Deploying the Web Server
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
You must install the Web server before you can install your ASP.NET applications. In addition to installing Windows Server 2003, you must install and configure IIS 6.0 on the Web server. You must also enable ASP.NET so that the Web server can run ASP.NET applications.
|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. To learn more about the Web PI, see Learn more and install the Web PI.|
