Settng up websites on Win2k/IIS5

By GeekGyrrrl ·
I need some assistance. We are a small nonprofit that hosts webs for customers. I have recently been thrown into the position of managing the webserver running on Win2K/IIS5. The regular administrator walked off the job. So, I have to set up new domains for customers.

When I set up the domains like the microsoft documentation says, the domains are not available to be uploaded to.

Is there more to this than just following the microsoft documentation? I don't remember having to add any xxx.xxx.xxx.xx addresses anywhere and this seems very important for websites that are to be hosted.

I am at my wits end as I do not have proper training for this job and no one else around here has, either. Can anyone help me muddle my way through this? Like maybe a step by step article published somewhere???

Hi,

are the DNS-Server records pointing to the IP-Adresses of the webserver where they are installed?

You can try this by using in a cmd window:
nslookup www.yourdomainname.com
it should give out the IP address of the webserver.
If it doesn't, you need to configure your DNS server or contact the company that manages DNS for you.

If the IP resolves correctly, try to upload on the IP address (e.g. ftp 10.11.12.13, whatever your ip is).
if this doesn't work, the ftp/iis service does not work correctly, if it works, you may need to configure host headers in IIS to make it respond to the request.

hope this helps.

humm need some more information like what actually does "domains are not available to be uploaded to" actually mean? Are you trying to allow remote users to upload to your web server to edit/change their web sites? do you have NTFS file system? are those users given permission to read/write/full control? What permissions are stated in the server extensions?

To narrow down the problem, can public users [internet users] view the web sites you create?
