Windows 7: Host a Website - IIS7.5

Hi,

When you change your router settings try reserving a particular IP address for your machine then when/if something (like a reboot/power cut) changes your IP address then the settings you've set for the "Send to LAN server" parameter. And, make sure that IIS is properly configured to your IPv4 address like the image below...

The 2 exceptions you will need to configure are

'Outbound service' - Always allow HTTP(TCP:80)
'Inbound Service' - Always allow HTTP(TCP:80) and 'Send to lan server' within that (enter your IPv4 address)
Hope it helps

I am trying to follow these steps and I have a couple of domains registered with GoDaddy, what would I have to do differently to be able to redirect them to my house? Just put then no-ip address in the Go Daddy redirect and then it should bounce to my computer?

Update #1: As of now it seems to work but I get a 403 error. Any ideas? I have placed a filed named index.html into the physical directory c:\mywebsite\ that I created...no luck being able to see it though.

http://sientz.redirectme.net

or

http://sientz.redirectme.net/index.html

Update #2: Figured it out! Stupid and simple, I had Windows 7 set up to hide known file extensions in the Folder Options so even though I named it index.html it was really index.html.txt =P My Bad!

Thanks for the tutorial!

I've just had a look and it seems they have removed php from the installer, you can however go to the following page and click the install php 5.3. link at the top of the page and it will do the install the the webplatform.

Also you may want to check out the gallery for lots of stuff that can be installed via the WPI - http://www.microsoft.com/web/gallery/categories.aspx

I typed PHP in the small search bar on the upper right hand side of the Web Installer and it gave me a list of things to install. I selected PHP and then 'Add' and Install. I have no idea if it worked. I was looking at running a PHP Nuke Site but it says on their site you need Apache web server so I am guessing it is not going to work with IIS? Might have to look for an alternative...
