missing world wide web publishing service

I am a newbie towards win2k server configuration. After installing IIS, I cannot find the world wide web publishing service (in contrast, I can find the FTP publishing service).

1) Would I need such service in order to start my web server?
2) What do I need to install in order to have such service?
3) Is there any good installation guide to explain the procedures to install/configure a server?

Thank you in advance.

If you have installed it will install the service and set it to RUN AT STARTUP AUTOMATICALLY. No further configuration is needed.

BTW, Did you check for existence of the following:


Service Name - W3SVC
Service Display Name - World Wide Web Publishing Service
Service Description - Provides Web connectivity and administration through the Internet Information Services snap-in.

Are you sure you do not have this?

Thanks RanjeetRain. I guess I should clarify the situation:

1) From the following

Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Services and Applications -> Services

I cannot see the World Wide Web Publishing Service

2) I did a serach and find W3SVC in C:\IC386.

Therefore I am wondering:

a) If anyone has seen this situation before?
b) Do I need to reinstall my server?
c) Otherwise what is the alternative?

Thanks.

This doesn't ever happen. This is hard to believe. Probably it couldn't get installed. Because if it was installed, it will be at least listed under the services.

I recommend reinstalling.

After further searching, there is not much option but to reinstall IIS. In this occasion, I notice that the installation is not successful, even though I have already shutdown all the services.

I have just reinstall win2k completely. Now I am doing regular backup. Thanks for your help.
