Overview of Deploying IIS 6.0
Updated: June 22, 2009
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
To deploy Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0, you must identify the key design and deployment processes that you must complete for your IIS 6.0 solution. This guide provides prescriptive, task-based, and scenario-based guidance to help you design an IIS 6.0 solution and then deploy that solution within your organization. After you deploy and secure your IIS 6.0 solution as a platform for your Web applications, you can then deploy your Web applications. However, the target audience of this guide is Web server administrators, not developers. Modifying Web applications is a developer-related activity and is described in other topics. It is not covered in this guide.
