I am in the process on installing a IIS on Win2008, which shall power PHP websites.

I am not familiar with "Application Request Routing". Does it make sense to install this module, when the plan is only to run php-sites?


If this is a single server and if you're running PHP on IIS where it's installed and configured as per the guidelines (PHP non-threadsafe build + FastCGI) then I can't really see a reason to be adding ARR into the mix unless....

  • you have Apache for Windows installed and are running your PHP applications in Apache but want to use ARR as a reverse proxy

  • You wish to take advantage of some of the caching features available in ARR

I'd leave it out until you start to hit problems that can be solved using ARR.
