hello all new to IIS, I am doing an exercise to get familiar with IIS. I would like to create a test website something not expensive then install IIS on my vm machine running win svr 08 r2. I would like to setup IIS on it. I am not clear on what to do first? I know there is a certification process involved, please explain the basic steps example
get a website, install IIS latest version, when do I register the cert? I am guessing the website comes with a cert?
meaning I would like to the ssl process of new ssl and renewing the ssl.
I'm in learning mode. Thank you for all your help.
ok all update. I think I understand correct me if Im missing something.
I would like to tie everything into my fqdn for my domain on my server. for example
I am thinking I need to create a .com name like example blocked u know what I mean :-) from a site like godaddy or something. then also register it.
the reason for registering it, is that the registration co. will put it on there dns servers and when folks do a search it will pop up correct?
ok to do the ssl cert exercise I would have to get an ssl cert which godaddy does as well.
ok I am guessing in IIS I point to my website and my ssl cert?
did I miss anything?
