As a Web server, Microsoft Internet Information Server (MIIS) is a powerful platform that grows easier to use with each new version; but there is still plenty for a new system administrator to worry about. Written by a team of authors, Special Edition Using Internet Information Server 4 is a comprehensive guide to installing, administering, and working with IIS 4. It's a good introduction for anyone who is considering a move to the Microsoft family of Web tools.
As you might expect, the text introduces infrastructure issues, what Web servers are, and what they do. The guide also explores the relationship between IIS and NT. (The two tools work closely together, of course.) Sections on installing IIS cover the basics and look at individual Web services separately, from FTP, Mail, News, and Microsoft's NetShow services to databases with SQL Server and Index Server. Sections on daily administration of IIS, including performance tuning and troubleshooting a Web server, are also good. Finally, the book introduces the new Microsoft administration tool, the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), in detail. With plenty of screen shots and a good deal of expertise, this install guide can benefit both the raw beginner and the more experienced administrator.
Useful appendices discuss how to avoid problems with browser incompatibilities and other reference topics. Overall, this clearly written guide provides an exceptional amount of information on a popular and easy-to-use Web server platform.
