Hi guys, well, I already post this question in Windows Xp Networking and

Web, but didn't knew about this news group :P. Anyways, I just want to

know if there are guides about setting up an IIS server on Windows Xp

for static web pages, like:

picture gallery

information site

dumb stuff for my kids, they want to setup a site for the dog lol...

The picture gallery is my idea, because I like photography, but the main

problem is the space, my isp only gives me 5Mb, so I thought, why not

setting up a server for myself at home. I got a small file server, with

Windows Xp Sp1 and the IIS already installed, I got Front PAge 2003 in a

laptop, right now making the web page, but the questions are:

how do I upload the information?

how do I get the IIS working?

Thanks for the help.

      You can use FrontPage Extensions (There's a newsgroup/forum for those

      as well...) or you could use FTP, copy across netowrk shares, put the

      files on a floppy, basically any way you can get the files to the web

      root for your site.

      How do you know it isn't?

      You install IIS, and it's there and working. Test it from the server

      by typing in your broser:

      http://localhost/

      Test it from the remote systm by using the server's name or IP address

      instead of "localhost". Let us know if that doesn't work and tell us

      the full error message if you get one.

    • Well, I kinda messed up witht the configuration, because I downloaded the

      lock down tool and now I don't know what do to. IT gives me this error:

      Directory Listing Denied

      This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

      And well, I am unable to post my web using front page :/

      Also, there are some other stuff but, first, how can I get the IIS resetted

      to the default, all of it.? reinstalling?

      [UPDATE] I reinstalled and everything now works in the default way :)

      I could copy the files using the Front Page Remote Site utility, and it

      load up just the way I like, also found out of the sub-sites thing,

      pretty neat to manage different sites under a main one.

      But there is something that bothers me, why when I hit "publish" it tell

      me that the server is disk based? even though using the "copy" function

      of the Front Page I can upload all just fine? glitch? or some cable

      loose? Or copying is the right way?

      Rerun the lockdown tool to undo the changes. Then look at:

      URLScan:

      http://microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/tools/tools/urlscan.asp

      http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;318290

      http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;307976

      http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;817807

      http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;325864

      Is directory listing denied on the virtual directory? By default it

      normally is, check the properties on the directory in the IIs MMC.

      For FrontPage publishing, check the FrontPage group. And make sure

      you installed the FrontPage Extensions and extended them to the web.
