Making Sure IIS 5.0 Is Running
This section provides a tutorial example on how to verify that IIS (Internet Information Services) 5.0 is up and running to provide a Web server.
Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 is a Microsoft product, that offers and manages the Internet services, like web (HTTP) server and email (SMTP) server.
IIS 5.0 is installed on Windows 2000 by default. I did the following to make sure the web server is working:
1. Go to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Services, and make sure that IIS Admin Service is Started, and World Wide web Publishing Service is Started.
2. Go to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Internet Services Manager, and make sure that the Default Web Site under your local host name is running. If not, right mouse click on Default Web Site, and select Start command.
3. Create the following hello.html file:
4. Copy hello.html to \inetpub\wwwroot, which is the directory where the web server will take the web page files.
5. Run Internet Explorer (IE) with this url: http://localhost/hello.html.
6. If you see "Hello world!" on IE window, you know your IIS web server is serving HTML pages.
