I've inherited this Windows Server 2008 server that we use as our primary web server and have lately been running into some oddities. Previously, PHP was installed by just downloading a zip file, extracting it to a specific file location (C:\Apps\php), make the appropriate php.ini changes, and call it a day. Since I thought that was a bit inefficient, I opted to move away from that model and go with the Web Platform Installer route, mostly to make upgrades more simple and efficient. Now I believe that I've removed all references to the older PHP install, but our Wordpress install is telling us otherwise.
Sometimes, in our PHP error logs, Wordpress has been throwing some random fatal errors for reasons that don't need to be mentioned here, but it references old pear extensions for the old PHP install. That confused me because in a
php_info(), everything is referencing the new PHP and nothing about the old pear install, and running
pear config-show only makes references to the new PHP install.
So I'm at a loss as to why it seems old PHP stuff is still being used. I'd like to configure IIS to only use whatever I specify whenever I install a new PHP version from the WPI. Any help would be amazing, thank you!
