Start >> Control Panel >> Add/Remove Programs >> Add/Remove Windows Components
Select Internet Information Services (IIS) & then Next
Then I did the following:
Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services
From the "Web Sites" folder, I right-clicked & selected properties in the "Default Web Site" & the "Default Web Site Properties" box opens.
I assigned the "Website Description" name & then in the "Home Directory" tab, I wrote C:\Web_Root in the "Local Path", AFTER creating a "Web_Root" directory. Then, in the "Documents" tab, I checked "Enable default content page" & clicked "Add" & then typed in "index.html" page, which is a page, I designed & saved in C:\Web_Root.
I've done everything as per the intruction given on one of the website.
I finally typed in "http://localhost" but am getting the page saying:
"You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied. "
Wonder if anyone around could shed some light in making things work perfectly well.
