PHP 7.2 support with IISExpress

Postby emsmith » March 8th, 2018, 2:00 pm

I have a locally installed version of PHP 7.2

I'm currently running it with the built-in webserver for debugging and testing but deploying the code to and IIS server

This is annoying because there are subtle behavioral differences between the two and I have to maintain a separate router script for each solution.

I'm aware that Microsoft hasn't gotten their ducks in a row to get a new version of PHP into the web platform installer, but there shouldn't be any reason to exclude user installed PHP from use with IISExpress.

Is there any reason you can't allow a "user installed" version of PHP to be used with IISExpress? I've edited the IISExpress configuration file and can run it with PHP 7.2 fine "by hand" I'm currently using some powershell scripts to get it up and running. But the debugging doesn't function correctly. And I miss the one click "run" integration.

This is really frustrating especially since PHP 7.2 was released 30 Nov 2017 which means it's been five months. And installing and running a local IIS and hooking it up is also very annoying and time consuming (especially with multiple developers) when this all works "out of the box" with PHP 7.1
