With Dan’s help I’ve got WordPress up and running on my IIS box.
It really is not difficult at all, All you have to do is install PHP, MySQL, and WordPress. Then make sure you create a php.ini file in the root of the website with the following 2 lines
cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
cgi.force_redirect = 0
Once that is done it should all go without a hitch. All I now have to do is to sort out the 404 page so it’s not the IIS default one.
For a more in depth guide on IIS and WordPress pop along to WalkerJohnstone.net as JB has put together a decent guide to get the lot all happy together on one box. (I myself am using 2, one for IIS and PHP, the other for MySql and SQL Server as it happens).
Update – Just noticed the sidebar is not rendering very nicely in FireFox, not really sure why, but it’s too late to be CSS’ing so it will wait till the morning. Sorry to Mozilla users.
Update 2- So I could not goto bed with it broken, now fixed and now to bed before the wife shoots me
