Installing Internet Information Server

Installing Internet Information Server

Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional users should install Internet Information Server (IIS).

If you’re a Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional user, check whether IIS is already installed and running on your system. The way to do this is to look for the C:\Inetpub folder. If it doesn’t exist, IIS is probably not installed on your system.

To install IIS on Windows 2000 and XP Professional:

  1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs, or Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Select Add/Remove Windows Components.
  3. Select Internet Information Services (IIS) and click Next.
  4. Follow the installation instructions.

You can test the web server after installing it. See Testing IIS.
