I have built a new server with a clean install of Windows Server 2016 and noticed a few strange things about IIS.
IIS 10.0 is located inside the
- Does this mean it is a 32bit exe, and therefore incapable of running 64bit web code?
- Is there both a 32bit and 64bit version of IIS?
- If so, how can I tell which I have?
- If not then why are there two versions of some extensions? eg https://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite#additionalDownloads
IIS 6 is also located in the same folder (InetMgr6.exe). In gods name, why !!?
If I run IIS 6 it tells me that I have IIS 7.5 running on this server!
If I dig deeper, IIS 6 says it is running an SMTP Server.
What's thats all about?
Help me make sense of all this !
