Installation error on Windows server 2008 R2, PHP 5.5.24

Hi,

my client's server is windows Server 2008 R2 with which they have installed PHP on IIS PHP version 5.5.24

I have tried to install Phalcon dll Extension x86, also added the "extension=php_phalcon.dll" to the php.ini file as per instructed on the website, restarted the server/apache but the extension is not loaded

if anybody can help would be much appreciated...

here is the link to screenshot of the phpinfo https://app.box.com/s/08tcb2a913jyts1wjx03no0yeuvync5f

there are some problems with win 64 bit stuff as far as I know. I think there is more info here : https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/10867/windows-php-7-dll

Oh boy. Good luck with IIS and Win server. Can you setup a VirtualBox on that Windows and run full stack inside as a VM? That's what I did in similiar situation, and everything worked fine, until Windows crashed and killed VM.

Samster, thats a production server, not the development server. is it a good idea to run a vm in production server?

IMHO, it is much better idea to run isolated VM then to interfere with some core libs on the system. I guess the server has at least 8 GB of RAM? I had similiar use case, and we just refused to put app on their Win machine. For some time it ran inside VM on it, but later on they moved it onto another spare VM on a real hypervisor.
