Configure IIS in your local machine

IIS stands for Internet Information Services.
To know about IIS you can follow this two links from Wikipedia and TechTarget  or you can visit official IIS site by Microsoft.

In this article I will show you how to configure the IIS(Internet Information Services) in your local machine to run websites.

First you have to set the IIS from your Control Panel. And for that go to Program section within control panel. Within program there is an option called Turn Windows Features On or Off.

Click on that link a window will open with a heading of Windows Features.

Now on that window find the Internet Information Services option and do following steps...
  1. Within Web Management Tools check the IIS management console.
  2. And then within IIS management compatibility check the IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility.

Now click on the OK button to save the configuration. It may take 2-3 minutes to save it.

Now to run the IIS go to Run and type inetmgr and click OK.

Now the IIS window will open.

Enjoy IIS.
