IIS is Internet Information Services, the web server included with Windows Server operating systems. All current versions are built on a modular architecture; modules can be added or removed individually so that those required for specific functionality are installed. The full installation of IIS includes HTTP, security, content, compression, caching, logging and diagnostics.

Hi Experts,

I uploaded my application on my live server, whcih uses TCPDF, but I am getting the following error.

Warning: fopen(file://C:\inetpub\wwwroot\DICE-questions\reports\5\Poposki_Aleks-Raw.pdf): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\aces-project.com\dice-questions.aces-project.com\utilities\tcpdf\include\tcpdf_static.php on line 1854
TCPDF ERROR: Unable to create output file: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\DICE-questions\reports\5\Poposki_Aleks-Raw.pdf

Open in new window


Both my development and live servers are IIS, and I think I have setup appropriate privileges to the directory, but I am still getting the error.

Obviously the error is pointing to the TCPDF Library, but how can I find out what line of my code triggered this. I remember in the earlier versions you can see a orange table with the error stack.

Thank you,

In a meeting we were told that it is possible to know or identify if a user hit a specific page and it’s contents even if the page is locked.  We understand that when a page has a lock it means SSL and that the data to/fro from the site to computer is encrypted.  Is this possible that even thought the page has a lock, there is  a way to identify the encrypted page that the user visited and identify the contents, if it has form or just regular page?

Hi Guys,

Having an issue where people are unable to setup out of office in the outlook client. "your automatic replies cannot be displayed because the server is unavailable"
We use Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2016 clients, it's the regular issue where you can set it with OWA but not Outlook - Something to do with EWS by the sounds of it!

There's a lot of info online which I've been reading into and following, I feel like I'm making progress but the actual problem is still occurring.

Autodiscover was missing externally so I've added this and it's now successful when using testconnectivity but when I use the "Automatic Reply/EWS" option, it's succeeding until the bottom where it says the below:

      Creating a temporary folder to perform synchronization tests.
       Failed to create temporary folder for performing tests.
       
      Additional Details
       
ErrorADUnavailable: Active Directory is unavailable. Try again later.
Elapsed Time: 2832 ms.

Can anyone advise on what I may be missing? All the URLs have been entered when I test the autodiscover within outlook.
I'm unsure if the fact it's saying AD is unavailable is related.

Thanks,
Dom

I have tested the connection of client computers to the System Center 2016 (SCCM) 2016 server by typing in the following URL addresses from the client computers and I then receive the results shown in the screenshots below.

Are these the results I am supposed to receive indicating that everything is set up and working properly or what do the results of this test mean based upon this output?

http://<yourservername.domain>/SMS_MP/.sms_aut?mpcert
http://<yoursiteservername.domain>/SMS_MP/.sms_aut?mplist

Hi Guys,
I have asp.net application which published on a Saas environment. My customers are connecting to this application login page without any issue.

Recently I have one customer that complain that he can't login to the application and he is getting this error (see attachment.)
In my understanding its related to the viewstate and key machine, but still I can't find the real cause of this issue. Again it happens just for one customer.



Thank you.

What are the differences between the IIS & IIS 6 managers within Server 2016?

Do the exact same values exist in both the IIS & IIS 6 managers?

Will modifying one of these values within the IIS manager be reflected within the same entry within the IIS 6 manager?

Or are there any values that are truly unique and only exist within either the IIS or the II 6 manager that don't exist within the other manager?

Hello, i have a server 2012 R2 (with IIS installed) - now we have an E: drive where we are going to hold just dummy files. i want the files to accessible over the web.

Now when i put the server ip's in my browser, i just see the IIS page. Only things i did so far, was enable directory browsing, and added virtual directory to the E: drive on the server.

What am i missing here?

I'm trying to achieve the following via IIS:

1. Redirect requests for App-A to Server-A

2. Redirect requests for App-B to Server-B

3. Redirect everything else to Server-C

I have 1 & 2 working via simple redirect rules:

1.

Requested URL: Matches the pattern

Pattern: ^App-A

Action type: Redirect

Redirect URL: https://Server-A.fqdn/App-A

2.

