FTP released for Windows Server 2008 RC0

Microsoft released an updated version of FTP server that will work with Windows Server 2008 latest release RC0. This might not be a big deal to most but one of the features that I found interesting was the Shared Hosting environments. This means that once you have created a specific site you can have a FTP services directly connected to the site. This is huge from many angles one being the Front Page Service extensions. Anyone in the hosting business knows that this was a problem from the get go and it only took them 3 Server Operating systems later to fix it. You can secure FTP now and allow better functionality now. Not that Share Hosting is a booming business now. Most hosters have actually tried to get away from Shared Hostings but as things are moving forward the large Telco’s of the world that are already offering free web pages will be able to do this with ease.

Required settings and software.

  1. RC0 is the only version that FTP 7 will work on. Should work on any releases after as well.
  2. IIS 7.0 has to be installed
  3. Shared configuration environment has to be disabled prior to FTP installation
  4. FTP has to be installed running as Administrator so remember RUNAS
  5. Previous versions of FTP have to be uninstalled prior to FTP7 installation.

Interesting site that will provide assistance.
