Seems that "yesterday" Microsoft introduced [url=http://www.microsoft.com/web/]Microsoft Web Platform[/url], a webapplication installer system that fetches and installs microsoft's server programs. I don't run anything on Windows. But this looks like a neat replacement for the package managers you'd use on other systems, specifically targeted a webapps.

They also [url=http://www.microsoft.com/web/gallery/SilverStripe.aspx]included Silverstripe[/url] (v2.3.1).

Looks awesome :) here is Sigurd's blog about it http://silverstripe.org/installing-on-windows-now-easier-thanks-to-microsoft-web-platform-installer/

Anybody know if this could be used in a production environment?

Taffy - If you wanted a Windows production environment with SilverStripe, this is way we're most confident of you approaching this. One of the whole reasons for us working on the WebPI system was to allow you to confidently deploy SilverStripe on Windows. Keep us informed of how you go!

Will do! Once I get a sec I'll set up a virtual instance on my VM box and give it a go.

I was about to dive in with Apache but since I also work with SharePoint and many other Microsoft techs it makes sense to use IIS.

AndrewMK can you upload the screenshot of what you've done? That will make it easier to determine your problem.

Did you get the success page as shown here:

Hey Sigurd, Yes i definitely got that page. Once i clicked on that link however i got a 404 error. I have discovered that the 'default website' in IIS doesnt seem to have PHP installed as i tried browsing to http://localhost/install.php and was greeted with the message of not having PHP installed.

I copied the application mappings in IIS from the root of IIS into the applications mapping for the default site and now i get the following when browsing to http://localhost/install.php

PHP Parse error: parse error in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\sapphire\dev\install\config-form.html on line 178

I have attached an image

You do not need to visit http://localhost/install.php - the system is already set up. You may need to do a /dev/build if WebPI was unable to do that, but nothing more.

It is very strange that PHP was not set up - can you provide precise details so that I can have a Microsoft Web PI programmer investigate this?
