Configuring IIS for the installation of Kentico

For the Kentico Installer to work correctly with your IIS, check that the following features are enabled in your system.

If these features are not enabled, the Kentico Installer might not detect that IIS is installed on your computer, and could additionally install IIS Express.

  1. Open the Windows Control Panel.

  2. In the Control Panel, click Programs and Features and then click Turn Windows features on or off.

  3. In the Windows Features dialog, expand the Internet Information Services -> World Wide Web Services category.

  4. In the Application Development Features category, enable ASP.NET (Windows 7) or ASP.NET 4.5 (Windows 8).

    • This should automatically enable the .NET Extensibility (.NET Extensibility 4.5), ISAPI Extensions and ISAPI Filters features.
  5. In the Common HTTP Features category, enable the Static Content feature.
  6. Click OK.
