Implementation Notes The project has been successfully implemented. IIS web server on Windows Operating system is installed and configured to run company’s website.  This section provides a high level overview of the implementation steps.  Installed IIS (Internet Information Services) Web Server.  Installed PHP and MySQL Database.  Downloaded WordPress (Content Management System) to create website.  Added the website in IIS Web Server and bound it to HTTP port 80.  Installed WordPress and added content to website using WordPress admin panel.  Configured firewall to secure the website from malicious attacks.  Installed SSL certificate (issued to abccompany.com) to secure the WordPress admin and login pages, and bound it to HTTPS on port 443. Now, user can access the website on http://abccompany.com If user accesses the admin panel on http://abccompany.com/wp-admin this request would be redirected to https protocol as https://abccompany.com/wp-admin and will ensure the secure connection.  Concerns: This section provides a high level overview of the features other than design document.  IIS server and Windows are used instead of Apache and Linux because of resource constraint.  Operating System: Windows is used instead of Linux as, company doesn’t want to purchase a new machine to setup a web server, instead wants to use existing system with windows 7 already installed.  Web Server: IIS (Internet Information Services) Web server is used instead of Apache web server.
