    Can you install IIS services on Windows XP home/Professional?
    Probably a silly question, but thought I would ask.

    You can install on XP Pro, but its limited to 10 connections and various other things, infact its fairly pants on XP, you need Server really.

    Re: Installing IIS

    Its not for anything radical and its only going to be a short term fix, until a new machine arrives at which point I will run Linux/Apache. Can you do it on XP home?

    Re: Installing IIS

    I recommend the WAMP package for Windows - Apache with MySQL and PHP.

    Re: Installing IIS

    As I want to test some asp at the moment, with a database.

    Is it just not worth bothering with? I have googled it and seems like a lot of hassle to get xphome to do it. Might be easier to pay for 1 months Windows Hosting.

    Anyone know of an easy way of doing it?

    No, not on XP Home. IIS with XP Pro is also only designed for testing purposes - not live sites.

    I assume you realise that *nix / Apache isn't going to be all that much help to you for hosting ASP too?

    Re: Installing IIS

    Yeah I know that linux/apache won't be much use. I am only testing an ASP site at the moment. Which is why I need a temporary IIS fix.

    O well, thanks for your help.
