Vinu Thomas' Blog:
Fastrack with PHP on Windows
September 14, 2009 @ 11:50:18

Vinu Thomas has started up a new series on his blog today that will look at how PHP works with other technologies outside of your typical LAMP stack:

I was quite interested in seeing what Microsoft had to offer for PHP developers. Going through the oveview of the programs, they seem to have come up with quite a few solutions for PHP developers. One of the important integrations for PHP is the ability to run PHP directly from IIS, as a FastCGI app, without having to install Apache in Windows.

The tool he mentions if is the Web Platform Installer Microsoft offers to make installing PHP and applications onto an IIS web server simpler. There's also a few tools included that have been missing from some of the standard installations - htaccess support, mod_rewrite abilities, PHP extensions and the Windows Cache extension (recently released).
