Getting plesk to Recognize PHP after install?

    I've got a bit of a problem, i'm wondering if anyone on here has any ideas?

    Mysql 5.0 and php 5 is already installed, configured and working, I then installed plesk 8.2 without php (as it was already installed, or so i thought).

    Now Php is not showing up in the server/components management section in Plesk, any ideas on what i need to change?

    Is this possible? Help!!!!

    first, try to run the following command:

    C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\admin\bin>defpackagemng.exe --fix --type=webserver

    Then go to Plesk CP -> Server -> Components and click "Refresh"

    Hello phil54,

    In order to Plesk does recognize installed PHP5 the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\PHP\5 should contain string value named IniFilePath which should be a full path to the directory containing php.ini. This file should contain directive extension_dir pointing to the full path to the PHP extensions directory. The directory with PHP extensions should be in the directory where PHP5 is installed.
