3)    Unzip the package and install to c:\php

4)    Enter the SMTP (for maharam if the incorrect value is entered the mail() function will work

5)    Choose which server is being used (select Microsoft IIS 4 or higher)

6)    In the final stages php will copy over the necessary files, then it will ask you to confirm the IIS script mapping (you can use the default). A message will display when complete

7)    Restart the IIS service (see step 2)

Testing your install

Create a script in notepad

Enter this:


Save the file as test.php make sure it does not save as txt.
Put the file in the root directory of your webserver and try to access it via the web

Note: You should make modifications to the php.ini to address global variables, file uploads, ftp, database, and error logging.
