    What PHP do I download if I already have WinXPPro/IIS?

    Hi, I'm an ASP developer wanting to give PHP a try.
    What do I download on the PHP.net site?
    I have Windows XP Professional and IIS on my PC right now.
    Here are some choices (which are confusing to me):
    <<
    Latest version of PHP
    Complete Source Code

    PHP 4.3.1 (tar.bz2) [3,596Kb] - 17 February 2003
    md5: bbfe584acb3549c62bb61355165e2ca6

    PHP 4.3.1 (tar.gz) [4,395Kb] - 17 February 2003
    md5: d4a34efe145b43ed10dbd95825686065

    See the ChangeLog for a complete list of changes, or the release notes for more information on this particular release. Daily snapshots are also available from snaps.php.net (not intended for production use!).

    Windows Binaries
    All Windows binaries can be used on Windows 98/Me and on Windows NT/2000/XP.

    PHP 4.3.1 zip package [5,853Kb] - 17 February 2003
    (CGI binary plus server API versions for Apache, Apache2 (experimental), ISAPI, NSAPI, Servlet and Pi3Web. MySQL support built-in, many extensions included, packaged as zip)
    md5: 9c3304bbbc1c1603a3dfc60bf80ee04d

    PHP 4.3.1 installer [1,028Kb] - 17 February 2003
    (CGI only, MySQL support built-in, packaged as Windows installer to install and configure PHP, and automatically configure IIS, PWS and Xitami, with manual configuration for other servers. N.B. no external extensions included)
    md5: 736b116ca8c39037c5616b6f39d40c3d

    Thanks a lot!

    If you want to use PHP on IIS then you want that last option .. (s'funny how the IIS option is last )

    PHP 4.3.1 installer [1,028Kb]

    though that has a few extensions missing all of the important stuff is there and it should do most of the work in configuring IIS for you.

    note that the zip binary also has all the bits and peices required for it to work on IIS (the SAPI module and the registry entries) but you have to configure for IIS yourself.
