Installing IIS

After you’ve decided which IIS services to install, you’ll need to log on as Administrator or as a Computer Administrator user. Then follow these steps:

1.
Click Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs. Select Add/Remove Windows Components from the left pane.

2.
Scroll down the Components list and check Internet Information Services (IIS). Click Details, and deselect any components you have chosen not to install. The following list provides some recommendations for installing IIS:

Component Should You Install?
Common Files required
Documentation yes
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server probably not
FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions yes
Internet Information Services Snap-In yes
SMTP Service optional
Visual InterDev RAD Remote Deployment optional
World Wide Web Service required


If you select World Wide Web Service and click Details, you can make additional selections:

Component Should You Install?
Printers virtual directory yes
Remote Desktop Web Connection yes
Scripts Virtual Directory optional
World Wide Web Service required


If you change your mind about using any of these services, you can always select Add or Remove Windows Components again later on.

Note

If you had FrontPage Extensions installed under an earlier version of Windows that you upgraded to Windows XP, you must still manually choose to install the FrontPage Extensions, and reconfigure them afterward. They are not automatically upgraded and configured.

3.
If you want to search the IIS online documentation or want to use site-searching for your own content, be sure that the Indexing Service is also installed. It’s listed just above Internet Information Services in the Windows component list.

4.
When you’ve selected all of the desired IIS components, click Next to complete the Windows Components Wizard. You may be asked to insert your Windows XP Installation CD-ROM.
