I always been about Linux webservers.
I need to make a simple page for intranet users. I was reading a guide how to setup a webpage in IIS.
But as far as I understand it doesn't capable of simply reading html files?
How can I use simple html pages, or php applications? If IIS isn't capable for PHP, could someone provide a small third party application, which could be easy on system resources?
The server which I am dealing with is Windows Server 2003
Thanx for anything!
I've followed this guide as suggested below. THat guide described pretty the same what I was doing before:
- I've navigated to IIS 6 administration,
- Created a website by the help of wizard,
- Set the home directory,
- The home directory contains one simple file, index.html which simply should display hello.
- I clicked "Browse" in ISS manager, to view the site. No results.
I know that the ISS works fine, there is Sharepoint services running on the same amchine..
What I am missing here?
I am attaching a screenshot of all my sites on that machine.
I solved this problem, it appears that IIS didn't like my host header value. It was set to wiki.local
One last question though, how can I setup, so that the page could be accessed by some kind of wording. Like wiki.local for example.
I believe these are the settings in DNS manager in windows server? Or can't it be done at all?
