ASP.NET Webserver from scratch RRS feed

  • User769474054 posted


    I was given a brand new Webserver with just the OS. I enabled IIS from Control panel features. Now I am not sure what software should I install to make it a web Server that hosts my ASPNET Web Application. I thought we should use WebPlatform installer to get ASP.NET web Components. not sure where to start

    I generally use Visual studio installer as it installs everything if the system needs VS but in this case, its just a web server. Where I should start?

    There is no such thing as an ASP.NET Web server. There is IIS that is a Web server on the Windows O/S platform that can host an ASP.NET Web solution. 

    If you have installed IIS on whatever version of The Windows O/S you have installed it on, then make sure you have the .NET Framework installed too.

    You best post to the IIS forum for further help concerning IIS installation and also installing and enabling ASP.NET Framework on IIS.

    Hi pavanlalit,

    As far as I know, the IIS is used to host your asp.net application.

    There is no need to install any other software.

    The IIS will contain the asp.net module.

    But, each version of IIS will contain different the .NET Framework version. 

    If you IIS is version is too old, you may not run asp.net 4.6 application.

    More details about the IIS .net framework version, you could refer to below article.


    More details about how to publish asp.net application to IIS, you could refer to below article.


    Best Regards,
