PHP Class or Function for the creation of Microsoft IIS web site and Microsoft DNS entry to add to an existing PHP script:

A full web site creation process already exists written in PHP and executed from an anonymous browser connection taking input from a completed browser-based table. This currently creates all of the file directories, creates the configuration files, creates the MySQL database and copies master MySQL table content into the new database and a number of other steps. The final two steps in the MS IIS web site and MS DNS creation process require to be automated as part of this existing script. The existing script has all of the setup information and can pass the appropriate parameters to the IIS and DNS creation processes. These two steps need to be added to the existing PHP script to complete the automation of the entire new web site process. Please ensure that your PHP solution to create an IIS web site and MS DNS entries can execute from an anonymous user or alternatively give the entire solution allowing these final two steps to be automated as part of this single operation PHP to create new web sites. The solution can be a new class or function called with the appropriate parameters. The environment is Windows Server 2003, IIS, PHP5.

The new DNS entry will be a subdomain of an existing MS DNS entry and not an entirely new Forward Lookup Zone. The script will require to create two new HOST A Records to be inserted into the existing MS DNS system for the domain
