drupal 7 slow on windows server 2008, iis 7

I have a d7 site up and running on windows server 2008 r2 with iis 7 and it's running extremely slow. I have been reading about the different caching alternatives and am wondering if anyone here has suggestions about which work best for this configuration. I have both authenticated and anonymous users and the entire site is SSL. I am looking at using authcache (http://drupal.org/project/authcache). I have a couple of questions:
1. Is authcache (with memcache as the handler - http://drupal.org/project/memcache) the best way to go for my set up?

install multisite drupal on 3rd party webhost

Hello all
I am trying to install drupal on my shared hosting plan. I have already successfully installed drupal 7.14 on my desktop windows server 2008 with IIS7. I plan to recreate the same site on the 3rd party webhost.
The hosting plan has the following:
1. Windows server 2008
2. IIS6
3. PHP 5.2.5
4. MySQL 5.0.91

I have setup my core drupal install at a subdomain http://dessites.des-us.com. It was working quite correctly, until suddenly, I get this error on browsing to the site:
Fatal error: Class 'PDO' not found in ........includes\database\database.inc on line 184

Disable execution of PHP in the files/ directory

SA 2006-006 makes it impossible to execute php inside the Drupal files directory on Apache servers. This is a defense in depth mechanism along with things like file_munge_filename and file extension limits in php.

Windows doesn't benefit from that change since the change was in .htaccess.

Is there a way to prevent IIS from executing files inside a specific directory? Is there some way we can bundle that up and ship it with Drupal like the web.config?

Multisite Setup Locally with Drupal 7 / MS SQLSRV / IIS 7.5

Drupal 7 / MS SQLSRV / IIS 7.5 (on localhost)

I'm trying to create a multisite setup on my localhost account with Drupal 7, and it's not been as easy as I had hoped. The biggest issue is that all of the tutorials on setting it up are for Apache and/or hosted setups.

This is what I need:

http://localhost (main install)

Does anyone either know of a great tutorial or documentation on how to do this? If not, some basic steps on accomplishing this would be great. Thanks for any help.

Unable to get CSS Aggregation to work under IIS 7.5

I'm trying to configure a Drupal installation on IIS 7.5 (Windows 2008R2). I installed PHP via the Web Platform Installer, and I do have Drupal running.

However, when I enable CSS Aggregation via admin/settings/performance, the aggregated css files are not being generated. I get the following error:
The selected file could not be copied, because no file by that name exists. Please check that you supplied the correct filename.

evaluating IIS vs Apache on a windows hosting server

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this group, and I'm forced to get drupal 6 running on a windows server, I've tried the latest web package installer, unfortunately, it does no more offer to install IIS + php + mysql with drupal 6.

I've read somewhere that running apache under windows ( with wampserver, uniform server ... ) is not fast and secure as with a IIS wimp solution.

I'm mostly used to a LIMP solution under apache, so if you can please give hints, links or anything that may help solve any issues that may come up wih IIS , I 'll be realy grateful.
