                         Install IIS MySQL and PHP on Windows XP and Server

This is a guide on Install IIS MySQL and PHP on Windows XP.

Install IIS

If IIS (Internet Information Services) is already installed, you can move on to the next page. Before we continue, make sure you have your Windows CD available. You will need it to install IIS.

1. First you need to open up your control panel, and select Add or Remove Programs.

2. Look on the left pane and click the button labelled Add/Remove Windows Components.

3. You should now see the Windows Components Wizard which displays a list of Windows Components. Scroll down till you see the one labeled Internet Information Services and Check the Box next to it.

4. Click Next.

5. Insert the Windows CD when the system asks for it, and then it should complete installing IIS.

6. Click Finish

Don't worry about testing your web server just yet. Some permissions need to be set before you get the results you expect.

Download and Install MySQL

If you already have MySQL installed, you can continue to the next step.

If you are installing over a previous version of MySQL, I'd recommend backing up your database and un-installing MySQL Server.

Installing MySQL is fairly straight forward.

First you should download the latest stable release of MySQL. The Windows Essentials version is what I would recommend if you don't already have a preference. This version contains an installer that both installs and configures your MySQL server.

Below are the steps as they flow in the current MySQL 5.1 Windows Essensials installer. Don't feel like you have to follow these steps exactly if there are options that would be better for you. Use this as a general guide.

1. Launch the installer, click Next >.

7. At this point, you can select what type of server best represents your system, but since I am aiming this article towards a development environment, I will select Developer Machine. Click Next >.

8. Select Multifunctional Database. Click Next >.

9. This is where you can select the drive for the InnoDB data file. Again, since this is a development environment we should be OK with the default install path. Click Next.

10. You can choose the number of connections you would like to restrict your server to. The first option, Decision Support, is recommended for 20 concurrent connections. Click Next.

11. You can set the port number your TCP/IP Network will use, the default option should be OK.

12. By default, the standard character set will be selected. I recommend checking Multilingual Support which will make the UTF8 character set the default. This will ensure that most multi-byte characters, such as those from Japanese and Chinese character sets, will store properly in the database. Click Next.

13. Install MySQL as a service and check or un-check the box to launch the service automatically based on your preference. I'd recommend checking the box to add the Bin directory to your Windows Path as it will be easier if you ever want to access MySQL binaries from the command line. Click Next.

14. Set the cecurity options. You only need to type and confirm the new root password when it's the first time you configure MySQL.

15. Now all there is left to do is Click Execute.

The configuration should finish up and MySQL should now be up and running on your system.

Install PHP
1. Get the latest php from PHP.net's download page. Download the zip packager rather than the installer.

2. Extract the zip file to c:\php

3. Copy php.ini-recommended file to php.ini

4. Edit the c:\php\php.ini file

  • Set the upload_tmp_dir to a temporary directory on your server, you could create a special on for this (e.g. C:\php\upload)

  • Set the SMTP setting to the ip of your smtp server. It won't work with authentication so make sure you can send from your web server through that smtp server without a user/pass

  • Set the sendmail_from to the email you want all emails from the server to come from

  • Set the upload_max_filesize setting to something a little large (if necessary). Default is 2M. I think 200M is ok.

  • Set your extension_dir = "C:\php\ext"

  • Set post_max_size to at least the size of your upload_max_filesize (+ a little bit more). Default is 8M. 210M should probably be ok if you increased the upload_max_filesize to 200M.

  • Uncomment (by removing the ; at the start of the line)"cgi.force_redirect" and change the value to 0 instead of 1

  • Uncomment (by removing the ; at the start of the line)

"extension=php_gd2.dll" , "extension=php_mbstring.dll" , " extension=php_mysql.dll" , "extension=php_mysqli.dll" , " extension=php_sockets.dll"

and "error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE"

  • Set "max_execution_time" and "max_input_time"

  • Save and exit the file

Setting up IIS and file/directory permissions
1. Open your Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS)

2. Now open the IIS management console by typing Start ->Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS), Right Click on Default Web Site and Select Properties.

  • Find out what user we need to give write access to by Edit the properties.

  • On the directory security tab, click the edit button under anonymous access and authentication control

  • Copy down the user name under the anonymous access section (it is allowed right ?). It's usually COMPUTER\IUSR_COMPUTER where COMPUTER is the name of the computer running IIS

  • Now right click on the C:\php\upload directory and go to properties, click the security tab, click add and in the box type in the name you copied down before.

  • Click check names and it should underline the name, then click ok.

  • Click modify and it should check all the other necessary boxes for you.

  • Click ok

  • If there is no security tab, then in windows explorer

    • Go to the Tools menu, choose 'Folder Options'.

    • Choose the 'View' tab and find the option called 'Use simple file sharing' (usually the last one) and untick it.

    • Click apply, then ok.

    • Go back to the previous step

  • Repeat this for any other directories which need to be writeable by your php application.

  • Now go back to the IIS management console, right click on the website you want to setup php for and go to properties.

  • Click the documents tab and click add and type in index.php and click ok. This tells the webserver to look for index.php files for a default file.

  • Now, still in the iis management console, click the home directory tab, click on the configuration button and then click add.

  • Browse to the c:\php\php-cgi.exe file for the executable and .php for the extension. We want it for All Verbs which is checked by default, check script engine and uncheck "Check that file exists" then click ok.

  • Then click ok until all the dialogs are closed and restart your website in the iis control panel by clicking the restart button in the toolbar or by right click and choosing restart from the tasks menu.

To learn more about Security configuration of IIS, please refer to IIS security recommendations.

Now create a file in your web root called info.php and put in it then browse to that file in your web browser via it's url. It should bring up a phpinfo page which will let you check that mysql is enabled etc.
