Creating multiple websites on IIS 5.0 + Win XP

leave a comment »


Some time back I was using windows XP Pro for development at work. One thing that I was unable to figure out was to create one website per project with in IIS. The answer to this is that there isn’t a way to accomplish this using the IIS Management Console. I did some searching on the web and found a couple of awesome free tools that serves the purpose.

XP PRO IIS Admin [1] and IISAdmin.Net [2] are of tremendous help with setting up and allowing you to easily add new websites, and switch between them. One thing to keep in mind is that we can only have one active website at a time. I wonder why microsoft left out on this feature from the IIS mmc.
