Installing IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

By default, IIS 7.5 is not installed on Windows Server® 2008 R2. You can install IIS 7.5IIS by using the Add Roles wizard in Server Manager or by using the command line.

You can also use the Web Platform Installer (Web PI) to easily install IIS, and applications that run on IIS. The Web PI is a free, lightweight tool that lets you install IIS and related technologies such as ASP.NET, SQL Server Express, Visual Web Developer, other popular Web applications, and more. 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.

When you install Windows Server 2008 R2, you can perform a Server Core installation, which installs a minimal server installation of Windows Server 2008 R2. For example, with this type of installation the traditional Windows interface is not installed, so you must configure the server from the command prompt.
