IIS logging and incoming requests

Nginx reverse proxy and IIS

I’m using nginx as a reverse proxy for website running on IIS 7.5. Website is bound to sub-1.foo.bar. Nginx configuration looks like this: server { listen 80; server_name sub.foo.bar; location / { proxy_pass http://sub-1.foo.bar; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_set_header X-Accel-Expires 0; proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; } } What I want to do is forward requests which come to sub.foo.bar (linux machine with nginx) to sub-1.foo.bar (windows machine with IIS and my website). However what […]

IIS 7 desktop icon cannot be renamed to “IIS Manager”

If I take the IIS manager shortcut on my desktop, which is named “Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager” by default, and rename it to “IIS Manager”, it sets the name right back. However, if I rename the shortcut to “IIS” or “Foo” or something else, it renames the shortcut correctly. What is this happening? Note: I did some more experimenting and found that even if you take the path %windir%\system32\inetsrv\InetMgr.exe and make a completely new […]

How do I import certificate (.CER) in IIS

I have created certificates based on this tutorial: http://ondrej.wordpress.com/2010/01/24/iis-7-and-client-certificates/ Then I have imported “MyPersonalCA.cer” on IIS host server based on this tutorial: http://www.networksolutions.com/support/installation-of-an-ssl-on-certificate-microsoft-iis-7-x/ I had to import the certificate via MMC, because IIS is giving me an error: “Cannot find the certificate request associated with this certificate file.

How to configure WCF Service to AutoStart in AppFabric when the services reside in the website root

I’m trying to configure my WCF services under WIndows Server 2008 R2’s IIS and AppFabric to auto-start, but the steps listed at MSDN are possible only when the services reside in an application, but in my case, the .svc files reside directly in the site root. This way, the ‘Configure WCF and WF…’ shows as ‘…for Site’ and do not show the options for auto-start, as it would do if the application were hosted under […]

IIS 408 Logging

We have some web systems that in the past have experienced HTTP 408 response codes when making a request. They can happen at any time, there doesn’t seem to be any pattern to them. The problem we have is that the client request goes through a TMG gateway, and IIS never logs the 408. The last request I see is a 200, and subsequently a client received a 408. Do 408’s make it to IIS […]

Because there are a lot of deploys done on the site I don’t want to put the pages in wwwroot because they will get erased at the next […]

IIS with ASP MVC vs nginx with php preformance

I’m wondering what does asp mvc performance look like in comparison with php on nginx. IIS itself is much more demanding than nginx. But does it start to benefit at some amount of users? 1) Let’s say I have a machine 1.6GHz and 1.75GB RAM (parameters form the smallest reserved hosting on Azure). Will they perform similarly? How many viewers will be required to balance the initial IIS requirements? 2) Let’s now talk about a […]
