windows php installer yippee

Just the other day I was thinking about hiring a Windows programmer type to make a decent PHP installer for me, because the current one is unusable. It doesn’t install any of the modules so it’s totally worthless. My customers are then forced to do a manual installation, which is tricky to say the least.

Well it seems that those fine devs who work on PHP have beat me to the punch and are working on one for PHP 5.2. A few details are here. There’s a more in depth discussion here.

Just taking a quick look at my last 10 trials, 9 of 10 were Windows and I’m 100% sure my conversions would go up significantly if PHP was easier to install on Windows.

Happy days are here again!
