IIS configuration component of the installer needs an overhaul due to the removal of the PHP ISAPI module in 5.3.8

Proposed solution:

If IIS configuration is selected, do the following before installation:

IIS 6.0/5.1

IIS 7.0+

  • Check if FastCGI is enabled (how?)

For the actual installation, we need to modify the following:

IIS 6.0/5.1

  • Change handler mapping from php_isapi.dll to fcgiext.dll

IIS 7.0+

  • Use appcmd.exe to create the FastCGI application process pool and the PHP handler mapping

Another thing of note: FastCGI in IIS recommends using a non thread-safe version of PHP, whereas a thread-safe version of PHP is recommended for Apache. Should we bundle both?

If IIS configuration is chosen, it would also be of help to users to slap on a big warning message stating that FastCGI for IIS needs to be installed before proceeding.
