Per my last post, I thought I would check out the new PHP drivers for SQL Server 2005. From an interoperability perspective, this is really interesting for me. I 'cut my teeth' writing web applications early in my career which started on ASP (and Vsual Interdev) then moved to .NET. Over the years, in my perpetual study of web technologies, I came to use the WAMP stack for most web publishing (Windows + Apache + MySQL + PHP) because I had developed a high comfort level with the PHP script. Interestingly the 'WISP' stack never crossed my mind until recently (Windows + IIS + SQL Server + PHP), so I wanted to see how easy it could be set up, and how well it ran. The configuration was pretty straightforward although there were a couple of things that I had to research - setting up fastCGI for example.I've outlined my steps here...To note, I put all of this together on my laptop (specs noted below).
