Making .htm/.html files parse as .asp files

Posted on 2012-04-02

I am running windows 2008. and have set up IIS 7.5 on the server, with all of the settings to make asp run under 7.5. I have a site where it parses .htm as .asp files, and it is a local setting in my web.config.

However, I will at some point have a lot more sites than this on my server, and really dont want to go into each and everyone of these sites. To add in setting to parse .htm as .asp.

So I did a search to see if there is a way to make this work, and came across this link.

http://www.amixa.com/blog/2011/03/31/iis-7-and-iis-7-5-script-map-htm-to-asp-dll/

And I have tried doing this, and either I am doing this wrong, or I am missing some setting somewhere that makes all of this work.

I just want .htm to be parse as .asp without having to do it site by site basis. So any help on this would be appreciated.

This is the setting that I have in my web.config file that does parse everything correctly.

      <handlers>
                        <add name="ASPClassicforHTM" path="*.htm" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\windows\system32\inetsrv\asp.dll" resourceType="File" requireAccess="Script" preCondition="bitness64" />
                        <add name="HTM-TO-ASP" path="*.htm" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\windows\system32\inetsrv\asp.dll" resourceType="File" requireAccess="Script" />
                        </handlers>

And it resides in the system.WebServer section of the web.config.

Instead of the individual site web.config change it in the C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config it should now be global for all new sites

you will have to restart the iis server

I will give this a try tomorrow and see what comes of it, I didn't think to restart the server, I thought just restarting IIs is all I would have to do.
