Apex on Thoth Gateway and IIS 7

Several people have asked for instructions on how to run the Thoth Gateway (a mod_plsql replacement) on Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 7.

I finally had the chance (and the time!) to test the configuration on a server running IIS 7. The biggest challenge was understanding the new administration console user interface for IIS 7; it was was slightly confusing for someone who is used to IIS 6.

After a bit of fiddling, I got the gateway up and running:

I have updated the installation instructions in the latest download package (version 1.2.1) with separate sections for IIS 6 and IIS 7. So download, unzip and read the instructions in the "doc" folder.

And leave a comment if you run into problems (or leave a comment if you managed to get it up and running using the instructions!).
