How to setup & run IIS 7 on Vista Home Premium
Posted on 2008-02-05
Can someone tell me how to set up IIS 7 on Vista Home Premium? I have no experience of IIS 7, but have managed to setup IIS 5 and run ASP.NET 2 on XP Pro. It took a while, but I got it working fine.
I now need to be able to test php & aspx pages locally, so I am trying to set up my laptop to do this. Is it possible to get IIS and XAMPP running alongside each other or would it be easier to set up PHP & MySQL on IIS 7?
I use Dreamweaver and as you probably know, once you've set the testing server up you can just hit F12 and the page is displayed. I like this feature. Would this still work if I have them running side by side? How would I set the localhost to look at htdocs and inetpub folders? Is that possible?
