Movng WordPress Site to a W2K8 Server and IIS7

If you like to be in control of all your servers, you would love the gentle nature of WordPress installation.  Installation includes PHP,  MySQL  and  WordPress components.  All steps can be done manually.  Instead of running install, you can just copy files and directories, and make manual configurations adjustments.  It is like labyrinth of  DLL(s) meets the non-DLL world for the first time.   Check IIS7 Installed Components Windows Server 2008 comes with IIS 7.  Windows 7  and Server 2008 R2 come with IIS 7.5.
