Installing IIS 7.0 on Windows Server 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

By default, IIS 7 is not installed on Windows Server® 2008. You can install IIS by using the Add Roles wizard in Server Manager or by using the command line.

When you install Windows Server 2008, you can perform a Server Core installation, which installs a minimal server installation of Windows Server 2008. For example, with this type of installation the traditional Windows interface is not installed, so you must configure the server from the command prompt.

If you use a Server Core installation, you cannot install some modules that rely on the .NET Framework or managed code. For this reason, we also provide procedures that show how to install IIS 7 on a Windows Server 2008 Server Core installation.

Requirements

Administrative Credentials

You must be a member of the following IIS administrative role or roles to perform this procedure:

  • Web Server Administrator

You can perform this procedure using the user interface (UI) or a script.

Using the UI

  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 role.

ImportantImportant
If you use the Add Roles Wizard to install IIS, you get the default installation, which has a minimum set of role services. If you need additional IIS role services, such as Application Development or Health and Diagnostics, make sure to select the check boxes associated with those features in the Select Role Services page of the wizard.

Using a script

  • Type the following command into a script:

    start /w pkgmgr /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;IIS-HttpRedirect;IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;IIS-ASP;IIS-CGI;IIS-ISAPIExtensions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-ServerSideIncludes;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-ODBCLogging;IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-WindowsAuthentication;IIS-DigestAuthentication;IIS-ClientCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-IISCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-URLAuthorization;IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-IPSecurity;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementConsole;IIS-ManagementScriptingTools;IIS-ManagementService;IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility;IIS-Metabase;IIS-WMICompatibility;IIS-LegacyScripts;IIS-LegacySnapIn;IIS-FTPPublishingService;IIS-FTPServer;IIS-FTPManagement;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI
