Some experiences running PmWiki locally:

* PHP 4 (any recent version) works. PHP 5 too.

* I've tried the Cookbook:Standalone server script but it bombed on me 
(tried W98 only). I'd like to see this resolved, as it represents the 
smallest install.

* I used Xitami for a while (on W2K), but every now and then it fails a page 
(while developing)

* I think I tried IIS on W2K but it was far more complicated then other 
solutions, and development was suddenly cycles apparently stalled it.

* The best solution I found, is using Abyss Web Server. Minimal install 
size, never fails.

* Tried an Apache based install because of supposed speed advantages, but 
for me they were minimal in comparison with Abyss, while being 50x bigger.

I'd like to try the Cookbook:StandAlone script again.

    I plan to install PmWiki on a Windows 2000 Server with IIS 5.0.  What 
are the best installation choices:
    1) PHP 4.x vs. PHP 5.x?
    2) Installing PHP using CGI, ISAPI or FastCGI?

    The documentation says PHP 4.1 or greater is required.  Have you had 
better experience with PHP 4.x or with PHP 5.x?

    I understand the general advantages and disadvantages of PHP with CGI 
and ISAPI.  PHP/CGI is more stable but slower.  PHP/ISAPI is faster but more 
unstable.  What are your experiences using PmWiki with PHP/CGI? What are you 
experiences using PmWiki and PHP/ISAPI?

    What about using PmWiki with PHP and FastCGI on Windows/IIS5 -- has 
anyone tried this?  What's your experience?
