4 Setting up a MapServer WMS

The first version of this cookbook ran through how to set-up a simple implementation of the MapServer for Windows (MS4W) "all-in-one" package which utilises the Apache HTTP web server. This revised cookbook section updates that original guidance, including how to update your MapServer version, (you will need to do this to serve WMS 1.3.0), and also gives information on how to setup MapServer to run on Windows IIS and Linux Apache.

Comprehensive documentation for installing on other platforms and with other web servers is available on the MapServer website (

We also give some guidance in subsequent sections on how to set up your WMS services using the latest versions of ESRI software.
