Deploying a Classic ASP Server (IIS 7)

Updated: May 24, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

A Classic ASP Web server is the common configuration used for serving server-side scripted ASP pages. The Classic ASP server configuration adds IIS modules for ASP, Request Filtering, and ISAPI extensions to the default IIS 7 Web server installation. This topic describes how to install the IIS modules that are required to deploy a Classic ASP Web server.

noteNote
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to perform this task.

The following table describes the IIS modules that are added to the default installation for a Classic ASP Web server.

 

IIS module name Description

ASP

Enables your Web server to host Classic ASP applications.

Request Filtering

Performs UrlScan tasks such as configuring allowed verbs and file name extensions, setting limits, and scanning for bad character sequences.

ISAPI Extensions

Supports dynamic Web content development using ISAPI extensions.

noteNote
You can also run ASP.NET on the same server, but this scenario specifically covers only the modules required for Classic ASP. For more information about the ASP.NET scenario, see Deploying an ASP.NET Server (IIS 7).

You can use the Web Platform Installer (Web PI) to easily install IIS, and applications that run on IIS. Because the Web PI installs the latest versions of available Web Platform offerings, with just a few simple clicks you can download and install any new tools or updates. To learn more about the Web PI, see Learn more and install the Web PI.

You can also perform this procedure by using the Windows user interface (UI) or from a command line.

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

  2. In Roles Summary, click Add Roles.

  3. Use the Add Roles Wizard to add the Web Server (IIS) role.

    For detailed instructions about how to install a default IIS 7 Web server, see Deploying a Static Content Server (IIS 7).

  4. On the Select Role Services page, note the preselected role services that are installed by default, and then select the following additional role services:

    • ASP

    • Request Filtering

  5. On the Summary of Features to Install page, confirm your selections, and then click Install.

  6. On the Installation Results page, confirm that your installation of the Web Server (IIS) role and required role services completed successfully, and then click Close.

  7. To verify that IIS installed successfully, type the following into a Web browser:

    http://localhost

    You should see the default IIS 7 Welcome page.

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off.

    • ASP

    • Request Filtering

    • ISAPI Extensions

  4. Click OK to close the Windows Features dialog box.
