Assign log on as a service user rights to a local system account via GPO using WMI Filters

On a couple of customer sites I had the issue that the local security policy entry Log on As A Service was controlled via GPO and our applications did not start properly because the local user account did not have the required access rights.
Attached you will find a manual I wrote to show you how to modify those entries and how to setup an WMI Filter to only apply the new GPO to the required servers to save you creating several OUs.

PHP 5.x with IIS 6.0

Due to a hardware fault on our old web server I had to move this homepage to a new machine.

Previously we were running on Debian Linux with the Apache web server. The server I had “spare” is a Windows 2003 Server machine. I installed the IIS 6.0 on it and configured the PHP extensions.

I had serious issues getting it up and running on the different web sites so I will show you with this manual how you can easily install PHP on IIS 6.0 and troubleshoot if you have any issues.

For those who are interested here is the System Info of our new web server.
