Chapter 16: Deploying Your Application > Setting Up Your Web Server

Setting Up Your Web Server

In this section, we'll show you how to set up IIS and how to configure your web server. If you want to deploy a three-tier application and not use Windows Azure, this is a necessary requirement. If you're setting up a two-tier desktop application, you can skip this section and move straight to the “Deployment Wizard” section.

The version of IIS that you'll set up will depend on the server operating system you've installed. When you set up a web server, we recommend carrying out the following tasks in the sequence shown:

  1. Install IIS
  2. Install ASP.NET 4
  3. Install LightSwitch prerequisites and the Web Deploy Tool
  4. Configure Application Pools
  5. Optionally set up SSL

We'll now describe each of these steps in more detail.