Requested URL: Matches the pattern

Pattern: ^App-B

Action type: Redirect

Redirect URL: https://Server-B.fqdn/App-B

3.

I haven't sorted this one out yet.

The following is not working:

Requested URL: Does not match the pattern

Pattern: ^App-A, ^App-B

Action type: Redirect

Redirect URL: https://Server-C.fqdn/

Seems that the requested path is not preserved and appended to the redirect URL therefore the destination is unreachable.

Hi all,

TIA.

I plan on having a small public facing web site to allow for licensing of a client app sitting on the server I use for internal use.

I understand the best way to do this is through the DMZ. I have not done this before and I want to ensure I do this properly, is the attached diagram correct or should I be going in a completely different way?

Thanks

Hi,
My client has wildcard certificate(comodo)on multiple servers. Mostly AFAIK IIS 8 and cisco asa.
I need to renew wildcard comodo cert on multiple servers.
Do I need to create cert request on IIS but not with renew option?
https://weblog.west-wind.com/posts/2014/May/08/IIS-SSL-Certificate-Renewal-Pain


Do I need to mark old cert and than create cert request

or do I need mark IIS server and than create cert request option?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji0-HgB4wek
So,to sumarize.Create cert request on one server,import cert and  then export(pfx) and move it and import to another IIS server?
When I create cert request does this information(organizational unit,organization…)must match with old cert and if so how can I find those information on old cert?IT engineer who has purchase cert last year doesnt work here anymore.

I have a website that the app pool starts, but after about a minute or so, keeps on shutting down taking our website down.
I have restarted the server, but the app pool still shuts down.   The only change I made yesterday was on my domain, changing the password policy from 8 to 13 characters yesterday, but I can't figure that would affect it.  How do I find out what causes the app pool to shutdown.  The event logs don't show anything really, I'll double check them.

Hi Experts,

Tomorrow I need to transfer a new WordPress site from my localhost to live, and I wanted to get some feedback on the easiest way to this, including design, content and settings?

In my mind I need to

1- Install WP Live
2 - From local export the db as .sql
3 - Within .sql search and replace http://localhost with http://www.domain.com, then replace the db on live site.
4 - FTP my parent and child theme
5 - FTP my content directory
6 - Install any plugins

Am I missing anything?

Thank you,

Hi Experts,

I used to be able to access my localhost via http://localhost or http://mylocalip

Recently I changed my router with my Internet company, but made sure that I set my IP to Reserved, and when I do ipconfig, I use the correct IP address that I was using, but I cannot access my localhost anymore with my IP.

I am not sure if this happened with my router change, or something else, but I would appreciate any help.

Hi,

I'm doing a pen test remediation and they have flagged up default IIS files present on our Exchange and other servers (see wording below). I've scoured the web but can't find any conclusive guides for a safe way to do this. If i go into IIS on these servers, click on the root and then Default document i can see a list of files. If I remove these will this solve the vulnerability and more importantly will it not break anything?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

Description
Default files have been found on the server. These may often contain dangerous script examples,
administrative interfaces, or configuration information.
The presence of default Web Server files also indicates that the Web Server hardening procedure needs
improvement, and this could indicate to an attacker that further vulnerabilities may exist due to a
weakness in server management practices.
CVSS v2 Vector (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

Solution
Remove the default files from the server and review server hardening procedures to ensure default files
are removed during the server build.

Information
Default IIS7 files found on 4 externally facing IP addresses

Running WordPress site on IIS 10 from localhost using actual host-name simultaneously with the real site.

I have a site running on Apache ("site.com", ip: IP1) connecting to database ( DB1)

I am planing to move the site from apache to IIS10, I already moved the files.
Can I have a URL ("site.com", looking at localhost not going through internet) connecting to the same database ( DB1)

So that I can make sure its working before connecting the real IP. Not sure if this makes sense.

Thanks

Hello, I have been working on a project with our network team to stand up NDES on our Subordinate CA. I went through the process published by tech net to install the NDES role on the server but during the process it seems to have broken IIS. I can get to the certsrv website because its showing a 503 error. I am not sure where to start I have researched a bunch and cant seem to find a resolution. Where do I look to resolve this and where do I start?

I have tried the following

Thanks,
