The Web Deploy 2.0 page on iis.net states the “Web Deploy Tool also enables administrators and delegated users to use IIS Manager to deploy ASP.NET and PHP applications to an IIS 7.0 server.” I’m (vaguely) familiar with using Web Deploy from Visual Studio to deploy an ASP.NET site. However I don’t see a way to deploy a PHP site via IIS Manager. The next page on Installing and Configuring Web Deploy states “The server must [...]Continue Reading »
I need to kill a user session if it’s causing trouble on the web server due a web application bug as a quick workaround. Is it possible to kill only a particular in memory user session from the IIS console somehow without recycling and killing all other sessions as well? Asked by pantarhei No. (and to pad out the 30 characters lower limit: Not from the server, unless your app has a method of doing [...]Continue Reading »
I have number of web instances in IIS server, where these websites uses connection strings to connect to the SQL Server data. There is single web.config file for all the website where there resides connection string which used by these websites. Few websites have its own web.config file where these uses connection string from this rather than using from common web.config. My doubt it, when we take the properties tab and click on general.

Is it possible to save rewrite rules configured on the level of a website to the applicationHost.config, while using IIS Manager? (I know how to do that manually) By default they are saved to Web.config file. I need it to get rules deployed to other servers by MSDeploy tool.

I’m facing an odd issue with the IIS Manager on Windows 7 (x64). At home, I have Win7 Professional, and when I check my IIS manager icon in the start menu, I see it links to %windir%system32inetsrvInetMgr.exe When I launch this from the command line, it works like a charm. At work, however, I have Windows 7 Enterprise (x64), and when I check my link in the start menu, the entry is exactly the same. [...]Continue Reading »
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. If I open up IIS Manager, I see a list of “connections” on the left hand side. In previous versions, I would be able to select an option to “connect to another server” or “connect to another machine”, but there is no such option visible anywhere here. The only thing in the list is my local machine. Even in the address bar, if I manually type in the server [...]Continue Reading »
I’m configuring Feature Delegation on IIS 7.0 to allow some customers to use IIS Manager for Remote Administration to configure their sites. There are some features where I want to remove delegation and make the feature read-only but allow the user to see the settings. This works fine. There are other features I want to configure to have no delegation at all but also hide them from the remote IIS manager when they connect to [...]Continue Reading »
We are running Microsoft Server 2003 with IIS. We would like to give our developers access to manage IIS (through IIS Admin) but do not want them to be administrators of the entire machine. Putting them in “Power Users” group does not seem to work. What permissions should we grant to our developers to allow them to manage IIS (e.g. add websites, modify app pools, etc.) without giving them full admin rights to the server? [...]Continue Reading »
What is the difference between adding MIME types in these 2 different situations? When in IIS 6 manager… Right click on the computer name (local computer) > properties > mime types Right click on the “Web sites” folder > properties > http headers > mime types I’m guessing that perhaps option 1 adds MIME types for FTP also? However if that were true i’d expect to be able to add MIME types specifically in the [...]Continue Reading »
