    Cpanel equivalent for IIS?

    I was wondering what the Cpanel or Plesk equivalent was for accessing a IIS server.

    Do you mean the linux equivalent?

    Most likely Apache.

    What I mean is the tool one would generally use to login and create a database on a IIS server.

    For Linux servers running Apache you generally use Cpanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin or another equivalent.

    cPanel are currently developing a version for windows.
    Plesk is available for windows, and at this stage would be my recommendation.

    Haven't they been developing that for a number of years? Last I heard was it was being put back, again.

    Note, cPanel/WHM typically uses MySQL(R) (though PostgreSQL is supported as well) to create the databases. cPanel/WHM is merely an interface to functionality such as database creation, and does not handle such functionality internally.

    Similarly, cPanel Server Suite (currently in private beta) doesn't use IIS 7 itself to create databases. Instead, it uses database software such as Microsoft(R) SQL Server(TM) or MySQL (whichever you choose) to create the databases. Though, websites designed with Microsoft technologies such as ASP.NET would most likely use Microsoft SQL Server. This will be discussed in more depth at the cPanel Server Suite sessions at this year's cPanel Conference.

    For better understanding. IIS is the webserver engine , while database engines run as separate instances in windows server system. They are separately managed using applications for each,

    It's hard to tell, but I'm assuming he means a control panel that supports IIS, e.i., Helm.
