Here's the WSS V3 setup info:



Deploy Windows SharePoint Services version 3 (Beta 2) on a single server

Note This content is preliminary content for a preliminary software release. It might be incomplete and is subject to change.

You can publish a working SharePoint site in just minutes by deploying Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (version 3) on a single server computer. A single-server configuration is useful if you want to evaluate Windows SharePoint Services version 3 features and capabilities, such as collaboration, document management, and search, but you do not want to spend a lot of time installing components and configuring settings. A single-server configuration is also useful if you are deploying a small number of Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead. When you deploy Windows SharePoint Services version 3 on a single server using the default settings, the Setup program automatically installs and configures Microsoft® Windows® Internal Database, and uses it to create the configuration database and content database for your SharePoint site. In addition, the Setup program installs SharePoint Central Administration and creates your first SharePoint site.

Hardware and software requirements

Before you install and configure Windows SharePoint Services version 3, make sure your server computer has the recommended hardware and software. For a single-server deployment, your server computer must meet the following hardware and software requirements.

Hardware requirements

A dual-processor computer with processor clock speeds of 2.5 gigahertz (GHz) or higher. A minimum of 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM; however, 2 GB of RAM is recommended for improved performance.

Software requirements

A computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, or Web Edition) with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (Build 3807.7), and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. Instructions for installing the Windows Workflow Foundation Beta 2.2 and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 are provided later in this section. For more information about Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, see the Microsoft .NET Framework Developer Center. For more information about the Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2, see the Windows Workflow Foundation Web site.

The computer must be configured as a Web server running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode. Instructions for installing and configuring IIS are provided later in this section. For more information about IIS , see the Windows Server 2003 documentation.

The computer must be using the NTFS file system. Windows Server 2003 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS without losing data.

In addition to these requirements, you must install Windows SharePoint Services version 3 on a clean installation of Windows Server 2003. If you uninstall a previous version of Windows SharePoint Services version 3, and then install Windows SharePoint Services version 3 (Beta 2), Setup might fail to create the configuration database and the installation process will fail.



Security account requirements

To install Windows SharePoint Services version 3 on a stand-alone server, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the computer, or you must be a member of a group that is a member of the Administrators group on the computer, such as the Domain Admins group.

Configure the server as a Web server

Before you install and configure Windows SharePoint Services version 3, you must install and configure the required software on each of your front-end servers. This includes installing and configuring IIS so your front-end servers act as Web servers, installing Windows .NET Framework 2.0, enabling ASP.NET 2.0, and installing Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (build 3807.7).

Install and configure IIS

IIS is not installed or enabled by default in Windows Server 2003. To make your server a Web server, you must install and enable IIS, and you must make sure that IIS is running in IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode.

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Configure Your Server Wizard.

2. On the Welcome to the Configure Your Server Wizard page, click Next.

3. On the Preliminary Steps page, click Next.

4. On the Server Role page, click Application server (IIS, ASP.NET), and then click Next.

5. On the Application Server Options page, click Next.

6. On the Summary of Selections page, click Next.

7. Click Finish.

8. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

9. In the IIS Manager tree, click the plus sign (+) next to the server name, and then right-click the Web Sites folder and select Properties.

10. In the Web Sites Properties dialog box, click the Service tab.

11. In the Isolation mode section, clear the Run WWW service in IIS 5.0 isolation mode check box, and then click OK.

Note The Run WWW in IIS 5.0 isolation mode check box is only selected if you have upgraded to IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003 from IIS 5.0 on Microsoft Windows 2000. New installations of IIS 6.0 use IIS 6.0 worker process isolation mode by default.

Install Windows .NET Framework 2.0

1. Do one of the following:

· If you are running an x86-based computer, go to the Microsoft Download Center Web site, and on the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86) page, click Download.

· If you are running an x64-based computer, go to the Microsoft Download Center Web site, and on the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x64) page, click Download.

2. In the File Download-Security Warning dialog box, click Run.

3. In the Internet Explorer-Security Warning dialog box, click Run and follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

Enable ASP.NET 2.0

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

2. In the IIS Manager tree, click the plus sign (+) next to the server name, and then click the Web Service Extensions folder.

3. In the details pane, click ASP.NET v2.0.50727, and then click Allow.

Install Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2

Go to the Microsoft Download Center Web site, and on the Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 and Visual Studio® 2005 Extensions for Windows Workflow Foundation Beta 2.2 page, follow the instructions for downloading and installing Windows Workflow Foundation Runtime Components Beta 2.2 (build 3807.7). There are separate downloads for x86-based computers and x64-based computers: be sure to download and install the appropriate version for your computer.

Install and configure Windows SharePoint Services with Windows Internal Database

Because you are installing to a single server, you can run the Setup program using the Basic option. This option uses the Setup program's default parameters to install Windows SharePoint Services version 3 and Windows Internal Database.

Run Windows SharePoint Services Setup

1. From the product disc, run Setup.exe, or from the product download, run Sharepoint.exe.

2. On the Read the Microsoft Software License Terms page, review the terms, select the I accept the terms of this agreement check box, and then click Continue.

3. On the Choose the installation you want page, click Basic.

4. When Setup finishes, a dialog appears telling you that you must complete the configuration of your server. Make sure that the Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard now check box is selected.

5. Click Close to start the configuration wizard.

Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard

1. On the Welcome to SharePoint Products and Technologies page, click Next.

2. In the warning dialog box notifying you that some services might need to be restarted or reset during configuration, click Yes.

3. On the Configuration Successful page, click Finish, and your new SharePoint site should open.

Notes

If you are prompted for your user name and password, you might need to add the site to the list of trusted sites and configure user authentication settings in Internet Explorer. Instructions for configuring these settings are provided in the next set of steps.

If you see a proxy server error message, you might need to configure your proxy server settings so that local addresses bypass the proxy server. Instructions for configuring this setting are provided later in this section.

Add the SharePoint site to the list of trusted sites

1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2. On the Security tab, in the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, click Trusted Sites, and then click Sites.

3. Clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box.

4. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL to your site, and then click Add.

5. Select the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box.

6. Click Close to close the Trusted Sites dialog box.

7. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.

Configure user authentication settings for trusted sites

1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2. On the Security tab, in the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, click Trusted sites, and then click Custom Level.

3. In the Settings list box, under User Authentication, click Automatic logon with current username and password.

4. Click OK twice.

Note If you do not want to add your SharePoint site to the list of trusted sites, but you do not want to be prompted for your user name and password every time you access your SharePoint site, you can instead add your SharePoint site to the Local intranet zone. If you do this, you must enable the Automatic logon only in Intranet zone user authentication setting instead of the Automatic logon with current username and password user authentication setting.

Configure proxy server settings to bypass the proxy server for local addresses

1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2. On the Connections tab, in the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings area, click LAN Settings.

3. In the Proxy Server area, select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box.

4. Click OK to close the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box.

5. Click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.
