Ok, this is just a quick guide on how to install IIS 6.0 for a web server. This is a basic guide and does not include configuration.
1.Start>Controll Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components.
2.Select Application Server as seen below, and make sure the box is checked.
3.To add optional components such as ASP .NET, FTP Server etc.. select details which will take you to the screen shown below.
4.Select the software that best fits the purpose that you will be using this web server for. For example if you need FTP select FTP. Once you have selected all the components you will need select "OK" and proceed with the install.
5.Once the installation is complete go to Start>Controll Panel>Administrative Tools>Internet Information Services(as seen below)
6.Using the IIS Manager you can now see your "Default Web Site", and it should be in the running state, as seen below.
Installation is now complete, and your website is running, configuration and setting this up for public acess is not covered in this guide, and will be needed for future reference.
If the mods/admins would agree to it, possibly make this a sticky? This would be a good beginners guide to installing IIS for the people out there who are looking for a basic guide on how to set up a web server.
