Introduction

Preface

 

The past five years has seen exponential growth in the use of technology.  The sound of a mobile phone ringing causes 9 out of 10 people to reach for a device on their person. The single home computer system is quickly changing to a home network.  Parting friends no longer say, “Call Me!” but rather “E-mail me!”

 

The growth of the Internet has been equally impressive. It is difficult these days to find a business without .com behind its name.  Universities have .edu and local school district proudly displays its state and country, mydistrict.k12.az.us.

 

School communication has also grown.  Parents, and the communities which schools serve, desire more and more information.  The Internet provides the medium to disseminate this information.  Microsoft provides the perfect tool for placing this information on the Internet in the form of Microsoft Windows 2000 Server combined with Internet Information Server 5.0. 

 

While schools and school districts continue to design or expand their computer networks, society continues to demand information. Unfortunately, many school districts use 100% of their resources to keep their networks functioning. Adding to these problems is the public sector’s demand for experienced network administrators and technicians.  It is difficult for school districts to compete with the salaries offered by corporate America.  

 

This document is designed for the staff member who is charged with the task of setting up and managing a Microsoft Internet Information Server and has not had the opportunity to become an expert in the intricacies of this powerful tool.

 

The World Wide Web and Your School District is a step-by-step guide to:

q       Installing Windows 2000 Server

q       Configuring Internet Information Server including SMTP

q       Configuring FrontPage Security

q       Setting up Web Folders

q       Configuring data access web pages using supplied html code and Access databases

 

Documentation will also include:

q       How to use this guide

q       Conventions used in this document

How to use this guide

 

 

The World Wide Web and Your School District is designed to be a two-phase tutorial and guide with the non-technical staff member in mind.  Each chapter is laid out with step-by-step procedures guiding you through the process of setting up a Windows 2000 web server for your school district.  Upon completion of this guide, you will have a functioning web server which host separate and secure web sites for each school in your district.  Additionally, your server will be able host a separate and secure web site for each teacher in your district.

 

Phase One

For the first time Web Server administrator, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) can be intimidating.  Therefore, I recommend you follow the procedures laid out in this book one time as a learning experience.  To help with troubleshooting, I also recommend using the same schools and user names used in this guide.  

 

Phase Two

After you have successfully completed your “practice build” of the web server, complete the process a second time using your district’s school names.  To aid you in the process of building your production web server, I have included a Web Server Procedure Checklist.  Please review this checklist and obtain the required information from your network administrator prior to building your web server.

 

Each chapter will contain an overview of the task you will be completing.  Please take the time to review this information prior to beginning the chapter.

 

And finally, I have included two sample databases along with the Active Server Page (ASP) scripts.  These are the same databases I developed and use at my school district. 

 

The World Wide Web and Your School District is not the definitive guide to IIS.  It will, however, get your web server up and running.  As time and resources allow, I highly recommend attending a Microsoft Certified Class on Internet Information Server. Training information may be found at the following URL: www.microsoft.com/windows2000/training

 

Take a deep breath… Now go to it!

RAID

Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disk

 

The specific needs of your school district will determine the type of server needed.  For example:  The number of virtual web sites, the number of daily hits to your web server, the number of concurrent hits to your web server.  Below you will see Microsoft’s minimum recommendations for server running Windows 2000. 

 

Windows 2000 Server

133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU.

 

256 megabytes (MB) of RAM recommended minimum [128 MB minimum supported; 4 gigabytes (GB) maximum].

 

2 GB hard disk with a minimum of 1.0 GB free space. (Additional free hard disk space is required if you are installing over a network.)

 

Windows 2000 Server supports up to four CPUs on one machine.

Windows 2000 Advanced Server

133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU. 256 MB of RAM recommended minimum (128 MB minimum supported; 8 GB maximum).

 

2 GB hard disk with a minimum of 1.0 GB free space. (Additional free hard disk space is required if you are installing over a network.)

 

Windows 2000 Advanced Server supports up to eight CPUs on one machine.

 

 

The above will work wonderfully for a test server.  However, on your production server I would recommend the following as a minimum standard.  Pentium II 500 with 256 megabytes of RAM and 12 gigabytes of hard drive space.   

