View Thread: How do you set up a public website on a Windows server?

    Today I start setting up a new web server for our small, non-profit.  Because none of us are sys admins, we're be doing basically what the previous person did, when he set it up on the old server years ago.  We have public facing website for our non-profit, what I like to call "brochureware".  It describes who we are, where we're located, etc.  The previous guy placed this all in wwwroot. Not a folder within wwwroot, just wwwroot.  I've always felt that was probably wrong, but I didn't know any better, and I certainly wasn't in charge of it back then.  Now that it falls on me, I don't know what I'm supposed to do, so I'd appreciate some help on this, please.

    We're working on a Windows Web Server 2008 R2.
