Microsoft IIS 10.0 – Configuring websites

How to install Chocolatey on Windows 10

In this recipe, we are going to configure the website property. We will explore basic settings and advanced settings. Also, we will cover the settings limit access to the website.

Getting ready

To step through this recipe, you will need a running IIS 10 server and administrator user account to edit the website settings.

How to do it…

  1. Open Server Manager on Windows Server 2016. Click on the Tools menu and open IIS Manager.
  2. Expand the IIS server ( WIN2016IIS). We get the listed application pools and sites.
  3. Click on mysite.com from the connections pane, and you will see the properties of mysite.com in the Actions pane. We get the Basic Settings… and Advanced Settings…:
  1. Click on B asic Settings…, and you will get the Edit site property displayed.
  1. The Edit Site window shows you the selected website and your assigned application pool.
  2. The Physical path is the path of the website application files, located in the wwwroot folder. You can customize the Connect as… option and test your settings to check whether it is working or not in a browser.
  3. Now let’s move on to configure the Advance Settings… of the selected website.
  4. Click on mysite.com. In the Actions pane, you get the Advanced Settings… option. Click on Advanced Settings…, and you will get the advanced settings window:
  1. Advanced Settings has four groups of settings: General, Behavior, Failed Request Tracing, and Limits.
  2. In General, you can change the Application pool, website ID, website Physical Path, Physical Path Credentials Logon Type, and Preload Enabled.
  3. In Behavior, you change Enabled protocols, which are either http or https.
  4. You can configure the settings of Failed Request Tracing. Directory is where you store your tracing information log, tracing service enabled as true or false, and maximum number of trace files.
  5. You can also set the Limits of access to your website on the basis of connection timeout, maximum bandwidth per second, maximum concurrent connections, and maximum URL segments.

How it works..

In this recipe, we had an overview of the website mysite.com from steps 1 to 3. We went through the Connections pane and expanded the Sites folder to get the properties of mysite.com. From steps 4 to 13, we discussed the basic and advanced settings configuration and customization of the website mysite.com. We understood Failed Request Tracing and how to limit the concurrent connections of mysite.com.
