Configuring a Web Server

Commerce Server 2002

In Commerce Server Manager, the Commerce Web server objects contain properties needed by the Data Warehouse in order to import log files. When you add a Web server to an application, these properties are automatically populated from Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 and stored in the Administration database.
