Remote Administration and Delegation in IIS7
In this screencast, we configure our IIS7 server for remote administration and delegation. The remote administration service in IIS7 is a new and powerful feature that allows us to connect securely to our remote IIS server using a firewall-friendly SSL connection. Additionally, we can choose to use traditional Windows accounts for authentication or choose the new IIS Manager user accounts instead.
We will walk through the steps you must perform as the IIS administrator as well as the experience for a remote administrator using delegated features.
Failed Request Tracing on IIS7
In this screencast, we see how to configure our IIS7 server for Failed Request Tracing (sometimes called FREB). Failed Request Tracing is a powerful new capability in IIS7 that allows us to easily set rules on our web applications, that once triggered will log that request to disk and pull in all the relevant trace information. This feature is immensely useful for troubleshooting running applications where attaching a debugger is impractical.
Installing PHP Applications on IIS7
In this screencast, discover how easy it is to get PHP up and configured on your IIS7 webserver using FastCGI. The popular PHP-based blogging application, Wordpress, is used to demonstrate.
Additionally, we see how quickly and easily we can integrate a PHP app with IIS7's integrated pipeline as we convert Wordpress to use IIS7's built-in Forms Authentication.
