Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) is a server developed by Microsoft for Windows. Questions about IIS should be limited to its setup and configuration for a local development environment.

IIS (Internet Information Services - formerly called Internet Information Server) is a web server created by Microsoft for their operating systems for servers. Its first version was introduced with Windows NT Server version 3.51, and went through several updates. Currently, the most current version is IIS 8.5 (only available in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1)
