To make PHP work with IIS:

  1. Install PHP: Download and install PHP on your computer. Make sure to select the “APACHE” and “IIS” options during installation.
  2. Configure IIS: Open IIS Manager, select your website, click on “PHP Manager,” and add PHP to your website by selecting the installed PHP version.
  3. Configure PHP files: Create a PHP file in your website’s root directory with PHP code and test it in a web browser.
  4. Configure web.config: Edit the web.config file for your website to add handlers for PHP files and specify the path to the PHP CGI executable.

Save the changes and restart IIS. PHP should now be working with IIS.
