How did you get the job in the first place if you don’t know what to do? Or, let me rephrase my question: Which is the position you got hired for? What does your work profile include? If you were hired to design and code websites (HTML/CSS) then it’s not a shame to not be proficient in back-end programming and server management. And also, it’s never a shame to ask for help. That you don’t know one thing doesn’t mean that you don’t know everything.
Now, here’s the thing: IIS is the server software by Microsoft, a rival to the Apache server, so to speak, and in corporate environments Microsoft with all their application frameworks is still very widely used where in personal and small scale businesses open source solutions like PHP are more frequent. So, I think you should rather familiarize yourself with the software your company is using rather than trying to install PHP on IIS just for your web developer needs. It’s not a shame to tell them that you used to work with Apache, PHP, and MySQL, and not with their software, so you’ll need help in order to get started. After all, you appear to be relatively new in the company, too, so that’s another good “excuse” to ask for help.
