Configuring IIS For Dynamic Content

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2

When you install IIS 6.0, it is locked down—only request handling for static Web pages is enabled, and only the World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW service) is installed. By default, features, such as ASP, ASP.NET, Server-Side Includes Events, WebDAV publishing, and FrontPage® Server Extensions do not work unless they are enabled. If you do not enable this functionality after installing IIS, IIS returns a 404 error.

noteNote
If you install the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 development system with IIS 6.0 to host Web applications or XML Web services, you must enable ASP and FrontPage Server Extensions.

You can configure these request handlers, which are called Web service extensions, by manipulating the Web Service Extensions node in IIS Manager.
