Restart web-site remotelly , IIS 7.5

Hi,
I created IIS user and give him rights to configure particular web site using IIS manager on his computer.
Sometimes he needs to restart the web site but there is no option to do it.
Please advise.

Are you talking about restarting IIS from another computer ?


If you need to restart iis it is simple

iisreset computername
OR
sc \\computername stop w3svc
sc \\computername start w3svc

In order to restart IIS Web sevices, local administrator rights are required.  Does the user have admin rights to the server?

Lat say you are hoster and you want to give your client the permission to restart ONLY his web-site. He already can edit the content.
Giving him an administrator rights does not look like wise option...

You can do some measure or delegation using webdeloy:

However I am not sure if you will have restart site permissions (though you can recycle app pools etc..)


You will need to grant Administrator permissions in order to restart a website.

Some reading from the IIS forums on this:
