PHP4 and PHP5 on IIS

By Harry Fuecks

After posting some links here on how to run PHP4 and PHP5 in parallel, a few people were asking about how to do the same with IIS.

David Duret dropped me an email to say he’s put up an article at http://miasmatik.maladoc.org/doc.php?d=6 explaining how to do it. The Google translation from French to English is here.

  • G8r :) But it’s not English :bawling:

    English translation:
    “Several versions of PHP on the same waiter” ;)

  • Hehe. Serveur is also waiter in french. And probably the more common usage. As are many computer terms, so one ends up seeing “shelterer” for host, and “reporitory” for directory. Overall I would say google did a great job with a technical document.

    Looking at the instructions, I dont really see how it would work. I am going to give it a shot and report back though.

    Hi, I’m currently translating my article in a old – almost – good english because Google made some (funny ?) mistkakes… If you have some comments, they would be incorporated in the translation…

  • Yeah, please get on with translating. I used to understand French some 5-6 years back but not anymore. I’m French Illiterate & yes, machine translation makes it really….

    Here is the english version of the article: http://miasmatik.maladoc.org/doc.php?d=12 – please don’t blame me for my poor english :) Any comments (and corrections) are welcome.

    To instally php4 and php5 on the same computer u need to setup what most hosting providers use. I dunno exactly what it is but u can then have different php.ini files. So u just select which php version to use in the corresponding php.ini file.

    I found this article about installing php on iis
