IIS7 Application Pool Managed Pipeline

Posted on 2008-11-11

I have windows web server 2008 and IIS7.

In my IIS7, several weeks ago, I received instructions to setup my Application Pools Managed Pipeline to Classic, from Integrated.

Now, I don't remember where I was told to do that or why I did that.

Can someone tell me why someone would do that?

    You go: IIS Manager > Application Pools > (Select one) Basic Settings > Managed Pipeline Mode.

    Why you'd do that? Well, I think that there are many good reasons, but have a look at this link, it summarises them pretty well:
