IIS 2.0 can be found on the Windows NT 4.0 Server installation CD-ROM. This version of IIS was pretty basic, and changing advanced settings usually involved messing around with the Windows registry. Version 3.0 was little different from 2.0, but it did see the introduction of server-side scripting through the use of the innovative Active Server Pages <a href="#1">[1]</a>. By contrast, version 4.0 of IIS saw a radical change to the application. IIS 4.0 sported a completely new user interface, a host of new features, and improved reliability.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue21/nt-explorer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue21 tooled up brett burridge jisc microsoft oracle ukoln university of bath university of essex access control apache browser cache cataloguing cd-rom copyright data data management database e-business ftp html internet explorer intranet java operating system passwords perl personalisation scripting language search technology software sql sql server standards url web app web browser web services windows xml Wed, 22 Sep 1999 23:00:00 +0000 editor 642 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Web Focus: Report on "Institutional Web Management Next Steps" Workshop http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue21/web-focus <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue21/web-focus#author1">Brian Kelly</a> reports on the latest "Institutional Web Management Workshop," this year called: "The Next Steps."</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The "<em>Institutional Web Management: The Next Steps</em>" workshop took place at Goldsmiths College, London on 7-9 September 1999.
