IIS 8.0 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: Recognizing and Handling.Net Server-Side (Output) Caching

clock January 29, 2024 07:41 by author Peter

A user's request does not go to the database every time they visit a website in order to answer every detail. As an alternative, some data is extracted directly, which speeds up and improves efficiency. This tactic enables the server to process numerous requests from various users without interfering with the database. Important information is stored in the server's memory so that it can respond to your request promptly.


Given that data is typically saved in databases, you may be asking how the server obtains, stores, and locates this data.

Thus, the Internet Information Services, or IIS, serves as the operation's beating heart.

Output Caching is the name of the operation.


Even the type of file and duration of storage are customizable. by using the easy steps listed below.

  • On your server, open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  • Access your web application by navigating through the Connections pane.
  • Give the "Output Caching" feature a double-click.
  • Examine the cached items, their expiration dates, and other pertinent details in the "Output Caching" feature.

But how can the cache be kept there?
Installing System is hence the first step.Net.Caching from the Nuget bundle

Caching in System.Web
You can implement caching within a server-side web application, usually hosted by Internet Information Services (IIS), by using the classes provided by the System.Web.Caching namespace. The caching method uses the server's RAM to cache data when you use the System.Web.Caching namespace in an ASP.NET web application hosted on Internet Information Services (IIS).

Create
HttpRuntime.Cache.Insert("yourkey","your value");To do CRUD activities with such caches, there are a few methods under this namespace.

This is how the cache is set. You might have noticed, though, that the code above doesn't indicate when this caching item expires. This suggests that unless the web application is terminated or restarted, the caching item won't be destroyed. As a result, you must also include an expiration.

Here's another method to get there:

HttpRuntime.Cache.Insert(
     string key,
     object value,
     System.Web.Caching.CacheDependency dependencies,
     DateTime absoluteExpiration,
     TimeSpan slidingExpiration
);

You are aware of the value and key in this case, but what about the other parameters?

Dependencies: When any of a cache item's dependencies are altered or eliminated, the cache item will be automatically cleared.

Nonetheless, if you would like it to stay in the cache until further specified expiration conditions (such absolute or sliding expiration) are satisfied or until it is manually deleted.

Absolute Expiration: The cache can have a precise expiration time that you specify. To set its value, there are three options:

  • Absolute Time of Expiration: AbsoluteTime belongs to the DateTime type. You designate a precise day and time for the cache item to expire. The cache expires when this date and time are reached.
  • Save.NoAbsoluteExpiration: This constant value means that the item will stay in the cache until it is manually removed, and it does not have an absolute expiration period.
  • Blending using Adaptive Expiration:  The slidingExpiration parameter needs to be set to NoSlidingExpiration if you are utilizing absolute expiration.

Declining Expiration
1. Sliding Expiration makes sure that the cache item lifespan will be increased by the interval value if the data is accessed within the designated time frame. For instance, a session with a 10-minute expiration is introduced.
TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30), NoSlidingExpiration, etc. are few examples.

2. Combining with AbsoluteExpiration: NoAbsoluteExpiration is required as the absolute expiration argument if sliding expiration is being used.



IIS 8.0 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: IIS Website Debugging Using Visual Studio

clock January 15, 2024 06:43 by author Peter

Start Visual Studio: Open the Visual Studio project or solution that is associated with your IIS website.

Configure IIS: Verify that your IIS website is set up and operational. If not, set it up by making a fresh website or utilizing an already-existing one.
Build Configuration: Verify that the configuration for your project contains debugging details. Usually, the "Debug" setting would be utilized.
Begin debugging: Click on the "Start Debugging" button in Visual Studio (or press `F5`). This will connect the debugger and start your application.
Attach to Process: To attach the debugger to an already-running IIS website, go to the "Debug" menu, pick "Attach to Process," and select the process that corresponds to your IIS application pool (in most cases, `w3wp.exe} for IIS worker processes).
Choose the Appropriate Code: Verify that the source code you wish to debug is the same one that IIS is using. Make sure the right project and build configuration are chosen by checking the configuration of the solution.
Establish Breakpoints: Whenever you want the debugger to pause so you may walk through the code and examine variables, place breakpoints in your code.
Debugging: You can now debug your IIS website once it has been attached. At the breakpoints, Visual Studio will pause, allowing you to step through code, examine variables, and troubleshoot problems with the debugging tools.

Keep in mind that in order to attach the debugger to the IIS process and adjust the IIS application pool settings appropriately, you should have the required permissions for efficient debugging.

You should be able to connect the Visual Studio debugger to your IIS website in order to debug it by following these instructions.



