One of the strengths of IIS 7.0 is the module architecture. Along with this feature, provides the MS team the ability to release additional components “out of band” that aren’t necessarily part of the core install. This blog post is dedicated to some additional things I do when loading an IIS 7.0 server. As time goes on, this list probably will grow. If you have something special you do, please pass it along.
Here are a few things to do after you install IIS 7.0
Append ;%SystemRoot%system32inetsrv to the PATH environment variable. Note the semi-colon has to be there as a separator
Run appcmd add backup OriginalConfigurationBackup
Download / install IIS FTP 7.0 publishing service (www.iis.net/downloads) *Make sure the built-in FTP service is not installed*
Download / install WebDAV module from (www.iis.net/downloads)
