ZendPHP for Windows

With this release, the Zend team has been working to ensure it supports your ecosystem.


All binaries are 64-bit builds, created using Visual Studio 2017.

We provide thread-safe binaries that can be used with Apache, as well as non-thread-safe versions for use with FastCGI (e.g., with Windows Internet Information Service (IIS) or nginx).

Extensions and Integrations

We provide more than 70 extensions. The bulk of these come either built-in and configuredby default, or shipped with the standard distribution. This includes Windows-specific extensions such as com_dotnet, wddx, and win32service.

You should be able to integrate your PHP applications with any API, database, or caching service you normally do with community-sourced binaries.

For a full list, please see our extension matrix.

In regards to web servers, you get to choose the web server that suits your organizational needs.


This marks the first LTS distribution of PHP for Windows. Our LTS promise is to backport security patches from community versions (currently PHP 7.4, 8.0, and 8.1) to our LTS versions. In addition, per our previously published LTS roadmap, we are providing LTS editions of PHP 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3.

If your organization has concerns about security and cannot update your applications at the same pace of development as the language, we are your source for secure PHP runtimes!