 

If your budget allows for a faster machine, consider upgrading to dual processors and upgrade your RAM to 512 megabytes. Additionally, you will want to include a RAID hard drive Array of and redundant power supplies. 

 

Last but not least, install a backup tape drive.

 

I will not recommend a specific brand of server.  However, I will recommend purchasing from a major computer manufacturer. Your web server is not the place to save a few dollars.

 

 



Considerations, Information and Supplies

 

 

One of the most important features in IIS is the ability to host multiple web sites on one machine.  Prior to IIS 4.0, each web site required a separate web server.  Using IIS, one web server is capable of hosting multiple web sites. 

 

Imagine the expense your school district would incure trying to give each school a separate web site before IIS.  See the images below.

 

www.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

staff_web.learniis.edu

192.168.0.73

adams_high_school.learniis.edu

192.168.0.74

ftp.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

 

Using IIS, multiple web sites may be placed on one server using multiple IP addresses.  These IP addresses are assigned to the servers Network Interface Card (NIC) through a process called Binding. Using the same scenario as above, three machines have been eliminated.

www.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

staff_web.learniis.edu

192.168.0.73

adams_high_school.learniis.edu

192.168.0.74

ftp.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

 

In some scenarios, multiple IP addresses are not available.  In this case, IIS can host multiple web sites by using a single IP addresses while taking advantage of Host Headers. Again, three servers have been eliminated.

adams_high_school.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

ftp.learniis.edu

192.168.0.72

 

Using Host Headers will require your webmasters use a Microsoft Web-Publishing product to create and maintain their web sites.  Personally, I prefer separate IP address for each web site on the web server.  Doing this also allows each site you have it’s own FTP site or FTP access for updating the web content.

 

Microsoft recommends not having more than five IP address bound to any NIC and corresponding web site.  I believe this recommendation was designed with web sites that take over 100,000 hits per day in mind.  It is not likely a school district site will take 100,000 hits per day.  At my school district, we have been successfully running 42 web sites with corresponding IP addresses assigned to one NIC for over three years.

Chapter 1 Overview

 

In this chapter you will complete the process of installing Windows 2000 Server software on your server.  This chapter assumes your server does not contain an operating system or you wish to remove the current operating system.  Any data on the hard drive(s) will be removed during this installation.

 

This chapter will not address any server specific information.  Please consult the technical data included with your server.

 

Materials needed in this chapter

q       Drivers and utilities specific to your server (Drivers should come with machine or contact the manufacturer.)

q       Windows 2000 Server CD

 

Installing Windows 2000 Server

 

 

 

Follow the instructions below if the intended web server is not pre-configured with Windows 2000 Server.

 

 

 

  1. Place Windows 2000 Server CD in the CD ROM drive and power up the server.
    1. The installer will generate a series of Blue Windows 2000 Installation screens while the Windows Operating System begins to install itself on the server.
  2. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Welcome screen: The software installer will ask if you want to setup Windows 2000 now.  Press the Enter Key.

 

 

 


 

 

  1. At the next screen, please read the Windows License Agreement.  Press F8 when finished.

 

 

 


 

 

  1. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Partition Screen:

With this step, it is possible to re-configure hard drive partitions.  This server will be configured as a web server only.  Therefore, it is not necessary to create an Operating System (OS) partition larger than 4 gigabytes.  (It is also not recommended to create the OS partition smaller than 2.5 gigabytes.)

Press the D key to delete any existing partitions. 

 

Deleting hard disk partitions.

 

 

  1. Windows setup will confirm you wish to delete the partitions.  Press the Enter key to confirm and continue.

 

 

 

 

 

  1. In the next screen, Windows setup will ask you to press the L key to delete the partitions. Press the L key at this time.

 

 

 

 

7.      If the server contains more than one partition, the screen reappears, press the down arrow to select the other partition.  Repeat steps four and five.  When all partitions have been deleted proceed to steps four through 6.

 

 

 

Creating Hard Disk Partitions

  1. Create a partition. Press the C key.

 

The windows installer will display the total size of the partition.

 

 

 

 

  1. In this screen, type the size of the partition you want the Windows installer to create. (4 gigabytes (4000MB) is recommended)  Press the Enter key.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. This screen displays the new partition size.

Press the Enter key to install Windows.

