Process for Deploying an IIS 6.0 Web Server
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
The IIS 6.0 deployment process is written for Web server administrators who are responsible for installing and configuring IIS on new or existing servers. The sections in this guide can be divided into two main deployment scenarios:
Deploying a new Web server running Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0
Upgrading or migrating to a Web server running Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0
Figure 1.1 illustrates the sections in this guide that correspond to these scenarios.
|You can 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.
