Let IIS 7 return php files as simple html file

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have a virtual server (Windows 2008 R2) with IIS 7.5 and a xxx.php file in one of my websites. This php file contains no php-code and I don't want to install any php-module, I only want the server to return the content of the php file as if it was a normal .html file. I have a file with the same content named xxx.html in the same directory and that works, but instead of the php file I get a 404 error. Any ideas? (HowTos)
