[wp-hackers] IIS Problem

Looks strange to me. Why do you have to create a DSN? Can't you connect to MySQL the usual way? I've had numerous installs on Windows/IIS5 with PHP4/MySQL4 and haven't had any problems since March last year.

And yes, you can't CHMOD on Windows/IIS. You need to have to ask for write permission from the webhost. Besides, mail() function isn't enabled on Windows/IIS, I doubt it can work normally. I read somewhere that it needs to be worked around. Besides, doesn't WP has an option to use SMTP if mail() is not available? I think if its not available, then it should be, as some guys do install WP on Windows/IIS.

And your fopen, fread, fwrite etc. are disabled as noted in your phpinfo() output, I think that WP uses fopen/fread to load the plugins, so that's why you are not able to open the plugins directory.

The problem right now is that clicking "Plugins" gets me this:
"Couldn't open plugins directory or there are no plugins available."

Any advice appreciated
