I am sorry to ask for help on something as simple as installation, but I have been trying many different things for three days now. Here is the situation.
I am a volunteer that was asked to help bring a non-profit organization's website back in house after some personnel changes. The IT firm before was relocating and they had outsourced most of the infrastructure. As a result, they transfered the backup files from their hosting service that they were about to close down to me. The site was originally running in a LAMP environment. I am attempting to restore the site as it was before to a 2003 Windows Server, running IIS 6, with MySQL 5.1 and PHP 5.3.1. I have removed and reinstalled MySQL and PHP so many times it is not funny.
Right now I have messed with it so much that I can't get the MySQL Service to start and I when I run the /wp-admin/install.php link, it acts like it is running, but never goes beyond that. Am I missing something?
Anyway, I am looking for guidance since I am a more of a SysAdmin than web developer.
