Install IIS 7, PHP5 and MySQL 5.1 on Windows Server 2008

Adding Internet Information Server 7 Role

IIS 7 is now a server role in Windows 2008 Server as opposed to previous versions of Windows Server (2000 and 2003) where IIS was installed as a component.
To add the IIS7 server role, launch the Server ManagerStart => Programs => Administrative Tools => Server Manager
Right-click on Role from the left panel and select Add Roles from the contextual menu. From the Add Roles Wizard, check the Web Server (IIS 7) checkbox. Click on Next until the Roles Services screen.
