Kelli Adam, founder and president of ConnectOS Corporation, a Seattle-based ISP and key Microsoft partner, has used her considerable experience with IIS as the basis for this book: the first real-world guide to setting up, configuring, maintaining, securing, and troubleshooting IIS in a Windows NT/2000 environment.
Written for experienced Web server administrators, as well as for first-time IIS administrators and Web hosting company operators, Internet Information Services Administration highlights the best practices for running IIS in small- and large-scale environments and explains when and why to use specific options. It deals with such practical concerns as installing and managing IIS, integrating IIS with Windows 2000 security options, customizing Web sites and the FTP service, running Web applications, connecting to databases, and managing log files. Its real-world recommendations make this book an invaluable resource to those upgrading or migrating to IIS 5.
