Mapping .html and .htm files to the php.exe file in 4.2.3 returns "The directory name is invalid" when trying to run a .html file.

.html and .htm have been mapped to ASP and work correctly, it is with this latest version of PHP that this error occurs.

This is with IIS 5 on windows 2000. It is a virtual directory that the file extensions are being mapped to. The setup version of PHP was the setup.exe file.

For this website I went to the properties->home directory->configuration->app mappings and added a new .html mapping to php.exe in my php directory.

Php is installed at c:\php

In my php.ini file i have aside from the default settings:
cgi.force_redirect = 0
extension_dir = C:/PHP/extensions
display_errors = Off
error_log = syslog

"It is a virtual directory that the
file extensions are being mapped to"

should read "Website" not virtual directory, that the file extension is being mapped to (rather than it being global accross all websites)

Is this an IIS problem or a PHP problem?

Mapping .html to ASP works so i'm assuming it's a problem with PHP and IIS

Please try PHP 4.3.0.

I encountered this problem also with PHP 4.3.1 on XP Pro with IIS 5.

I was NEVER able to get the CGI version of PHP to stop giving this error.

However, when I changed over to the ISAPI version of PHP everything seems to be working fine.

It's not a solution to the CGI Problem, but at least now I can develop.
