IIS, asp.net web application and web.config

I have an asp.net application deployed on IIS 6. Does a change to web.config file always restart the application? what about other files like within App_Code or bin folder?

Does IIS need a restart also?

What I have found is that when you make a change that effects multiple pages, you need to authenticate again.  Best practice is to work in a development environment and then move your modifications to "Stage".  This is the area where you test when pre-production.  While I develop, I believe I work in a .NET 4.0 Framework setting.  The servers that I move my code out to are on .NET 2.0-3.5, which is something else I have to be aware of while programming!

Since web.config is what your app looks at while running, you will need to do something to make sure it is looking at up-to-date code!

Also, I have come to the conclusion that if you want to change something on a production server, it will make the users' session expire.  Just know that whenever you change something in a live environment, you should be expecting some sort of repercussion!
