Installation

From the Downloads page select the installation package that is appropriate for your target machine. Download and run the installer, which will install and register PHP Manager's binaries with IIS. Note that only IIS versions 7.0 and above are supported. After installation is complete, launch the Windows PowerShell command line window in an evelated mode (right-click and select "Run as Administrator"). After that type the following command:

Add-PsSnapin PHPManagerSnapin

This will register the PHP Manager powershell cmdlets that can be used to setup and configure PHP installation from command line. To get the list of available cmdlets use Get-Command cmdlet:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-Command -Module phpmanagersnapin

To learn what each cmdlet does use Get-Help cmdlet:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> get-help Get-PHPExtension

NAME
    Get-PHPExtension

SYNOPSIS
    Gets the list of PHP extensions available in the currently active PHP version.


SYNTAX
    Get-PHPExtension [[-Name] <String>] [[-Status] <PHPExtensionStatus>] [-SiteName <String>] [-VirtualPath <String>] [
    <CommonParameters>]


DESCRIPTION
    The Get-PHPExtension cmdlet outputs the list of all PHP extensions available in the currently active PHP version. T
    he list can be filtered by extension name and by the status (enabled or disabled).

Registering PHP with IIS

To register a new PHP version with IIS, first you need to download the zip archive with PHP binaries from http://windows.php.net/ and then extract the files from it into a folder of your choice. Note that you can also install PHP by using Web Platform Installer or the Windows installer from http://windows.php.net/ - the PHP Manager can be used to manage those PHP installations as well.

In the PowerShell command line window type while providng the absolute path to the location where you have extracted PHP binaries:

New-PHPVersion -ScriptProcessor "<absolute path to php-cgi.exe>"

To get information about the registered PHP version use Get-PHPConfiguraiton command:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPConfiguration

HandlerName              : php-5.3.6
Version                  : 5.3.6
ScriptProcessor          : C:\php\536\php-cgi.exe
HandlerType              : Local
ErrorLog                 : C:\Windows\Temp\php-5.3.6_errors.log
PHPIniFilePath           : C:\php\536\php.ini
InstalledExtensionsCount : 35
EnabledExtensionsCount   : 9

Switching between PHP versions

To get the list of PHP versions registerd with IIS use the Get-PHPVersion command:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPVersion

HandlerName                   Version                       ScriptProcessor                                      Active
-----------                   -------                       ---------------                                      ------
php-5.3.6                     5.3.6                         C:\php\536\php-cgi.exe                                 True
PHP53_via_FastCGI             5.3.6                         C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP...                         False

To switch the version use Set-PHPVersion. After that use Get-PHPVersion command to check if the change took effect:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Set-PHPVersion -HandlerName php53_via_fastcgi
PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPVersion

HandlerName                   Version                       ScriptProcessor                                      Active
-----------                   -------                       ---------------                                      ------
PHP53_via_FastCGI             5.3.6                         C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP...                          True
php-5.3.6                     5.3.6                         C:\php\536\php-cgi.exe                                False

Configuring PHP settings

To get the list PHP configuration settings and their values use Get-PHPSetting command. By default it will output a long list of all available settings, so it is a good idea to filter the output by using wildcard pattern for setting name or section name. For example, the following command will output all settings from MySQL sesion:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPSetting -Section mysql

Name                                    Value                                   Section
----                                    -----                                   -------
mysql.allow_local_infile                On                                      MySQL
mysql.allow_persistent                  On                                      MySQL
mysql.cache_size                        2000                                    MySQL
mysql.max_persistent                    -1                                      MySQL
mysql.max_links                         -1                                      MySQL
mysql.default_port                      <Not set>                               MySQL
mysql.default_socket                    <Not set>                               MySQL
mysql.default_host                      <Not set>                               MySQL
mysql.default_user                      <Not set>                               MySQL
mysql.default_password                  <Not set>                               MySQL
mysql.connect_timeout                   60                                      MySQL
mysql.trace_mode                        Off                                     MySQL

This command will output all settings which have word "error" in their names:

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPSetting -Name *error*

Name                                    Value                                   Section

To change the value of an existing setting use Set-PHPSetting command:

Set-PHPSetting -Name display_errors -Value On

To add a new setting use New-PHPSetting command:

New-PHPSetting -Name wincache.debuglevel -Value 101 -Section wincache

To remove an existing setting use Remove-PHPSetting command.

Enabling and Disabling PHP extensions

To get the list of currently installed extension use Get-PHPExtension command:

Managing PHP on a site or a folder level

All the PHP Manager cmdlets described in above examples can be applied on a site, application or a folder levels in IIS. This can be done by using the SiteName and VirtualPath parameters. The following example demonstrates how to change the PHP version for the directory "test" under "Default Web Site":

PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPVersion -SiteName "Default Web Site" -VirtualPath "test"

HandlerName                   Version                       ScriptProcessor                                      Active
-----------                   -------                       ---------------                                      ------
php-5.2.17                    5.2.17                        C:\php\5217\php-cgi.exe                                True
php-5.3.6                     5.3.6                         C:\php\536\php-cgi.exe                                False


PS C:\Users\Administrator> Set-PHPVersion -HandlerName php-5.3.6 -SiteName "Default Web Site" -VirtualPath "test"
PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-PHPVersion -SiteName "Default Web Site" -VirtualPath "test"

HandlerName                   Version                       ScriptProcessor                                      Active
-----------                   -------                       ---------------                                      ------
php-5.3.6                     5.3.6                         C:\php\536\php-cgi.exe                                 True
php-5.2.17                    5.2.17                        C:\php\5217\php-cgi.exe                               False
