Topic: TIPS : How to run punBB on Windows

Usage :

  - Windows 2003 Server EE with IIS 6.0
  - PHP 5.0.4 with MySQL/MySQLi extensions
  - MySQL Server 4.1.13

Edit install.php and replace

define('PUN_ROOT', './');

by

define('PUN_ROOT', dirname(__FILE__).'./');

Same method in the index.php and perhaps others.

We use IIS6 at work and it's a pain if you want to run anything but ASP/ASP.NET.

Using IIS6 on our servers at my work, and we don't have any problems running PHP and Perl on them.

Edit: PHP is a pain to install on either system though... I hate it.

We've had a plethora of problems. IIS worker processes crashing (without anything being logged), weird memory allocation bugs when using any kind of opcode cache, permission issues with calling command line tools such as imagemagick etc.
