Microsoft® Personal Web Server 4.0
If you're setting
up a Web site for your corporate workgroup or staging your personal
Web site to be later hosted by your Internet Service Provider,
Microsoft Personal Web Server provides everything you need to get up
and running quickly!
The Windows® 98 CD includes Personal Web Server (PWS); however,
PWS requires a separate setup step to be fully installed and
configured. To install PWS, you will need the Windows 98 CD, and
you will need to follow these steps:
- Insert your Windows 98 CD in its drive.
- Click Start and then click Run.
- In the Run dialog box, type x:\add-ons\pws\setup.exe
- Substitute the letter of your CD drive for x, and
- Follow the directions in Personal Web Server setup.
The Personal Web Server package makes it easy to install any of
the following new features:
Microsoft Personal Web Server 4.0, a desktop Web server
that can be used to host a Web site on your personal computer at
home or as part of an intranet at work, or to develop and test a Web
site before hosting the site with an Internet Service Provider
Microsoft Transaction Server 2.0 supports creation of
Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) applications. A transaction is a
server operation that succeeds or fails as a whole, even if the
operation involves many steps.
Data Access Components 1.5 consists of ActiveX Data
Objects (ADO) and Remote Data Service (RDS), the Microsoft OLE DB
Provider for ODBC, and Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). These
components provide client/server applications – deployed over the
Web or a LAN – with easy-to-use, programmatic access to all types of
data throughout the enterprise.
Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) Server 1.0 makes it easy
for application programs to communicate with other application
programs quickly, reliably, and asynchronously by sending and
receiving messages. The key features of MSMQ, such as ActiveX
support, comprehensive security controls, powerful administration
tools, extensive feature set, and integration with strategic
Microsoft products such as Internet Information Server and
Transaction Server, make MSMQ the message queuing product of choice
for applications running on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT.
The Personal Web Server package includes the MSMQ Dependent and
Independent Clients as part of the custom installation.
Easy administration features the Personal Web Manager to
help you administer your Web server.
