Installing PHP5.3 on Windows Vista x64 with IIS7

Installing PHP5.3 on Windows Vista x64 with IIS7

I have successfully installed PHP5.3 but cannot seem to get it to work on IIS7. I have followed the tutorial on iis.net (http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/246/using-fastcgi-to-host-php-applications-on-iis-70/) and can clearly see in the IIS Console that the mapping for *.php files should execute php-cgi.exe as a Fast CGI module. However, when I try to load a php page in my browser, I see no output. Any suggestions on how to debug this?

"There is a forum post over at iis.net where wendac give instructions on how he got your same situation to work: Vista x64, IIS 7 and PHP 5.

I would think that the most important step that you might be missing is step 6:

6) Right click on the Application Pool that you want to run PHP on and select
“Advanced Settings…” or select the
same from the Actions pane after
selecting the Application pool

Change the “Enable 32-bit Applications” to
True (if you want the application pool
to spawn in a 32-bit mode)

Click OK"
