Help installing IIS 6 on Windows 2003 Server Ent.

Recommended Posts

I have windows 2003 enterprise setup on my workstation and I would like to run a webserver. After installing IIS6 from Add Remove Windows Components, IIS refuses to function. I had it working on this system prior to a reformat, so I know it does work on this machine. After installing IIS the World Wide Web Publishing service does not show up in services.msc, as it did before. When I try to start IIS Admin serviec I get the following error:

Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

My services are heavily tweaked and I think the problem might stem from it, here is the configuration:

Auto:

-Cryptographic Services

-DHCP

-Event Log

-HHTP SSL

-IIS Admin

-Network Connections

-PnP

-Remote Procedure Call

-Security Accounts Manager

-Windows Audio

-Windows Managment Instrumentation

-Workstation

Manual:

-Applicaion Managment

-Machine Debug Manager

-RPC Locator

-Windows Installer

-Windows Managment Instrumentation Driver Ex

Disabled:

-everything else

Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Urfage

Why not install it using the add a role function, then tweak it from there? I have had complete success doing that.

Unless you really want IIS, i would strongly recommend you go with something like Abyss Web Server

other wise, click start, then manage your server. click add/remove a role, then find the option to install a webserver.

hi,

I tried to add the role for installing IIS on WINDOWS SERVER 2003. it failed !!

In the log file it say

(Configurations for an Application Server

IIS could not be installed on this server.

To install IIS, try running the Configure Your Server Wizard again, or use Add or Remove Programs. )

I tried both ways mentioned in the log. and still not working.

any suggestions?

Reset your services configuration to default, that will be the best to start with.
