This recipe was written after a frustrating effort to get PmWiki running under IIS when previously it had worked fine under Apache 2.2.
|Platform||Windows Server 2003 SE SP1|
Hi I had to edit the Configuration properties of the Virtual Directory of PmWiki to get it to work. The default installation of php under Windows puts it under the c:\Program Files folder, and this means there is a space in the path, which causes problems.
So I had to start IIS Administration, select the PmWiki virtual directory, edit its Properties, then select Virtual Directory, then click on Configuration, and select php in Application Extensions. There the executable path contains tildes ~, which must be the culprit. Simply click Edit, then browse to the directory where your php5isapi.dll is located. After you have selected the file, make sure it is surrounded by double-quotes. Click on Ok on everything to accept the settings. Now it should work.

I was eventually able to get rid of
pmwiki.php. I have some notes @ http://michaelpaulukonis.com/Blog/2014-07-10 (That blog is NOT running under IIS)

Write Permission under Windows XP
To give PmWiki permission to write to wiki.d under Windows XP & IIS you have to use the security tab in the folder properties. By default, Windows XP users have that security tab hidden. To show it follow the following procedure:
Now you will have the security tab shown in the properties of every folder. Now, to give write access to PHP in order to fopen, copy or upload a file, follow this procedure:
