Installing the Web Server Role (IIS) on Windows Server 2012


 « »    


Launch Server Manager


Click on Manage then select Add Roles and Features


Click Next on the Before you Begin screen


On the Installation Type screen select Role-based or feature-based installation then press Next


On the Server Selection screen select the server in this case we are installing on the local server which is SP2013, press Next


On the Server Roles screen, check the dcheckbox next to Web Server (IIS)


Press Add Features


Web Server (IIS) should now be checked off, press Next


On the Features screen, add any additional features you want installed. In my case I added .NET Framework 3.5 Features

Press Next


Press Next


On the Role Services screen, add any IIS components you want installed. I almost always need to add the Windows Authentication role service

Press Next once you have made your selection(s)


Verify all of the components are correct and press Install


You can close the wizard which will not affect the installation. If you keep it open you will be able to monitor the progress of the installation and press Close when it completes.


After the installation is complete you will find the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager under Administrative Tools
