Hacking IIS’s AppHost Directly-Week 18

Last week I covered IIS 7(.5)’s distributed and delegated configuration system.  This week I’ll take it a step further and look specifically at editing applicationHost.config in a text editor (e.g. notepad) to make more advanced configuration changes.

While it’s not ‘hacking’ per se since it’s fully supported, this topic covers ways to get under the covers to make more advanced configuration changes.  This week’s video shows how easy—yet powerful—it is to understand and utilize IIS’s configuration system directly.

This is week 18 of a 52 week Web Pro series on various web administration related tasks. Past and future videos can be found here.
