IIS Pre-Article

Welcome to CodeSpread!

I thought of sharing few articles on IIS so when I started my mission, I realized that there should be some basic tasks related to IIS which needs to be done by the user before diving deep into IIS, So here is the first pre-article.

Check whether IIS is installed or not?

  • Go to Start->Run type inetmgr and press OK
Run-IIS

Run-IIS

  • Check, if this screen appears.
IIS-Panel

IIS-Panel

 

Second way to check.

  • Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > and look for IIS in the list of installed components.
Programs-Panel

Programs-Panel

Third way to check.

  • Go to Run->Services.msc and enter
  • check for the IIS ADMIN service in this services window.
Service-Panel

Service-Panel

 

If any of these options doesn’t show the desired screen , Either IIS is not enabled or installed or corrupted.

How can IIS be turned ON?

  • Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off > Check IIS box.

Installation of IIS:

IIS is tightly coupled to operating system on which it is going to run for ex:

5.0 Built-in component of Windows 2000. Windows 2000
5.1 Built-in component of Windows XP Professional. Windows XP Professional
6.0 Built-in component of Windows Server 2003. WIndows Server 2003
7.0 Built-in component of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Windows Vista and WIndows Server 2008
7.5 Built-in component of Windows Server 2008 R2/ Windows7 [Not basic edition]

refer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224609

So, our headache is over, there is no need to install IIS as it comes with IIS pre-installed, we just have to turn it ON.

Thanks Guys! Wait for the IIS article.
