Just to clarify:
1/ I have volunteered many hours trying to install QGIS Server but failed.
I wanted to document the process and offer that to the community.
I tried to piece together and use the fragments of information that can be
found on the subject, but it became too much trial and error and pure
guesswork. At one point, I had it running, but with the mentioned
guesswork, I could not stand for the validity of that installation process.
I concluded that I am missing information which probably is exclusive to
the author of the software.
2/ I am not asking for help for my personal needs. I offered a platform for
someone more clever than me to be able to provide documentation to  qgis.org
3/ IIS is not required. Feel free to choose any web server, but the
installation manual must cover the installation and configurationof the web
server as well.

Regards, Mats.E
