Installing Windows SharePoint Service 3.0 on Windows Server 2008 x64. WSS 3.0 on WS 2008 x64.
To install the server, we need to set it on a Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008, it does not matter what OS version you select (32 bits or 64 bits), will depend on it just kind of distribution you downloaded from the official site of Microsoft. I look at my example, the installation of Windows Server 2008 x64.
• Establish roles on a server running Windows Server 2008 Web Server (IIS) and application server.
• Download and install Microsoft. NET Framework 3.0 version must match your operating system, ie if the OS is x64 and the Microsoft. Net Framework is also x64.
• Download Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 are from the same site of Microsoft. The rules are the same as in the preceding paragraph, download according to the capacity of your OS. It is worth noting that for WS 2008 x64 necessarily need WSS 3.0 sp1 and above, according to my reference is lined version x64 SP2.
• Run the downloaded file SharePoint.exe.
• When prompted, select your base configuration. In principle, it established the optimum parameters, we can do something better, but once you read this book and not do with my eyes closed all by yourself, then everything is still choose the Base.
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is installed in the base configuration. After that, run the application configuration Windows SharePoint Services. At this stage, apart from the rest, creating the configuration database for SharePoint, installed utilities, and creates a database of samples. Up to this point, you all should go “smoothly”, when suddenly you encounter any problems, then you’ve missed some point this manual or downloaded the corresponding not to the bit with your OS.
Now you can open a browser and enter the address where your site. By default, the address looks like this: http://servername/default.aspx , where servername is the name of your server (everyone has!). In Windows Server 2008 for normal portal, you need to add a portal to the “Trusted Sites” in the Properties of Internet Explorer.
