Creating an IIS website

Step 1: In IIS Manager, open the server's node in the Connections panel. Right-click the Sites folder. Select Add Website from the contextual menu.

Step 2: Specify the following values and the click OK to create the site.

  • Site name: testsite in this example

  • Physical path: C:\inetpub\testsite_root in this example. This is where the folders and files of Web APIs will be published.

  • Port: 81 in this example.


The IIS website is created and started.


Open a Web browser and run the following URLs to access the new website.
