This is just a summary on how to host static & dynamic page in Windows Server 2008 R2. For detail’s guide click on the link in the step by step guides below. Credit to TrainSignal for the detail’s guides.
- Install Internet Information Services (IIS)
- Install PHP
- Install MySQL Database
After completion, you should be able to host static & dynamic page. Dynamic website such as WordPress should work well.
If you have Windows Server 2008 R2 & having problem to start Internet Information Services IIS due to Windows Process Activation Service (WAS) unable to Start or file missing (“file not found”) you want to do the following.
- Uninstall Windows .net Framework 3.5
- Uninstall Windows Process Activation Service (WAS)
- Uninstall IIS
- Restart the server
- Re-install IIS
It works for me.
