About the Related Book

Speed and ease of reference is an essential part of this hands-on guide. The book has an expanded table of contents and an extensive index for finding answers to problems quickly. Many other quick reference features have been added to the book as well. These features include quick step-by-steps, lists, tables with fast facts, and extensive cross-references. The book is broken down into both parts and chapters. The parts contain a part-opener paragraph or two about the chapters grouped in that part.

Part I “Web Administration Fundamentals” covers the fundamental tasks you need for IIS administration. Chapter 1 provides an overview of IIS administration tools, techniques and concepts. Chapter 2 explores core IIS administration. You'll learn about administration components, Windows services, Internet Services Manager and server configurations.
