Windows 7: phpBB + MySQL + IIS7??

phpBB + MySQL + IIS7??

I am trying to install phpBB for testing purposes on my IIS "server". I have MySQL installed, and have created a db with the following info:
name: wiki (don't ask me why)
user: root
password: ******

At the db config, I enter:
Type: MySQL with MySQLi Extension
DSN: or localhost (neither work)
Server port: (default)
Name: wiki
Username: root
password: ******
Prefix: phpbb_

I have tried this with MediaWiki, and it cannot find the server. I set up MySQL 5.1 with default settings, set the root password, created a db with the command line. Also, I cannot reach my server with localhost. I always need to type Is this a problem?

Thanks in advance.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

perhaps not what you are looking for but consider an alternative -- use an APACHE server with MySQL and PHP. It's a lot less cumbersome than IIS and plenty of examples on the web of setting it all up.
Usually known as WAMP.

Just a suggestion - but I found IIS problematic -- Apache runs straight out of the box - and makes a great web server.

Can you give more details on how to uninstall IIS? If need be?

Hi there.

I think it's in the Windows Features
I never installed it in the first place so I didn't have to uninstall it.

Control Panel ==>progrtams and features==>turn windows features on or off
