Installing MVC 2 on IIS 6

Published on October 9, 2010 | Filed Under MVC

There are tons of articles out there about how to get MVC working on IIS 6, but none of them seem to be a quick fix.

But these all appear to be a bit outdated from what I’ve recently discovered.

The simplest way to get MVC working on IIS 6 is by installing ASP.NET 4.0 on your server and running the web application under it. ASP.NET 4.0 seems to manage everything just fine, once installed.

Just as a side note, I successfully got this to work on two different servers. If it was a fluke, it was a nice fluke and definitely worked to my advantage!

I bet you were expecting some large write-up about it, right? ;)
