Screencast: How to Install MediaWiki on IIS7 in Windows Server 2008 (x32)

In this screencasts, we demonstrate the installation of MediaWiki on x32 version in Windows Server 2008.

We follow a similar step-by-step fashion to the one demonstrated in How to Install MySQL, PHP using FastCGI, and Joomla on IIS7.
The recommended approach when installing PHP on IIS7 is using FastCGI, which combines stability and the improved CGI performance.

You will need the following packages for this installation :
● MySQL 5.1 Community Server – Windows ZIP/Setup.EXE (x86)
● PHP 5.2 Non-thread-safe zip package. You can squeeze some additional performance using the NTS PHP package.
● MediaWiki 1.12 package
