Hi guys I am wondering if you have seen or can point me in the right direction for a guide to installing php on a windows server 2012 r2 essentials server please.

A walkthrough would be nice, while I am learning.

Many thanks

Yes I used that the first time. the only problem is this.

The latest WPI misses a lot of dependencies that are needed to be installed to get it up and running. dependencies that on a older version of WPI used to install.

You can install PHP extensions onto Microsoft IIS, this is how to guide

If you just want a development platform then as posted early wampserver is good, also XAMPP is worth a look here https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html

For an editor I use notepad++ and can be down loaded here http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

Personally I use my NAS4FREE server, I just enabled the Webservice and made the www folder a SMB share so I can cut and paste php files from my windows desktop. I'm running Dokuwiki site for development notes and misc information which I find while researching on this Webservice among others.

WAMP or XAMPP are definitely the best bets. IIS works fine, but the WAMP/XAMP stacks always feel more mature and are configured out of the box.

Install XAMPP, click start, away you go.

I'm assuming this is a non-production system... if you don't know how to install it already, you probably shouldn't be setting up a production server.
