We are running a web server IIS8 on a windows server 2012 machine. I need to install PHP on it.

I found a nice tutorial here: http://www.nutstech.info/2012/09/windows-server-2012-server-core-setup.html

But, I am hesitant to follow it, and would like to know whether anyone has had experience installing PHP for IIS8 on a win server 2012 machine and whether there is an easy way of doing this?

Please note that I will be using php scripts to run stored procedures on a sql server 2012.


I would use the TechNet article instead, or perhaps a blend of both. I see some warnings on the TechNet side about installing the non-thread version due to incompatibilities with PHP 5.4.


Microsoft says the best way is to use their Web Installer from IIS.
