Chapter 6. Setting Up Windows SharePoint Services

Whether you are a user or an administrator, you should understand how Windows SharePoint Services is installed and configured. Microsoft has simplified the installation process, allowing you to choose your installation mode and walk away from the server while the installation progresses. Once SharePoint is installed, you can access many configuration options to fine-tune your installation.

In this chapter, you will learn about the options for installing and configuring Windows SharePoint Services. However, detailed installation instructions are beyond the scope of this book. This chapter does provide a high-level overview of the important aspects of the installation process, including:
