How to Install PHP Manager on Windows Server 2016 And Windows 10 With IIS 10

In this article, I’ll show you how I install PHP Manager on Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10 with IIS 10.

Step by step guide

As you can see below, PHP Manager gives the error below when I try to install it out of the box.

Note: PHP Manager also fails when trying to install it using the Web Platform Installer.

Error: PHP Manager for IIS Requires IIS 7 or higher to be installed.

  1. Nobody knows where these installers come from as the user who put it on Github didn’t provide source code for it (while PHP Manager was a open source project). Looking at the repository issues, it seem someone already tried to question about this, but received no reply so far.
    Until the uploader clarifies this, I don’t think it would be 100% safe to touch those installers.
