iis will not process php , you need to look at an apache server yahoogle for wamp or xxamp to instal a local testing server
edit I just heve seen that iis 6 will process php using fastcgi , however i have seen sonme posts here where some php scripts have failed so i would still recomend an apache server also as this would be the best live option IMO

You would find it difficult to find a commercial host with a WIMP (Windows, IIS, MYSQL, PHP :grin:) environment

Best use WAMP

nobody likes a WIMP!
