Using PHP and IIS to Create a Discussion Forum

  • 10 years ago

    Hi

    I've gone through the article on developerfusion.co.uk on how to use PHP and IIS to create a discussion forum and followed the instructions to install PHP and test, create the access database, add the two PHP files and then test the forum.

    I can access forum.php fine and input data into node.php but when I click on 'Post Message' my inputted text disappears and nothing is written to the Access database?  I thought it may have been a permissions issue but both 'Everyone' and the 'IUSR' account have Full Control NTFS permissions to the Access database?

    I've tried using both version 4 and version 5 of PHP but get the same problem?

    Can you advise?

    Thanks in advance for anyone who can help! :)
