A, as in singular, yes. Cant host multiple sites though.

Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | Add/Remove Windows Components | Internet Information Services

then place all your files in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot and there you go.

To manage IIS:

Start | Settings | Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Microsoft IIS if you dont have Administrative Tools in your start menu.

Also, it has to be XP Pro edition. XP Home won't let you run IIS.

With linux you can do virtual hosting and host as many domains as you want on 1 ip, its free, more secure, better stability, more expandibility and you dont have to worry about having a bad ass comptuer to run your sites.

IIS is very easy, I set up a webserver in less than 5 minutes. I do have a question though, I am not sure how to set up a mail server, do you know how this is done?

just a quick note... XP will only allow 5 concurrent connections... so if you want more traffic than that... go with 2000 server or linux.

I just read on Microsofts website that the IIS 5.1 that comes with WinXP will allow 10 simultaneous connections. I need more than that, I have not been able to gain access to my website all morning. Looks like I may need to upgrade or go back Abyss web server.

Does Apache Win32 support frontpage extensions? I am looking for a freebie that supports these, my current one (Abyss) doesn't and IIS 5.1 for WinXP only allows 10 connections.

not sure on that one.

you should be ashamed of using front page extensions

Not only is it messy but it opens up lots of security risks.

By default I don't install them unless a gun is held to my head.

Well I have limited or no knowledge in PHP, Perl or ASP. So I do what I can. Now if someone wants to create a couple of e-mail forms that I can paste into my webpage the go right ahead.

Combination of RH9, Apache and Webmin makes live quite easy. Now if they just could get that bandwidth mod available for latest Apache everything would be set.

Anyone know how to limit upload for Apache? I've tried searching all over the web but nothing really does this unless you're running older version of Apache.
