This tutorial covers the steps of the IIS 5 installation under Windows 2000 Professional. There are many screenshots to show the user around. Don't get stuck - it is easier than you think! This is what you will read in this tutorial:
- Introductory Notes (please read, important!)
- Installing IIS 5.0
- Configuring the Web Server
- Further Information
When I bought a new computer, I found
myself stuck with Windows 2000 Professional because now I had to use the Internet
Information Server (IIS). before, I had worked with Windows 98 and the Personal
Web Server. For this later combination, there are lots of tutorials.
However, when I tried to find information about how to install the IIS, I wasn't so lucky ... But I need a local server to test my UltraDev applications!
The information I give away in this tutorial are based on what I found basically in the Microsoft newsgroups, on several mailing lists, and in the different search engines. So big thanks to everybody who known or unknown helped me with installing and configuring IIS :-)
I guess there are tutorials on that, however, I am not aware of them.
Now, it is important to know that I am German. For this reason, I am using the German version of UltraDev 4. So please don't be angry at me if the screenshots I am going to provide are held in German. I will use the English vocabulary in the text. I hope that is fair enough and you will be able to follow.
If there are any questions, don't hesitate to send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, please excuse my English - especially those whose mother tongue I am "violating" here ...
Ok, now on to the first step, installing the IIS.
