To begin the installation of IIS 7, go to Start -> Server Manager. Scroll down to Rolls Summary, and click Add Roles.
You will be presented with the Add Roles Wizard. This wizard will guide you through the installation of IIS 7.
When on the Server Roles page, you will be able to select which roles you wish to install. In our situation, we want to install Web Server (IIS).
In order to setup the IIS web server, you will have to install a few additional features as well. You just have to click Add Required Features to install those as well.
After choosing to install IIS, you will be presented with an introduction to the web server, which will tell you a bit about the server itself. You don’t have to read it, but you may find the information helpful to know.
After reading the IIS introduction, you will have an opportunity to custom your IIS install. You can include services such as ASP.NET, ASP, CGI, SSI, among many others.
Before the actual IIS installation takes place, you will be presented with a summary of what will be installed. After reviewing the information, click Install to finally install the server.
The server installation process can take a while. The speed really depends on the server you are installing it on. It isn’t a bad time to take a coffee break or something of that sort.
After the installation has completed, you will be presented with the Installation Results page. Hopefully it tells you everything has been installed successfully.
After starting the IIS server, you will be able to test it on http://localhost/!
