As far as PHP goes, i am not sure. As far as .NET goes:

If you installed the framework AFTER you installed IIS then the framework should already be registered with IIS. To see if it is, right click on a website and select properties from the menu appears. The last tab should say ASP.NET.

If you installed IIS AFTER you installed the framework goto Start --> run --> cmd

and navigate to your .NET folder. It would be something like:


once there type aspnet_regiis -i and press enter. This will register the runtime with IIS.

*Note: you will have framework directories for 3.0 and 3.5, ignore these and instead run the command from the 2.0 directory. (3.5 is built on the 2.0 core so they do not have the regiis bat file)
