Not sure you can do PHP with Windows IIS. Haven't seen it yet (I could be wrong -- still learning this stuff myself). I've seen ASP available on Linux servers via ChiliSoft but not visa versa.

As far as my resources tell me nativley Win 2003 Server does not support PHP on the whole, thats not to say it won't work. MS probably just won't support it.

*lol -- I'm sorry --I'm in a cross between a humorous and frustrated mode. I'm about to reformat this computer and start from scratch with Win2K Pro this time. I made the error of installing a Novell server over Win98 and took up almost all my hardrive space with the darned Netware partion (that's the humorous part -- sitting here laughing at myself -- thankfully I have all my data stored on my two other computers)

And I'm in a bugger of a position in that I have 2 freelance jobs depending on whether I can come up with a respectable shopping cart for ASP using mySQL database (That's the frustrating part and where your question comes into play)

The problem is is that the clients are on Win2K hosts that don't support PHP. If they did, I'd have had both of these jobs done by now.

Dude -- if IBPlanet said it's possible, ask them how! I'm dying to know!

Hmmm...will have to look into that..If you can be more specific about the how-to's it would be appreciated.

-----------------------
Edited -- never mind. I just saw b_heyer's post.

Thanks for the heads up

P.S. I'm happy you got it. I want to feel that too. Unforunately I don't have control over the client's web hosts.
