Hi, I just turn on IIS 7 on my Windows 7 Enterprise pc.  There is a Inet folder but do I add the wwwroot folder myself or is there something I need to do in the manager to configure this?  thanks.

lapucca you don't need to add any such type of things in inetpub for your reference just look for some tutorial for hosting in II7 as it is little different from previous version

Hi,

I don't think you installed it completely. If you open "Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager" from Administrative Tools, do you see a SERVER\Sites\Default Web Site installed. If so, click on it, select advanced properties and confirm the Phyiscal Path. The default is c:\inetpub\wwwroot

 http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/28/installing-iis-7-on-windows-vista-and-windows-7/

During the installation of Internet Information Services 7 (IIS 7), a default Web site configuration is created in the \Inetpub\Wwwroot directory on your Web server. You can either use this default directory to publish your Web content, or create a directory at a file system location of your choice.

After that is setup. You are more then welcome, And suggested to stop that site and create a NEW Site with a new phyiscal path.

Cheers,

I only see an icon with my pc's computer name on it.  Above it, it says Connections.
I didn't install anything.  I just "turn on" the IIS 7 from the control panel of Window 7 Enterprise.  That's the information I found on internet.  Is there further steps to be done?  Thanks.

Follow the instructions from the link provided above. If nothing is added please provide your iis7.log which is found in C:\Windows\iis7.log.
