I am trying to build a webserver with PHP support. I am trying to install PHP 5.5.15 (NTS) on Windows Server 2008 R2, using IIS 7.5. I have installed all available service packs/updates to Server 2008. I have downloaded the Windows msi installer
from from php.net for php. While I am very Windows networking compliant (MCSE, 20 yrs experience), I am an extreme novice when it comes to php and am not a programmer. I am having three (3) problems - 1) I am not sure I have installed php, or installed it
correctly. How do I tell? I have installed CGI and related services/features on Server 2008. 2) When I double click win-cgi nothing happens, so that's why I think I may not have installed php, or installed it properly. I am trying to execute an open source
php script that creates a social networking/dating website. I have edited the php.ini file as directed by the script install instructions, but when I attempt to execute the script, I get the third 3) problem with the following error message:
You have 4 error(s):
1) Please install "PDO" PHP extension with MySQL driver.
2) Please install "GD" graphics PHP extension.
3) Please install "cURL" PHP library.
4) Please install the "mbstring" PHP extension.
I have placed the php files in a folder called "PHP55" and confirmed the files are in the folder. I am running MySQL server v5.6. Please help. I don't know what is missing or what I am doing wrong. If I had had hair, I wouldn't. I would have pulled it all
out by now. So all that remains is deciding which temple to point the gun at. I believe the resolution is simple, just not sure how to resolve it. You can view the error message at:

I suggest that you install php and php manager via web PI which will configure and manage it easily.
