    Hi everyone,

    Sorry if this a newbie questions and easily fixed but i can not seem to figure it out.

    I am trying to create a new local wordpress site to practice developing. I have already created the site and all directories in IIS. The server is running Windows Server 2008. It is an active server and currently hosting about 6 other live sites. Everything has already been installed onto server (MySQL, PHP, etc) but that was done a while back and not by me. Whenever i try and run the wordpress install i get a error saying that PHP is not installed or not running. I can see PHP installed on the server but can not figure out why i keep getting this error. I have also tried running PHP info scripts which do not work either (no error just doesnt load). Any body have any idea what could solve this problem? If i was to uninstall and then re install PHP would this affect any of the live sites currently running on the server?

    Again sorry if this is easily fixed, just trying to learn and figure everything out. Any advice/ help is really appreciated.