 

 

 


 

 

Note: it is possible to use the FAT files system when setting up the server.  However, you must convert the partition to NTFS to fully utilize Windows security.

  1. This screen will ask you to choose which file format to use when formatting the hard drive.  NTFS is the default choice for Windows 2000. Press the Enter key to continue.

 

Once the Windows Installer formats the hard drive, the installation of the operating system will begin. After the operating system is copied to the server, the machine will reboot.  Windows will continue the installation process. This process may take up to thirty minutes.

 

 


 

 

  1. This screen displays the format settings for the hard drive along with the status of the formatting operation.

 

 

 

 

  1. This screen will show process of files being copied to the hard drive.

 

 

 


 

 

  1. Once Windows has copied the files to the hard drive, the server will again reboot.  The server will display several screens during the reboot.

 

 

 

Choosing Windows Components

  1. Several screens will appear on the monitor as Windows 2000 boots for the Components process.

  2. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Welcome to the Windows 2000 Setup Wizard window:

 

 

 


 

 

  1. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Regional Settings window: choose the appropriate region for your Geographical Location.  Click the Next button.

 

 

 

 

  1. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Personalize Your Software window: In the Name field, type Your Name. In the Operation field, type My Organization. Click Next.

 

 

 


 

 

When building your production server, choose the license purchased for your server.

 

 

19.      Windows 2000 Server Setup / Licensing Modes window:

Per Server Concurrent Settings

Per Seat

This will depend on your licensing agreement.  For this tutorial, choose Per seat.  Click Next.

 

 


 

 

On your production server, it is necessary to keep this password very secure.  However, it is equally important that another trusted person knows the password or where to find the password in the event you are not available.  Additionally, it is important to routinely change the administrator password.

 

 

  1. Windows 2000 Server Setup / Computer Name & Administrator Password window: Type WEBSERVER in the Computer Name field.  Type the administrator password in the Type an administrator password field. Click Next.

 

 

 


 

 

21.      Windows 2000 Server Setup / Windows 2000 Components window: Windows 2000 server is extremely robust server software.  The objective of this server, however, will be to serve web pages. Scroll the component Box, locate Internet Information Service (IIS) and Double click.  Choose File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server

Changing Permissions to the Staff_Web Folder 72

 

 

 

Chapter 5 Overview

 

In Chapter 5 you will create a set of folders that will hold web data.  After these folders are created, you will set the permissions for these folders.  Setting permissions allow you to control who can and can not access folders.

 

Materials needed in this chapter

q       List of school sites in your district. (Production build only)

q       Sample default page (Included on the CD)


 

 

Creating Data Folders and Setting NTFS Security

 

 

 

  1. Open the E drive that has been labeled Web_Data.  Create a new folder and name this folder Web_Sites.

 

The Web_Data drive may be labeled differently on your  web server.

 

 

  1. Place the pointer over the Web_Sites folder.  Right mouse button click: choose Properties.

 

 


 

 

  1. Web_Sites Properties / General tab:  Click the Security tab.

 

 


 

 

  1. Web_Sites Properties / Security tab:  Remove the check mark from the check box in front of Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object.  This check box is located in the lower left corner of this window.


By default, Windows 2000 gives the Everyone group (any user who logs into the machine) a security setting of full control over the data in a folder.  Any sub folder will inherit the same security setting at the parent folder. Example: UserData/Teacher.  The folder UserData is the parent folder.  Teacher is the sub folder.  Full control allows the user to read data, change data and delete data.  This can be problematic on a web server.  Clearing the check box for Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object allows sub folders to have a different set of security permission than the parent folder.

  1. Open the Web_Sites folder.  Create the following folders:

q       District_Main_Web

q       Staff_Web

q       Adams_High_School

q       Jefferson_Middle_School

q       Washington_Elementary

  1. Place a sample page in each folder.  (You may create your own pages or copy the samples provided in the Sample Web Page folder on the CD.)  This sample file must be named default.htm.
    Leave this window open.

 

 


 

Changing Permissions to the Staff_Web Folder

The Staff Web site will contain web sites created with Microsoft products and non-Microsoft products.  Consequently, FTP access must be made available to this folder.  This forces a slight change to the security of this folder.

 

14.  Place the pointer over the Staff_Web folder.  Click the right mouse button choose Properties and click.
