I have tried to install IIS in My local machine in windows 7. My purpose is to install the IIS & change its Seesion timeout property because I want to increase the Session time out Period. So I went to Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Programs and Features then clicked Windows features on & off.

After that clicked on Internet Information Service then Web Management Tool then IIS Management Console then pressed ok.

It installed but when I went to see in Inetpub\wwwroot I got nothing. When I went to see http://localhost result shows blank page.

I tried to search in Google but still I didn't get the answer. So please help me sort out this problem.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Make sure you actually install IIS itself instead of just the management console. Windows Features -> IIS -> World Wide Web-services

Or use the Web Platform installer like Snake said.

Try the Web Platform installer, this will do most of the stuff for you. You might have forgotten something.
