Moving right along, today we start off with a discussion of some of the new features of IIS 7.0 and then we’ll get into modularization, which is a really cool element of this next generation web server.
What modularization allows us to do is build our own web server depending on our unique needs, so that we don’t have to include stuff that we know we’ll never use. So today I’ll show you how to build your own web server and how to setup a basic static website.
Here are all the details of what this video covers:
- New IIS Features — Microsoft has put a lot of work into the new IIS version and we’ll go over what the new features and functionalities of IIS 7.0 are
- Modularization — there are 40 different modules that come with IIS 7 and now you have the option to choose the ones you need; I’ll show you which ones fit into our Verde Petra scenario
- IIS Role Installation — we’ll install the web server role so you can see all the steps that are involved and I’ll also explain the Web Process Activation Service
- Selection of Modules — next we’ll take a look at the available modules and select and customize a few of them for our example
- IIS Manager — we will also explore the IIS Manager so you can see how it functions and where the module settings are located in case you need to change them
- Browsing Your New Site — finally we will add files to our site and browse the site to make sure it’s operational
