Need multiple sites on IIS under windows XP?






If you use windows XP and you need to have several sites under IIS, then you are in the same situation that I'm, but I found a solution and I want to share it with you.

The IIS under windows has some limitations because is supose that XP is not a server OS, just a workstation OS.
Because of this the biggest limitation is that you "can't create sites".
Well, let me tell you that this is not actually true, the IIS console doesn't have an option to create sites, but you do can create them, the only real limitation is that you can't have more than one site running on the same time.
Here I bring to you two free tools to create and manage sites in IIS under windows XP.
This tool has being a great help for me and I know it will be a great help to you too.

XP PRO IIS Admin
http://www.jetstat.com/iisadmin/

IIsAdmin.Net
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/IIsAdminNet.asp

Both tools will allow you to create sites, switch between the sites, start, stop them, restar IIS and some other features.

Take a look at them, are really good and simple tools.

Best regards,
Feto
