IIS 7 Application Pool Setup - Each site in it's own pool?

Hi Folks

I'm desperately trying to figure out how to set up my IIS 7 Server so that the default is for each web site I create is automatically placed into its own Application Pool. I've read document after document but for some reason it's not sinking in.

Can someone explain it to me in words of one syllable so I can understand how to set it up? :)

Cheers
Chris

Unfortunately, it isn't automatic. You will have to manually create a pool when you create a website.
To create a new pool, right click Application Pools and select New Application Pool and select NET version and whether it is Integrated or Classic.
Then for the web site, select Basic Settings, and select your new pool from the list.

Hi Peter

I'm using WebsitePanel 2.00 at the moment, mainly because we are trying very hard to automate creation of websites via our WHMCS application. Would there be a way to do this via WebsitePanel?

Hi again Peter

And... what is the difference between "Integrated" and "Classic" ?

Classic , I think, is like the ASP.NET2.0 on IIS 6, for Integration mode, the application needs to be migrated to new format and various sections for the web.config file will need updates for things like Modules, Handlers and Identity Impersonisation sections.
