Installing ASP & Web ServerJust as we have seen before, for running ASP we need a web server, which need not be an external. We can install web server in our PC. Microsoft provides web servers such as Personal Web Server (PWS) which can be run on any Windows95/98, NT or 2000 workstation and Internet Information Server (IIS) for Windows NT or Windows 2000 based web servers.
Installing Personal Web Server (PWS)Personal Web Server ships with Windows 98 CD, you can find it in add-ons folder present in the Windows 98 CD. If you are using Windows 95, you have to download "Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack" from Microsoft.
Download "Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack"
If you don't have Windows 98 CD with you, no problem. You can download it from Microsoft's web site for free.
Download "Personal Web Server"
Installing Personal Web Server on Windows 98:
To check if PWS is running, open your Internet Explorer. In the URL box enter https://127.0.0.1 or https://localhost and press Enter. If everything is working fine, you will see a default page generated by PWS. If you can see any page then PWS is running correctly or else you have to restart your computer and start PWS again and continue the same process. Hopefully everything will be alright now.
Installing IIS on Windows 2000:
Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is a web server that integrates into the Windows NT Server so no need to download from any where. If you haven't install IIS during installation of Windows 2000, then follow the below steps to install IIS.
