I am wanting to create a simple login page for a website I have created in Dreamweaver. I understand that to do this I need to install IIS - I have tried doing this but don't seem to be able to get the permissions right to enable it. I am using Windows XP Pro (downgraded from Vista) and installed IIS via the control panel.
Following some instructions I found I have:
Installed all elements of IIS from the control panel
Created an Access database file in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\dreamwe
Tried to give IIS permission to use my database by going into the folder (_database) properties, adding a user called COMPUTER\IUSR_COMPUTER (where COMPUTER is the name of my computer), checked Modify. I then went into Advanced and tried to select the Replace Permission Entries on All Child Objects... option, but when I clicked OK got a box saying "This will remove explicitly defined permissions on all child objects and enable propagation of inheritable permissions to thouse child objects. Only inheritable permissions propogated from _database will take effect. Do you wish to continue?" - I clicked yes but it automatically unchecked the box again. I tried this several times but have not been able to get it to accept the setting.
My instructions then tell me to check whether IIS is enabled by typing http://localhost
in my browser address bar - I get a "The webserver cannot display the page" message so assume it isn't!
I have AVG Internet Security installed on the computer. Don't know if this is an issue.
Can anyone help please? Thanks in advance
