I am sure others have encountered and overcome this problem. I have installed and verified the installation for PHP 5.2.9-2 and MySql 5.0.67 and both are installed correctly. I have supplied the correct values in the wp-config.php file. I have checked and double checked all of this and am positive that I have it correct.
Now the problem, I browse to http://www.mysite.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php and enter the name of my blog, my email address and click the Install WordPress button and I get the following error:
The page cannot be displayed
You have attempted to execute a CGI, ISAPI, or other executable program from a directory that does not allow programs to be executed.
Please try the following:
Contact the Web site administrator if you believe this directory should allow execute access.
HTTP Error 403.1 – Forbidden: Execute access is denied.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
So I have used IIS to grant execute access on the wordpress, wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes folders and still get the same error. Being stubborn I have not yet given up so I set the ntfs privileges to allow shared web access with execute privleges for the previously mentioned folders.
Still get the sasme freakin error! What am I doing wrong? I am sure many others have successfully installed and configured WordPress on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