IIS 8.0 Hosting UK - HostForLIFE.eu :: How To Remove IIS On Windows Server 2012

clock November 17, 2023 08:07 by author Peter

Today's article will teach you how to uninstall Internet Information Services 8 (IIS8) from Windows Server 2012.


Step 1
To begin, enter your password into your Windows Server 2012 as Administrator. If your Server Manager does not launch automatically after logging in, open it by clicking the first button in the task bar.

When you launch the Server Manager, the following window will appear:

Step 2
On the Server manager you will see that IIS is already installed.

To remove the IIS go to the Manage option on the upper right hand corner and click on "Remove Rolls and Features".

Step 3
Now a Window will be opened that will inform you that you are going to removing the section. Just click on "Next" to proceed.

After that you must select a Server from the Server Pool. Since I have only one Server in this article, my default Server is Automatically selected.


Step 4
Once you click Next you will get a list (Rolls) from which click on the Web Server (IIS).

Now click "Next", then one more Window will open that will ask for permission to remove the features.

Step 5
You can select the features that are associated with IIS to be removed.

After clicking Next you must give permission to restart the server automatically if it's considered necessary, then click on "Next".

Step 6
Click on the "Remove" button and the process will begin.


When the removal process is complete, your Windows Server 2012 will be restarted because you already granted permission to do so.

Step 7
After restarting it will automatically show that the removal process had completed successfully.

You can also check this on the Flag that is present on the above right hand corner. Click on the Flag and following confirmation will be shown,



IIS 8.0 Hosting Germany - HostForLIFE.eu :: How to Use LogParser to Check Visitor IPs to a Certain Page?

clock February 21, 2020 10:50 by author Peter

Today I noticed we were getting an expanding measure of spam on one of our sform pages. I was interested to check whether the majority of the client IP locations were the same (in which case I'd simply add them to the IIS IP Restrictions list). To rapidly and effortlessly make sense of this I chose to utilize LogParser.

Other than simply questioning for the page however, I needed to add an extra condition to prohibit lines that originated from a certain  internal IP address that we use for checking.

Here’s a generic version of the query I used:
LogParser.exe -q:on "SELECT * FROM x:\wwwlogs\W3SVC1\u_ex130411.log WHERE cs-uri-stem='/SomePage/' and c-ip<>'10.10.1.100' >c:\temp\PageVisitors.txt"

I needed to see the full logged information for the request, but if I didn’t, I could have very easily just pulled the IP addresses using:
LogParser.exe -q:on "SELECT c-ip FROM x:\wwwlogs\W3SVC1\u_ex130411.log WHERE cs-uri-stem='/SomePage/' and c-ip<>'10.10.1.100' >c:\temp\PageVisitors.txt"

You can see that I'm funneling the outcomes to a content record (the ">c:\temp\PageVisitors.txt" part) so I can without much of a stretch manage the outcomes. You might likewise need to observe that I'm utilizing the "-q:on" flag which runs the command in Quite Mode. In the event that you don't set this banner then LogParser will show comes about one page at once. At the point when funneling to a content record as opposed to the summon prompt window, you clearly can't hit a key for "next page" so without this banner the question will really hang forever if there is more than one page worth of results.

IIS 8.0 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Enable Other Protocols (TCP, PIPE, MSMQ etc.) In IIS

clock February 7, 2020 11:18 by author Peter

By default it's available only in HTTP, HTTPS and FTP protocols Windows IIS though it supports others like TCP, PIPE protocols as well.

This blog demonstrates how to enable other protocols like TCP in IIS. Getting started, we know that Windows IIS by default supports only HTTP, HTTPS and FTP protocols and you will get those protocols in the binding window of IIS.

But other protocols like TCP, PIPE etc. Can be enabled by changing IIS feature, the below steps defines how to tune IIS features to enable TCP protocols.

Follow the Steps
     Open Control Panel=>Programs=>Click on Uninstall or Change a Program=> Click on Link ‘Turn Windows Features on or off’.

  1. Windows Features window will be opened, expand .NET Framework Advance Service.

  2. Expand WCF Services=>Select All the Features HTTPActivation, Message Queuing (MSMQ) Activation, Named Pipe Activation, TCPActivation, TCP Port Sharing .Click OK button.

Windows will apply the changes you made and you will get message popup, close the window (Clicking on close button), restart your machine and follow the below steps. Open IIS=> in Connections panel=> expand Sites=>Select your website=>Go to Right site Action Pane=> click on Advanced Settings=> Expand the ‘Behavior’ section In the field ‘Enable Protocols’ set these below values by commas, (http,net.tcp,net.pipe,net.msmq,msmq.formatname). Click OK button.

