I'm trying to install PHP on our public Web Server (Windows Server 2008 32-bit). I was told by a friend to make sure I do a manual install because running the Web Installer will mess up IIS, which is what I'm trying to avoid.

To start, I thought I would attempt doing this on our development server, which is running 2008 R2 64-bit. Even though I was told Microsoft Web Platform would work on this machine, I wanted to do it manually to simulate what I would need to do on the public server.

I found PHP's official documentation ( and followed each step: Unpacked the PHP files to C:\php and configured php.ini. But when I go to test if PHP works from the command prompt, I type in "php -info" and get "Could not open input file: o".

So I figured that I had missed something, deleted my edited php.ini file and extracted a fresh copy, but I'm still getting the same error.

I tried Googling the error, but found little help. I'm hoping someone might have some advice?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try specifying the path to your php.ini file with the -c option. Some windows php binaries are built to use php.ini from c:\windows only.
