To install IIS on Windows XP, make sure you have Windows XP Pro edition. Goto

control panel -> add remove programs, select windows component.

From the list, check Internet Information Services (IIS) and click next. Make sure windows installation CD is in the CDROM.

Once you have installed IIS, goto php.net and download the binaries for windows with installer. Run the file and it will guide you through rest of the process.

An easy way to install Apache is to use WAMP:

Anyone, I am about to install the PHP binaries for Windows XP and IIS version VC9. On the PHP download page, the have thread safe and non-safe versions to choose. Why would I want to download the non-thread safe version?

Well, I opted for the non-thread safe version anyway because my machine runs slow enough and this is just for single user stuff I'm testing. I guess the performance hit must be severe enough if they maintain both versions.
