Microsoft IIS 10.0 – Testing uploaded web pages

How to Setup a Node.js Application Using PM2

In this recipe, we are going to test the website v4mysite.com. We have already created and configured HTTP/2 on v4mysite.com and uploaded the .NET web application pages.

Getting ready

To step through this recipe, you will need a running IIS 10.0 instance. You should also have a configured HTTPS website and an administrative account.

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. Expand the Sites folder; you have three websites listed here: mysite.com, v2mysite.com, and v4mysite.com. We are going to test v4mysite.com.

 

 

  1. Click on v4mysite.com and go to the Actions panel. You will see the Browse v4mysite.com option, in which there are two URLs available: http://v4mysite.com:80 and https://v4mysite.com:443.
  1. Go to the Actions panel, click on Browse v4mysite.com on 172.16.15.61:443, and you will get a page as shown in this figure:
  1. In Internet Explorer, you will get the v4mysite.com website on HTTPS. Now you have to press the F12. You will get the developer window. Refresh the website. Now you should be able to see that under the Network tab, the protocol highlighted is HTTP/2.

 

 

  1. Let’s open the http://v4mysite.com:80 website from the Browse website option:
  1. Here we can see that we are browsing the v4mysite.com using HTTP.

How it works…

In this recipe, we first opened IIS Manager and reviewed two different type of website browsing options. We tested the HTTPS version of v4mysite.com and saw that it was functional over HTTP/2.

We also tested it with HTTP and successfully used v4mysite.com using the protocol.
