What is IIS ?

Hi! I am relatively very new to the DBA field. I just finished my training on SQL server 2000 administration & programming. I want to know as to what is the exact purpose of the IIS and how is it integrated with SQL. Thanks & Regards

It’s a web server. Superficially, it’s the thing that gives you back the page when you visit a web site. It is not really "integrated" with SQL Server, but the two are used together often to work with or just deliver data from a database using a web page. You can do that using a variety of techniques; the common Microsoft pattern now is to create the web pages using .NET ASP, which can be made to connect to the database and fetch things or make changes. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/iis/evaluation/default.mspx ————————–

IIS (Microsoft Internet Information Services or Server) is a set of Internet based services for Windows machines. Originally supplied as part of the Option Pack for Windows NT, they were subsequently integrated with Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003. The current (Windows 2003) version is IIS 6.0 and includes servers for FTP, SMTP, NNTP and HTTP/HTTPS. Earlier versions also included a Gopher server. —————————————-
