Click on the server name then go to output caching. Click Add Cache Rule then type the extensions - .aspx, .aspx.vb, .aspx.cs, .js etc. (not sure if you can do all on one) Then simply either tick the prevent all caching or untick user-mode caching and it should stop IIS from keeping a cache of the pages. Next time you do a full refresh, it should get the ...

Most likely your ISP is blocking port 80 inbound since they don't want you running web servers on a home connection. Try forwarding another port (like 8888) on the public side to port 80 on the local side and see if that works. If it does, that's your problem. And really, there isn't much of a workaround other than calling your ISP to ask to be unblocked ...

Attach WinDbg + sos and run !runaway. That will show you which thread is taking the most CPU time. Do a !clrstack on the thread to find out what it is doing.

Each virtual machine behaves exactly the same as a real physical computer on a network, so the host should be referred-to by its IP address, not by the name localhost. If you do not know the host's IP address, enter ipconfig in a command-prompt (cmd). It will be in the entry next to the adapter. The adapter itself depends on the network configuration used ...

I'm pretty sure the firewall doesn't block/inspect the localhost/loopback address (127.0.0.1) because it's your computer. So since the target and source are the same, there's really nothing to firewall. When you enabled port 81, or fully disable the firewall could you then access the 2nd site? If not, you may have an IIS configuration problem, and not a ...

Sure it can. Any software with vulnerabilities can be used as a back door. However, most hackers won't look specifically for IIS because it's not very big of a target. They'd much rather go for what tons and tons of people will use in their normal day because it's just easier. So long as you keep your software up-to-date and your files backed up and ...

You have 7.5.7600.16385. 6.1 Refers to your version of Windows and 7 refers to a generic version. It's not 6 or 8, but rather 7. Of your IIS 7, you're running the 7.5.7600.16385 version. You would most likely need to upgrade to Server 2012 to run IIS8. Below is a chart of the different OS Versions and their supporting IIS version. Windows XP - IIS 5.1 ...

The fact that you get a 404 error (rather than no reponse at all) means that you have a webserver running on your computer. Probably not a complete one, but one that at least follows the rules of HTTP. Skype is a common offender, but there could be others as well. To see which program is listening, type netstat -nab You have to be running cmd with ...

Eureka! Add this string value to the registry, without the quotes: HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers "c:\windows\system32\iisreset.exe" = "RUNASADMIN" Interestingly the same key is ignored if it's under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Looks to me like a security flaw...

Technically the answer is yes, but, you will not be using IIS if that is the case. As I said at your previous question, you can use Apache Web Server or Filezilla FTP Server if you want to transfer files.

Sounds like your app pool(s) is/are not starting. Open IIS Manager and click on Application Pools, then check the Status column and make sure the all say Started (or at least your DefaultAppPool says Started). If it's not started, right-click on the app pool and choose Start. If you get an error let us know what it is. Also, what does it say in your ...

I ran into this same issue. Rather than re-create all permissions though, just had to re-add WEBSERVER\Users with read permissions - it seems that sharing the folder maybe removed that one?

Question is answered I know, but you can always use Windows Key + R, type inetmgr then press either ENTER or CTRLSHIFT + ENTER. (I'm a keyboard fan)

SQL Server only requires IIS if you are installing the Reporting Services functionality as well. If you don't plan on using Reporting Services, then I would remove that feature from for SQL Server installation. Then you can remove IIS. To remove IIS, it varies depending on Operating System. It's a system component, so in Windows 7 it would be Control Panel, ...
