Configuring and administering IIS 7.0

Configuring and administering IIS 7.0

Windows Server 2008 has introduced a number of significant changes from Windows Server 2003, and IIS 7.0 is a prime example. Not only has IIS's architecture changed considerably in IIS 7.0, but the management interface is also completely revamped. That said, to maintain a level of backward compatibility with IIS 6.0, the IIS role in Windows Server 2008 includes the IIS 6.0 management console, but that is not the focus here. This gallery shows some of the common screens you'll encounter while administering and configuring IIS 7.0.

In Windows Server 2008, you can access the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager via the Server Manager or from Start | Administrative Tools | Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. If, for some reason, you need to use the IIS 6 management tools, go to Start | Administrative Tools | Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager. The screen below gives you a look at the new IIS management interface.
