I don't think it actually grabbed the phar file. I have modified the instructions in my last post so that it gets the installer and runs it first. As I mentioned earlier, downloading it through the commanline is unnecessary, you can just grab it off the site.

Hello,
BTW: In my experience it's easier to install IIS and PHP manually on a windows machine. Also always you can use the newest version of PHP. ;)
And the free MS SQL Express also is a good alternative to MySQL, too. If you are doing the Microsoft way then do it as much as possible. ;) :)

BTW: If you want to have a local copy of your LINUX using hosting package then you can install a virtual LINUX machine on your local windows desktop.

Yeah I'll have to agree with Callum here. The latest installations of PHP on Windows are pretty straightforward and make installation pretty easy. I just installed 2 or 3 months ago on a Windows Server 2008 box through the app gallery and it went perfectly smoothly without much manipulation needed to php.ini.

Even though I believe MS SQL Server to be much more robust and powerful than MySQL will ever be at pretty much any level, MySQL is much better suited for PHP.

Hello David,
installing an enviroment for phpBB on a WIndows machine with IIS, PHP and MS SQL Express is very easy and needs not more than 45 minutes. I've done it in local company network more than three years ago on a Server 2003 R2 machine. The board was running very well. (I left the company some months later.)

My private public websites are running on a LINUX hosting virtual server package, too. There is only one reason for LINUX: Lower costs.

But if I'm using a windows machine e.g. on my local enviroment why not to use the build-in IIS? Ten simple mouse clicks and it's installed and configured for the very easy installation of PHP. The same for MS SQL Express. In my experience MS SQL Express is running very well for phpBB.

I think most of phpBB using webmasters are using LINUX based hosting packages with Apache, PHP and MySQL preinstalled and running from the first second. They just have to install phpBB. This is the easiest way. But you can not compare this setup with a completely self-installed enviroment. Here you need some skills. And here it doesn't matter if it is LINUX or Windows.
Or you are using WAMP or other packages. This may be very easy, too. But if you have problems like on this topic here then you need others help cause you don't have enough own skills. And the packages maintenance and developement can be very slowly. ;)

my comment was aimed at your statement that it's easier to manually set up PHP when in fact it's easier to just use their Windows installer, which took all of 15 minutes or less to set up PHP on my Windows server. Same deal with MySQL. That's all. If you're happier manually setting up and configuring PHP on your own then that's fine too. ;-)

Hello David,
please remember: We have been talking about local testing enviroments.
Again: If you want to have a local copy of your LINUX based webserver on a windows machine then create a virtual LINUX GUEST machine on your windows HOST machine. IMO this is the best way to have a most similar testing enviroment in this scenario.

I think your other comments are caused by misunderstandings with my last post. Sorry, English is not my native language.

I will leave this discussion now. It's not really important and usefully and now too much off-topic. :oops: ;)
