How to Install FTP Server on Windows Server 2012


In today's article you will learn how to install FTP Server on Windows Server 2012.

Step 1

First of all open your Server Manager. In the Server Manager you will find the option "Add Roles and Features" on the front page. Click on it or you can go to the Manage option and then click "Add Roles and Features", either way will open the same window.


Now a new window will be opened named "Add Roles and Features". First, some information about this window will be given, then you can click on the "Next" button to start the process of adding a FTP Server.


Step 2

The next page is for selecting the "Installation type". Select the first option and then click on "Next".


On clicking, next the "Destination Server" page will be opened where you must select the server from the Server Pool. Here I have only one server in the Server Pool so my server is automatically selected.


Step 3

On the Next Page you had to select the Rolls that you want to install. Scroll down to "Web Server IIS" and click on it.


As you click on the Web Server IIS, a new window will be opened where you must select the "Add Features" option.


Step 4

The next page is for the features, you can select any feature you want to install or otherwise simply click on the "Next" button without selecting anything like I do.


The next page will provide you information about the Web Server IIS and will tell you what work can be done by it.


Step 5

Now for the main part where you must select the "Roll Services under Web Server IIS". Scroll down to the "FTP Server" and select it's "Services and Extensibility".


The next page is the "Confirmation page" that will show you your selections, you can check them and then click on Install to start the Installation process.


Now your Installation will begin that will requrie a few minutes depending on the processing power of your server.
