SharePoint 2013 Server - Installed Components

You must be interested to know whether what all changes were made to your machine after installing SharePoint 2013 Server. Well, below mentioned are some of the basic changes that occur while installing SharePoint 2013 Server.

1) Global Assembly Cache (GAC) Updated: All the SharePoint DLL will be deployed to GAC which makes the SharePoint framework available to the applications on OS.
(GAC Location : C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL)

2) SharePoint Root (15 Hive) Created: The 15 Hive is a special folder which is located at c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\15. It consists of a folder structure that holds all the important DLLs, images, config files, templates, etc for developing rich SharePoint applications.

3) Internet Infromation Services (IIS) Updated: Virtual directories and Application pools are created in IIS that hold numerous ASP.NET 2.0 web sites, with configuration files that turn them into SharePoint 2013 sites that use .NET 4.0.

4) Central Administration Site Created: This is the default website for SharePoint 2013 Administration which is created in IIS. This site provides a rich interface for managing and monitoring SharePoint sites and applications.

5) Content Database Created: An SQL Server database that stores all site content, including site documents or files in document libraries, list data, and Web Part properties, as well as user names and rights. All the data for a specific site resides in one content database on only one computer.
