How to setup IIS in Windows 8 for jQuery Mobile development??

Hello, I'm watching the jQuery mobile app video and it requires a local server to actually view it and test it. Amit uses a Mac with Anvil in the video but recommends IIS for Windows. However he didn't give any information about how to set that up! Can someone please point me in the right direction here?

P.S. Once IIS is setup, can this also be used for local Wordpress development?

Hi Josh,

I've only quickly glanced at the project but it looks like it doesn't matter what local server you run?

You may need a windows cd to install IIS and it's not going to work out for wordpress development as far as I know. Wordpress is based on php and IIS is for running asp, asp.net.

You may want to look instead at Xampp

This should work out for both local wordpress development and this jQuery mobile workshop.
