How to install IIS 8.5 Server 2012 R2

Install IIS 8.5 in the Server 2012 R2 
When the Web Server (UI) role is chosen for the first time in the Add Roles and Features Wizard in Server Manager, the basic components and services needed for IIS are automatically selected. The following procedure will install Internet Information Services on a running physical server when IIS has not already been installed. Open Server Manager by clicking the Server Manager icon on the desktop.
  1. In the Server Manager window, with the Dashboard and Quick Start selected, click Add roles and features, or click the Manage menu, and then click Add Roles and Features. The Add Roles and Features Wizard will start with a Before You Begin page.
  2. On the Before You Begin page, click Next.
  3. On the Installation Type page, select Role-based or feature-based installation to configure a single server. Click Next.

  1. On the Server Selection page, select Select a server from the server pool, and then select a server; or select Select a virtual hard disk server, select a server to mount the VHD on, and then select a VHD file. Click Next.

  1. On the Server Roles page, select Web Server (IIS).

  1. In the Add Roles and Features wizard, click Add Features if you want to install the IIS Management Console.

  1. On the Server Roles page, click Next.
  2. On the Features page, select any features that you would like to install, and then click Next. Note that you do not need to select any features on this page to install IIS. IIS setup will select the features that are required.

Leave Include management tools (if applicable) selected to select the install management tools associated with the server role.

  2. After you have added the role services that you need on the Role Services page, click Next.
  3. On the Confirmation page, verify the role services and features that are selected.

When you are ready to start the installation process on the Confirmation page, click Install.
