Managing Local IIS Server

By Lex Li

This page shows you how to manage the local IIS server in Jexus Manager.

In this article:

Background

Jexus Manager is designed to be compatible with Microsoft IIS Manager.

Local IIS Server

When local IIS is installed, Windows creates its configuration file at %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config.

If Jexus Manager detects this file, a default server with the machine name is automatically created.

Attention

You have to run Jexus Manager as administrator so as to see the local IIS server node.

Next Step

Once a server is there, sites and applications can be managed by choosing one of the categories in the middle panel.

Note

If the server node is not yet expanded for management, double click the node so that Jexus Manager tries to load its configuration.
