Default PHP installation issues, yet again

I've read through the various posts here regarding installation, but can't see why my install isn't working. Can someone suggest other places to look? Here are basics:

Used full download from php.net (latest version); Installed per the book, on Win2K/IIS, reviewed php.net documentation for installation, which added several modifications to php.ini that weren't initially there. Symptom is that access to simple php page returns "Server error 500". Review of server properties, on the ISAPI tab, shows the PHP filter with a big red down-arrow, which I presume means that it couldn't load the dll. But the dll is in the WinNT/System32 directory, and is pointed to correctly in the properties. Review of server log file gives no help (shows the 500 error, only). I don't expect anyone to figure out my problem, but can someone suggest where I might start (continue) looking? Thanks in advance.

What DLL did you put into Winnt\System32? It should be php4isapi.dll. I don't think you need to put it in your system as long as you tell IIS where the DLL is.

I'd also start by using the default PHP.ini just to verify that the install worked. Your simple PHP test script should be simply:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>


Take care,

Nik

Nik, thanks for your reply. The dll is the one you name; I moved it into the WinNT/System32 directory after suspecting that for some reason the path that I was specifying to the php install directory (on the E: drive) wasn't working... I did modify the IIS properties to point to the winNT/System32 place.

I've just taken your suggestion and reverted to a copy of the distributed php.ini file (I used the .ini-recommended one, renamed of course to .ini). This made no difference.

The "sample" php code is exactly what you suggest (also what the book suggests).

I appreciate your taking the time to respond; unfortunately, I remain stumped.