  • For activating TCP protocol set ‘net.tcp’
  • For activating PIPE protocol set ‘net.pipe’
  • For activating MSMQ Protocol set’ net.msmq’

Now you are done, if you follow the above steps correctly, you will get the mentioned protocols in the binding window.



IIS 8.0 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: PUT , POST & DELETE Verbs Not Allowed in IIS 8

clock January 31, 2020 11:42 by author Peter

Today, I will write about PUT, POST and DELETE verbs on the web application in IIS. And this is the error:

<h2>405 - HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.</h2>
<h3>The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access


After some troubleshooting the error was isolated to the actual fact that WebDav was put in on the server and was intercepting those requests for its own service use.
Rather than removing WebDav from the server, we tend to went searching for another answer. thankfully somebody on Twitter understood the problem and gave an example of changes to create to the client’s web.config get in order to disable (remove) the WebDav module for simply that specific website while not requiring any manual body actions on the server.

The code updates to create to your web.config file to resolve this error are:
<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <handlers>
      <remove name="WebDAV" />
      <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_32bit" />
      <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_64bit" />
      <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" />
      <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_32bit" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness32" responseBufferLimit="0" />
      <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_64bit" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness64" responseBufferLimit="0" />
      <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" type="System.Web.Handlers.TransferRequestHandler" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" />
    </handlers>
    <modules>
      <remove name="WebDAVModule" />
    </modules>
  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

I hope this tutorial works for you!

This article explains how to register ASP.Net with IIS when installing ASP.Net in IIS so that an ASP.Net page can make a request to recognize or respond from IIS. If it is not registered with an Internet Information Services then when you make an ASP.Net page request to the web server (IIS) then the web server will not get a response. And also we will get the error as in the following.

ASP.Net 2.0
“ASP.NET 2.0 has not been registered on the Web Server. You need to manually configure you Web server for ASP.NET 2.0 in order for your site to run correctly.”

(OR)

ASP.Net 4.0
“ASP.NET 4.0 has not been registered on the Web server. You need to manually configure your Web server for ASP.NET 4.0 in order for your site to run correctly”

Note: It is an available version of ASP.Net on your system.

Solutions Procedure
To find the location for the aspnet_regiis.exe file, go to the location C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET as in the following:


Kindly check, based on your system's bits (32 0r 64) for the .NET Framework location.

Kindly check whether you're using an ASP.Net version with IIS and based on that you have opened the specified version folder.

Go to a Visual Studio command prompt.
Then you will register ASP.Net with IIS as in the following command (aspnet_regiis.exe):
“C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe –I”

Copy and paste to the Visual Studio command prompt.
Then Enter.
You have finished the installation of ASP.Net.



IIS 8 Hosting - HostForLIFE.eu :: Using PHP runtime with IIS

clock July 5, 2019 11:47 by author Peter

In this post, I will tell you about using the PHP Runtime with IIS 8. First step you must do is download PHP. Download the "Non Thread Safe" distributive from the download page of the PHP Web webpage and install it utilizing the installer. On the off chance that you utilize a x86 server you may download an older version of PHP, yet in the event that you utilize a x64 server you can utilize just PHP 5.5.

Arrange IIS to run PHP using the accompanying guideline:
Verify that you Don’t select the "Webdav Publishing" part amid design.

Enable SSL and SOAP in PHP
Open the php.ini file in the folder where you have installed PHP.
Find and uncomment the lines below:
extension_dir = "ext"
extension=php_soap.dll
extension=php_openssl.dll

Install "URL Rewrite"
Install the "URL Rewrite" Module from IIS Application Gallery on the off chance that you utilize IIS 8 or IIS 8.5 or download and install it physically from http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite

Make endpoint

  • Make an endpoint and design URL mapping for every APS Application API.
  • Make a site on IIS which indicates the organizer where the endpoint's records are spotted.
  • Arrange redirection for every APS administration to the relating PHP script.

You may utilize the accompanying sample of Web.config which demonstrates to design the redirection from administration Urls "/applications" and "/associations" to "applications.php" and "organizations.php" respectively:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
   <system.webServer>
       <rewrite>
           <rules>
                <rule name="APS Application API" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="([_0-9a-zA-Z\-]+)(.*)" />
                    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">
                        <add input="{R:1}" pattern="^applications$" />
                        <add input="{R:1}" pattern="^organizations$" />
                   </conditions>
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="{R:1}.php{R:2}" logRewrittenUrl="true" />
