Installing IIS On Win XP

Installing IIS(Internet Information Service) On Windows Xp

If you are running Windows XP Professional on your computer you can install Microsoft’s web server, Internet Information Server 5.1 (IIS) for free from the Windows XP Pro installation CD and configure it to run on your system by following the instructions below: –

1. Place the Windows XP Professional CD-Rom into your CD-Rom Drive.

2. Open ‘Add/Remove Windows Components’ found in ‘Add/Remove Programs’ in the ‘Control Panel’.

3. Place a tick in the check box for ‘Internet Information Services (IIS)’ leaving all the default installation settings intact.

4. Once IIS is installed on your machine you can view your home page in a web browser by typing ‘http://localhost’ (you can substitute ‘localhost’ for the name of your computer) into the address bar of your web browser. If you have not placed your web site into the default directory you should now be looking at the IIS documentation.

5. If you are not sure of the name of your computer right-click on the ‘My Computer’ icon on your desktop, select ‘Properties’ from the shortcut menu, and click on the ‘Computer Name’ tab.

6. Your default web directory to place your web site in is ‘C:Inetpubwwwroot’, but if you don’t want to over write the IIS documentation found in this directory you can set up your own virtual directory through the ‘Internet Information Services’ console.

7. The ‘Internet Information Services’ console can be found in the ‘Administration Tools’ in the ‘Control Panel’ under ‘Performance and Maintenance’, if you do not have the control panel in Classic View.

8. Double-click on the ‘Internet Information Services’ icon.

8. Once the ‘Internet Information Services’ console is open you will see any IIS web services you have running on your machine including the SMTP server and FTP server, if you chose to install them with IIS.

9. To add a new virtual directory right click on ‘Default Web Site’ and select ‘New’, followed by ‘Virtual Directory’, from the drop down list.

7. Next you will see the ‘Virtual Directory Creation Wizard’ from the first screen click the ‘next’ button.

9. You will then be asked to type in an ‘Alias’ by which you will access the virtual directory from your web browser (this is the name you will type into your web browser after ‘localhost’ to view any web pages you place in the directory).

10. Next you will see a ‘Browse…’ button, click on this to select the directory your web site pages are in on your computer, after which click on the ‘next’ button to continue.

11. On the final part of the wizard you will see a series of boxes, if you are not worried about security then select them all, if you are and want to run ASP scripts then check the first two, followed by the ‘next’ button.

12. Once the virtual directory is created you can view the web pages in the folder by typing ‘http://localhost/aliasName’ (where ‘aliasName’ is, place the alias you called the virtual directory) into the address bar of your web browser (you can substitute ‘localhost’ for the name of your computer if you wish).

In any event, the NFL draft has morphed into a 3 day extravaganza, where an industry of full time analysts has emerged to break down the physical minutiae of hundreds of young college students. It would make for entertaining viewing if it wasn’t so drawn out; still, it generally serves the purpose of allowing wretched teams to improve themselves through shrewd player selections. (As an aside, the draft has generated a quite interesting market in microeconomic analysis; given the often extravagant salary demands of the first pick, it carries less expected economic value than second round picks.)The Air Force shut down the investigation and finally wrote off the phenomena as sunspots or some new kind of meteor or something. LaPaz (their meteor expert) insisted that none of that made sense, and would continue to do so for years. The balls were spotted over and over again even after the investigation shut down, and each time someone would go interview poor Dr. LaPaz who would repeat his long list of reasons why Cheap Football Jerseys they’re not meteors.Geography plays a major role in why blackouts worked for football. NFL teams draw the bulk of their ticket buying fans from within their own geographic area. While some fans make road trips with the team (and others have extended fan bases across the country), you won’t find many Jacksonville Jaguar fans in Seattle, WA. If I’m a Jaguar fan, I probably live fairly close to Jacksonville. And if I’m a true diehard fan living near the team, I might just be inclined to buy a ticket if that’s the only way I’m going to see the game.Due in part to the proliferation of competing streaming services of what is becoming commoditized content, Netflix must invest more in proprietary Cheap Jerseys content to differentiate itself. In August, Netflix spent $2 million/episode to acquire the rights to the NBC drama The Oakley Sports Sunglasses Blacklist. More recently, Netflix announced its push into feature film development with a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and four movies with Adam Sandler.Papa John’s recently renewed its multiyear partnership deal as “The Official Pizza Sponsor” of the NFL and Super Bowl. As a sponsor, the company will use NFL logos and trademarks in its advertising and marketing campaigns across large NFL events. The company will continue to leverage stars such as JJ Watt and Peyton Manning across its TV, digital and social marketing channels. In addition, the company is the preferred pizza of 23 NFL clubs.Either way, the Lions say they want a deal in place by the time Fake Oakleys Sale the draft comes. There’s an interesting Authentic Jerseys Sale reason to take Matthew Stafford other than the fact that he’s a very good quarterback. Matthew Stafford went to the same high school in Dallas, Texas, as Bobby Lane. And Bobby Lane, Steve, as you might know, and the people in Detroit definitely do know, was the last good quarterback the Lions had. And supposedly, he laid a curse on the team when he left. So maybe by drafting Stafford, they’ll reverse the curse.
