PHP Manager 1.1 available in Web PI

PHP Manager 1.1 for IIS 7 has been released today. This is an incremental release that contains all the functionality available in PHP Manager 1.0 for IIS 7 plus additional features listed below:

  • Improved detection logic for existing PHP installations. Now PHP Manager detects the location to php.ini file in accordance to the PHP specifications.
  • Configuring date.timezone. PHP Manager can automatically set the date.timezone directive which is required to be set starting from PHP 5.3.
  • Ability to add new PHP extensions. When pointed to a PHP extension file, the PHP Manager will copy it to the right location and will enable the extension in php.ini file.

In addition, several bugs were fixed in this release. The complete list of changes can be found in the change list.

PHP Manager can now be installed with Web Platform Installer. Use the link below to install it:

    It’d be great if you could detect a MSI based PHP install (e.g. like how WebPI installs its PHP) and offer the ability to install extensions using the MSI package.

    @Sam: thanks for the suggestion. Logged this as a work item here.

    Awesome! I was wondering where you could edit the date.timezone option, but now that you can, that’s great for PHP 5.3. Just used PHP Manager to setup PHP 5.3.4 on IIS 7.5 without a problem.

    This has pretty much made instruction guides for setting up PHP on Windows redundant… :-)

    This tool fills the void that boggles many a hosting provider — and developer.
    - Clients requiring specific PHP versions because of poorly-written applications? Problem solved.
    - Feel like testing if your cutting-edge application works in an ancient PHP version? Problem solved.
    It’s so natural that one might think “why didn’t I come up with that idea?” :)

    Hi Ruslan. I was thinking even though php logging is very important, turned off it should have a performance gain, even if very little. Thus, I was hoping that an option can be added to remove that exclamation mark for logging being disabled on purpose.

    Of course, I may be the only one with php logging disabled hehe.
