I want to setup a message board at my work for helpdesk issues. I setup a windows 2000 server and installed IIS, I downloaded a messageboard software called ikonboard from www.ikonboard.com. It says that you need to have php software. I never done this before and was wondering if anyone can help me on what software i need to get this up and running. I have setup a message board on my outside isp but they had a easy wizard to create a mysql database. From what i understand is that i need a mysql database and some php.
I downloaded the php lastest version for windows and I installed it on the iis server but im still having problems, during the installation a message poped up stating : Due to a missing OCX control on your system. the installation wizard is unable to configure your webserver. I read the instructions on how to configure it manually but too confusing. I dont understand what it wants me to do i just want to be able to set up a message board.
