How to upload a website to FileMaker Server Websever on Windows

Hi all

 

Though I know how to do this on a mac server, it seems not to work the same way on Windows.

 

I'm trying to upload a simple website to the HTTPServer root on FileMaker Server folder, which is running on Windows Server.

 

If I open the URL http://www.mywebsite.com, where mywebsite.com points to my FileMaker Server, it should open a page with this image:

However if I do that against a Windows Server machine all I get is a blank page.

 

This machine has a standard FileMaker Server 14 installation. I didn't install IIS when I installed FileMaker Server 14 but it seems to be there. My OS is Windows Server 2012 R2.

 

Should I add the IIS role?, how can I set it up to point to FileMaker Server instead of the IIS default folder?.

 

Thanks in advance.
