Windows NT/2000/2003 and IIS 4, 5, 6 or newer and PWS 4 on NT Workstation or
W2K non server editions
To install WhizBase on an NT/2000/2003 Server running IIS 4, 5, 6
follow these instructions. Start the Microsoft Management Console (may appear as
'Internet Services Manager', either in your Windows NT 4.0 Option
Pack branch or the Control Panel=>Administrative Tools under Windows 2000). Then
right click on your Web server node (this will most probably appear as 'Default
Web Server'), and select 'Properties'.
Next, do the following:
- Under 'Home
'Virtual Directory', or 'Directory', click on the 'Configuration'
button, and then enter the App
- Click Add, and in the Executable box , type:
c:\wbsp\wbsp.exe (assuming that you have installed WBSP
- In the Extension box , type the file name extension you want
associated with WBSP scripts.
Leave 'Method exclusions' blank, and check the Script engine checkbox. You
do not need to check the 'check that file exists' box - because of a
performance effects, WBSP itself will check that the script file exists and
sort out authentication before processing the request.
means that you will get sensible 404 style error messages anyway but checking
the 'check that file exists' box will slow the server a bit.
- You must repeat from 'Click Add...' for each
extension you want associated with WBSP scripts. (.wbsp,.sr,.aut,.ic and
.inc are recommended.)
- For Windows 2003 Server and IIS 6 only: Set web
extension status to "Allowed" by opening "Web Service Extensions" and
selecting "Add a new Web service
extension...". Name the service (e.g. "WBSP Extension"), add
full path to wbsp.exe to the "Required files" list, and check the "Set extension status to Allowed
" checkbox. This step has to be done on W2003/IIS
6 even if you want to use WBSP as a CGI.
