IIS 8.5 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Install Web Server in Windows 8?

clock April 1, 2016 20:42 by author Anthony

Today I will discuss about how to install IIS on Windows 8. IIS or Internet Information Services or Internet Information Server is an HTTP web server that is used in Windows server operating system, from Windows NT 4.0 Server, Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003. This service is an integrated service in Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003 or as an add-on in Windows NT 4.0. This service serves as a support TCP / IP protocol that runs in the application layer (application layer). IIS also be the foundation of the Internet and Intranet Microsoft platform, which includes Microsoft Site Server, Microsoft Commercial Internet System and Microsoft BackOffice products more. Web Server can be run on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 and earlier versions of Windows.

The relationship between the Web Server and Internet Browser is a combination or existing computer networks around the world. Once physically connected, Protocol TCP / IP (networking protocol) that allows all computers can communicate with each other reply. By the time the browser requests a web page of data to the server the instruction data requests by the browser in containers in which a TCP transport protocol and sent to the reply address in this case is the next protocol is Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP). HTTP is the protocol in use on the World Wide Web (WWW) between computers that are connected in the network in the world. To recognize this protocol clearly is very easy once where every time you type http: // ... you have to use it, and bring you into the world of internet. Data that in passing from the browser to the Web server called the HTTP request which asks the web page and then the web server for data existing HTML and packed in TCP protocol and sent back to the browser. Data sent from the server to the browser called the HTTP response. If the data requested by a browser that can not be found by the Web server will meninbulkan error that often you see on the web page that is Error: 404 Page Not Found. It gives a taste of a process that is tridimensional, meaning that Internet users can read from one document to another simply by clicking a few sections of pages of documents (web) it. The process that starts from the demand webclient (browser), web server is received, processed, and process the results returned by a web server to a web client again carried out in a transparent manner. Each person can easily find out what happened to each process. In broad outline only web server to process all the input it received from its clients web.

HTTP Error 500.21 – Internal Server Error Handler “ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0″ has a bad module “ManagedPipelineHandler” in its module list.

And here is the solution to solve this error:
First, Run the "aspnet_regiis.exe" program from Command Line (in the Command Prompt) and type this syntax:

run %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe –i

European IIS 8.5 Hosting – HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Change Application Pool Identities in IIS 7/8 With PowerShell

clock September 1, 2014 12:04 by author Onit

This question was asked so many times, and in this occasion I am going to share with you how to change application pool identities in IIS 8 using PowerShell, there are several ways to do so, and one of my favorite ways to get and change information about an application pool is through the IIS Provider that’s loaded when importing the WebAdministartion module.



You can get basic information about the pool using the Get-Item cmdlet.

PS> Get-Item -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest | format-List *


In that picture you can see that a list of application pool settings and information is displayed, but you will also see that some seem hidden from you. ProcessModel contains the identity information in a property named IdentityType The one we want for the application pool identity is ProcessModel. You can retrieve the information from ProcessModel by using the Get-ItemProperty cmdlet.

PS> Get-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name ProcessModel

ProcessModel contains the property IdentityType that holds the application pool identity. Now, if you are one of those hip PowerShell folks you know that you can get this information without reading a long list on the screen with the following:

PS> Get-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name ProcessModel | Select-object IdentityType

But this is IIS and things work better if you change how you operate just a little bit. So, instead of using Select-Object to grab the IdentityType, I’m going to accomplish that in a slightly different approach.  Notice the –Name parameter below:

PS> Get-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name ProcessModel.IdentityType

It’s a bit unusual, but this will make it much easier to change the IdentityType with the Set-ItemProperty cmdlet. Before I show you how to change the application pool identity, the values for the identity are Int32 (numbers). here are the identities and their corresponding numbers.

LocalSystem = 0
LocalService = 1
NetworkService = 2
SpecificUser = 3
ApplicationPoolIdentity = 4

So, to change the application pool identity using the Set-ItemProperty to something like “NetWorkService” would look like this:

PS> Set-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name ProcessModel.IdentityType -value 2

Most of the time when an admin needs to change the application pool identity it’s because they want application pool isolation. This means changing the identity to a specific account and password.  Here is an example of how to do that:

PS> Set-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name processmodel.identityType -Value 3
PS> Set-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name processmodel.username -Value Administrator
PS> Set-ItemProperty -Path IIS:\AppPools\MyTest -Name processmodel.password -Value [email protected]

European IIS 8.5 Hosting – HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Configure Dynamic Website Activation in IIS 8.5

clock August 15, 2014 07:43 by author Onit

In this article we will showed you how to configure Dynamic Website Activation.

One of the best feature in the latest IIS 8.5 is the “Dynamic Website Activation”. What so cool about this feature? When the IIS servicing large number of configured sites (100 or greater, by default) this feature let the IIS Service not activate any of the sites when the service started.


What is The Function?

When IIS servicing a large number of configure sites (default: 100 or greater), IIS will not activate any of the sites (all of them at once).

Why Using This Feature?

This Feature only available in the latest IIS 8.5 before this version IIS will automatically activates all configures websites at once. This will bring some trouble in the resources, and memory if it’s service the large number of sites.

How This Feature works?

If IIS 8.5 service in a large number of configured sites (default: 100 or greater), This service will not activate all of the sites at once, instead of activate them all at once IIS will activate each sites one by one (only when it receives the first request of the sites) and by using this technique could reduce the amount of system resources require by IIS.

How to Configure This Feature?

As I mention before, if there are less than 100 sites configured then IIS will activate all sites at starts up, but if there are 100 or more. Then it will activate each site as it is accessed the first time.

Step by Step

  1. Open IIS Manager
  2. Double Click Configuration Editor

  3. Select System.applicationHost/webLimits

  4. Set the value of dynamicRegistration Threshold to the new Treshold Value ( the default is : 100)
  5. Restart IIS
