Something I've kicked around for a while since doing FirePlay was doing an installer for PHP to make things a little easier (i.e. not having to RDP onto the server). This projects been a collaboration with fellow MVP, Drashna at WGS so I've taken his config he has posted and automated it.

So today, I finally cracked the installer and am releasing a beta version.

EDIT: I've removed the Add-In and reposting the release version in a different post.

WHS PHP Installer
=============

Version 0.0.5
Release 28/7/2009

Resolved an issue where a user may have renamed the server, and the IUSR account did not match the current server name. In this instance
an MSI 1603 error occurred.

========================================================================================================

Version 0.0.4
Release 27/7/2009

Following on with testing against PhpMyAdmin, a couple of changes were needed.

* Set the ACL for the IIS Guest Account against the PHP folder.
* cgi.rfc2616_headers = 0 set in php.ini
* extension=php_bz2.dll set in php.ini
* added code to the installer to cleanup and remove the session folder on uninstall.

========================================================================================================
Version 0.0.3
Release 22/7/2009

Fixed a typo that caused php to read a default ini file (i.e. with no extension support). I've tested 0.0.3 with MySql, Gallery 2 and pHpMyAdmin and no errors found.
========================================================================================================
Version 0.0.2
Release 16/7/2009

The installer will install a working copy of PHP Version 5.2.6 onto the Home Server. Extract the attached ZIP file to \\HPSERVER\Software\Add-Ins and then install through the Windows Home Server Console.

As this is a working PHP, you may wish to review the PHP.INI to suit your needs. This is held in C:\program Files\php

To help prove a successful install, I've delivered a test file as part of the installer so once you have installed the Add-In, just connect to http://hpserver/test.php

Please keep any comments, suggestions (and hopefully no bug reports) to this forum.

Please excuse my ignorance on the subject, but what is PHP and what is it used for?

Its a scripting language fast becoming the most popular format around (these forums are based on it). So the Add-In will allow you to install any application that needs php to function without the hassle of configuring it manually.

Realistically, this is a build-block for larger functionality, add-ins can be developed that depend on PHP such as Gallery, phpbb (these forums), etc.

So with PHP installed, you'll find a whole suite of other apps around that can make your WHS Web functionality much better. Personally, I started creating these Add-Ins so that when I build my systems, I don't have to go through manual steps. I'm a real big fan of Gallery over the MSS offering, which has php at it's core along with MySql..... so guess whats coming next!

Ok, now you've got my interest. I went to the Gallery website and am quite impressed with the sample photo sites. What is coming next. A Gallery addin for the console?

Cougar,

I'm looking over the Gallery website and noticed that there are a couple of more things needed.

Webserver: Is Windows IIS ok or should I go with Apache?

Image Processing Library: Which image processing library do you recommend?

And what about MySQL? Where is the best place to get this?

I'm doing MySql now, and then hopefully Gallery.

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.1.html#win32 for the MySql download.

Sorry, missed a couple of your questions.

Personal choice, but I run it on IIS fine.

Quote:

I've got Netbpm and ImageMagik installed and they seem to work fine for me.

Hello Peeps. I have read your thread with great interest regarding PHP, MySQL and Apache. I have the EX470 and was wondering if it is possible to run a web server from the box as well as the usual that is available. I am currently upgrading the ram from 500Mb to 2Gb (as suggested in the forum), hoping this would assist in this project. I built a Linux box and used that as a server for a while, however, it would be very advantageous to use the 470 as a server as well (all-in-one) so to speak. I'm not quite sure how i would go about installing all the above mentioned onto the 470 to achieve this. Any thoughts on this? #-o
