Ready IIS at Windows 7–with only 2 steps

Installing IIS 7 on Windows Vista and Windows 7 This must be familiar to most of the developer and deployment guys. And I admit that, this is still my favorite way to install IIS.

But today, in order to simplify the deployment process. I keep digging and found a useful way to do what we need.

This bunch of scripts doing the job now. Those features name are quite understandable. Simply save this to a batch (.bat) file and now the steps become

  1. Right click on the Install_IIS.bat.
  2. Select “Run as administrator”.

Ok, now it reduced few pages of our installation guide. In-fact, we make it even more “environment friendly” by keep scripting.

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /name:"ASP.NET 2.0 Pool" /managedRuntimeVersion:v2.0 /managedPipelineMode:Integrated
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /name:"ASP.NET 4.0 Pool" /managedRuntimeVersion:v4.0 /managedPipelineMode:Integrated

These scripts replace the steps needed to create the Application Pools.

netsh http add sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:443 certstorename=MY certhash=1C14B3461348AD3CB270BEA7316963AEC5C2B6B4 appid={5a599f4f-02dc-4120-8646-74fcbc5b4827}

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/sites /+"[name='Default Web Site'].bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:']" /commit:apphost

These scripts prepare us the HTTPS binding with the predefined cert.

Awesome! Computer is doing the job and we are looking for more scripting now. Open-mouthed smile
