  • iis 6.0

    Hi,

    I would like to install IIS 6.0 just to learn how to use it, would you please provide me with information. how to install it and also how can i secure it. because i heard it is important to know the security part of the installation otherwise my server will be wide open for viruses.

    I hope to hear from you soon,

    Thank you,

    Joe D.

    In order to install IIS 6.0 you'll first need to have Win2003 installed. Assuming you have done this, you can use the server management wizard to install IIS. From the wizard at the top choose add a role, then proceed through the wizard to the list of roles. Select Application Server, and install it.

    Once installed it is fairly secure by default, but you'll need to run Windows Update to patch the OS. You can add additional security to IIS by downloading and installing URLScan [some believe this isn't necessary, but it can't hurt], then reading the IIS Resource Kit to learn about IIS.

      P.S. do you happen to know a good site that teaches about IIS 6.0 for beginers.

        Sorry, but I don't. Try Google perhaps? If you can't find anything there then my suggestion would be to mess around with it. If and when you have questions you can ask here on this forum, or at http://www.dslreports.com web developer's forum.

        If you're familiar with IIS 5.1 (built into XP) the interface hasn't changed much.
