Screencast: How to Install MySQL, PHP using FastCGI, and WordPress on IIS7 in Windows Server 2008 (x32)

In this screencasts, we will demonstrate the installation of WordPress on x32 version of 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.

The following packages are necessary 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.
● WordPress 2.5 package
