Installing IIS 5.0 on Win2000 Advenced Server

Planning on doing the above.
Does IIS 5.0 come with Win2000 Advanced Server? I've read in my book that IIS is part of an Option pack

Does ASP run automitically in IIS?

Can you direct me to a site that offers a detailed step-by-step intallation and setting up in order to serve a web site?

IIS comes as an option pack only in Windows NT 4.0. If you are installing IIS on Windows 2000, all you need to do is to go to add/remove programs and add/remove windows components. Then just choose Internet Information Server (IIS) and click on OK. You don't even have to reboot.

You can place your web site files under c:\inetpub\wwwroot\.

That's all you need to do and asp pages do run "out of the box".

I do however suggest that you purchase some books on IIS or get the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit to learn about IIS as much as possible before getting to detailed.

I would also suggest that you go to WindowsUpdate and get all the fixes and security updates.

I hope this helps

Thanks, that is helpful. I have all my code running on PWS/Win98 and I am about to migrate all to Win2000 Server so it appears pretty simple, from what you've said.

One dumb question - what about security issues, like preventing someone from entering the server and browsing the hdd. Is it just setting a Windows password?

I think I do need to purchase a book on this.

Go to Computer Management>Services and Applications>Internet Information Service>Web Sites>Default Web Site and right click on Default Web Site. Choose Propertiesand choose the Home Directory tab.

You can disable Directory Browsing. By default this is already turned off. Let me know if you need more than that. Glad to help!
