpMyAdmin –  alexus Apr 18 '12 at 14:59
ok - i was thinking about WAMP...can i install it instead? –  MoonLight Apr 18 '12 at 15:02
you can use WampServer (the web development platform on Windows - Apache, MySQL, PHP) instead. –  alexus Apr 18 '12 at 16:43

Another quick method for PHP on IIS is to install Zend Server Community Edition from http://www.zend.com/en/products/server-ce/downloads.

The installer will setup a full PHP stack and configure it for use with IIS, or optionally an included Apache HTTPD binary. It also gives you the option of automatically downloading and setting up MySQL and phpMyAdmin for use with the installation.

EDIT: You also get the added bonus (or penalty) of having the Zend Framework and Zend Debugger installed and setup at the same time.
