Installing Moodle on Windows Server 2003 with SQL Server

To get started, there's some excellent instructions available for download as a PDF.

Additional things I did:

I tried to set up the FastCGI extension for IIS, but after getting some weird errors, decided to leave it for another time.

This did end up taking a lot longer that I'd hoped. But at least it is working now.

Hi Dave,

we have a largish installation currently running on MySQL. The corporate standard is to use SQL Server. After more than a year or so running with SQL Server, how has it gone? Did you hit any hurdles or regret the move?

My developers are saying no no no to a switch but currently the data is an island in a sea of SQL servers.

That's a good question. I left UniSA in mid-2008. I've heard they are still running Moodle but I don't know what configuration they're using.
