Christian Wenz's Blog:
Installing PHP on Windows 7
January 12, 2009 @ 09:32:33

Christian Wenz has put together a guide for installing PHP on the newest Windows version - the Beta of Windows 7 recently released for download.

Microsoft have released the first public beta for their upcoming Windows 7 operating system.

Actually, it was really easy, but since yesterday two people independently from each other asked me how to do it, I thought I'd write down the required steps.

The basic steps aren't very different from a normal Windows (IIS) installation:

  • Grab the latest non-thread-safe Windows binaries of PHP
  • Modify a few php.ini settings
  • Run the IIS installer and turn on CGI support
  • Point a FastCGI instance at PHP and
  • Make a test page
