Open IIS

– In the Add Script Map window, add *.php in the Request path, click the button next to Executable and select php5isapi.dll file from php installation folder (i.e. D:\php, if you have installed php on D drive), add a name like php in Name field and click OK.

– Now go to the Internet Information Management first page by clicking on Back button

– Then double click on Isapi Filtes. Click on Add from right hand panel.
