View Full Version : Automating website and user creation (finally, this is NOT an awful problem)

OK, firstly let me confirm that this is not yet another problem with my Windows 2003 Server installation, but something I am interested in setting up.

Does anyone know of a guide somewhere (I can't find one) that will show me how to (via WSH or command line) create IIS websites while specifying advanced options (easy part), set permissions on folders, and create the appropriate user in Active Directory and set permissions correctly so they can access FTP but nothing else.

Currently I do all this manually, but want to find if I can automate it. Obviously I can, but need help.

There is no hurry for this, it is simply a matter of convenience. It will be necessary in a month or so though...

If I get the VBScript or command line tools to use, I can of course get the web interface side of things done fine on my own - that's ready now in fact.

Cheers George
