Configuring Web Sites in IIS 6.0

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The IIS WWW service allows you to publish content on the Internet or an intranet. You can publish a static Web site or a dynamic application. The primary function of the WWW service is to connect client Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests to your Web site or sites. The WWW service is installed at SystemDrive:\Windows\System32by default when you start IIS.

If you want to install the WWW service somewhere other than at the default location, you must use an unattended installation answer file and specify the alternative path using the PathWWWRoot parameter. For more information, see Appendix E: Unattended Setup.

For more information about the WWW service and IIS core components, see IIS 6.0 Architecture.
