If you are using JIRA as well as Confluence, please refer to this page in the JIRA documentation instead.
Step 1. Install IIS
If you are running Windows Server 2003, you will only be able to use IIS 5.1 or 6. If you are using Windows Server 2008, you might like to install IIS 7.

After installation is complete you should be able to go to http://localhost/iishelp/iis/misc/default.asp in your browser and see the IIS Getting Started page.

To check that IIS has been installed successfully, you can direct your browser to http://localhost/ and see the IIS 7 logo.

c:\ajp_iis (the name of the directory isn't important, but if you use a different one make sure to take account of this in the instructions which follow)
- Create a isapi_redirect.properties file in the same directory as you put the DLL. You can use this sample isapi_redirect.properties file if you have used
ajp_iisas the directory name.
- Note that this sample properties file assumes that the dll is named
isapi_redirect.dll. If you want to name your DLL something else, you must edit this file.
- Create workers.properties and uriworkermap.properties files. You can use the sample workers.properties file and the sample uriworkermap.properties file.
