Set Up PhP of IIS 5.1

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I am new to Php, not to programming.  I am trying to set up Php and IIS so  
that I can put all of the .html
and .php files into the folder e:\work\phpapp.

Php is installed correctly.  When I put the file Journal.html and  
JournalResp.php into c:\inetpub\wwwroot everthing works fine.

When I put these 2 files into e:\work\phpapp and try to open them with  
Foxfire using localhost\journal.html, I get a file not found error.

In IIS I  have made a virtual directory pointing to e:\work\phpapp, and have  
set the doc_root in php.ini to e:\work\phpapp.

If  I move journal.html to c:\inetpub\wwwroot,  journal.html opens  
correctly, but the call to JournalResp.php generates a 'no input file'  

So, how can I set up IIS/Php to find the files in e:\work\phpapp when I open  
them using localhost?

Many thanks
Mike Thomas

This seems more like an IIS issue than a PHP issue, but anyway....
What did you name your virtual directory pointing to e:\work\phpapp?
You should try browsing to  
http://localhost/nameofyourvirtualdirectory/journal.html instead of just
