This is probably a fundamental question concerning IIS 7. I currently have a website running on IIS 7 on my local machine. I’ve noticed that when I type in a URL of the form http://localhost/styles/default.css, my web browser will open up the css file in notepad. However, if I use an imaginary nonexistant file extension, IIS tries to hand off the request to my website, which happens to be an asp.net mvc application. Because the [...]Continue Reading »
When installing the Management service for IIS7+ a self-signed SSL certificate is created and assigned, it has the name ‘WMSvc-ComputerName’. In the GUI version I can change this to a different ‘proper’ certificate installed on the server, so it is trusted by remote clients. The GUI module for the Management Service is not available when connecting to the server remotely. So I need to change it using the command line on the server itself. How [...]Continue Reading »

We recently had to move some of my websites from Apache to IIS 7 (on Windows Server 2008). Now I have to put my hands on it, and I found this application pools configuration (I obscured websites names for privacy): I don’t need ASP.NET since ColdFusion is our application server. My question is: what are exactly application pools? how do I configure them for a multi-site environment such as mine? What’s the “Applications” number meaning [...]Continue Reading »
Will a wildcard certificate work with a domain and a subdomain? http://example.com http://sub.example.com Can I setup a wildcard certificate to be used by these two? In the tutorials I have followed, they always use two or more subdomains without the main domain (tutorials here and here) Asked by Robert Dondo Simple answer is yes.

If I install the certificate example.com, then the first website work, but two other fail with the same message, as expected too. [...]Continue Reading »
My w3wp’s are recycling every 60 seconds after using too much virtual memory. I ran the IIS Debug Diagnostic Tool to capture a memory dump before the worker process recycled; the most interesting part seems to be this: Virtual Allocation SummaryReserved memory 4.88 GBytes Committed memory 328.27 MBytes Mapped memory 17.36 MBytes Reserved block count 524 blocks Committed block count 1082 blocks Mapped block count 43 blocks So that 4.88 GBytes of reserved memory seems [...]Continue Reading »
Our main site www.example.com has a regular VeriSign SSL certificate. However, we need ssl for our dev environment for accurate testing. Is it possible to use another ssl from a different (cheaper) provider for our dev.example.com and stage.example.com domains? We have a load balancer with different ip’s so having unique IP’s should not be an issue. Asked by SirrDon Yes It is most certainly possible. I’ve worked with a few companies who buy expensive certificates [...]Continue Reading »
