I am fairly new to managing an IIS 6 server and recently installed PHP 5. I am still learning about ISAPI and ISAPI filters. In the WSE within IIS Manager I have allowed PHP to be used. Is PHP running as an ISAPI application and if so why would no filter be showing up in the ISAPI filters property box of the website? Everything works fine, I am just trying to get a better grasp of this issue.
I have enabled compression in IIS6 on win2k3 server and the dynamic compression is working lovely but the static compression is not functioning. I have double checked the metabase settings and permissions on the Temp Folder (IUSR write permissions) but nothing is ever written to the folder and my static files (htm,html) are not sent with compression! FWIW I can compress them by adding the filetype to the dynamic compression metabase string and they work but this is not efficient. I think I must have overlooked something...
I've installed Imagemagick on our server and tested that it works using the little test that you do at the end of the installation. All is fine.
However, in order for my web site to seeuse it I assume I need to tell IIS 6 about it's presence? If so, how do I do it? If not, do I just need to allocate permissions to the Imagemagick folder (eg IUSR)?
I have virtual folder in IIS6 which has asp file as default and several jpg files. How to prevent JPG files download from server? I want to let execute asp file only and do not let users download jpg files.
we've been installing a web-app on a domain controller at work. Previously the app ran on WAMP but the new server has to run IIS, though PHP and MySQL is acceptable for now.
We've jumped through hoops to get it working as well as it is now, but we've hit a few snags which seem common, but none of the solutions work for us.
We were having problems where the MySQL extensions for PHP could not be loaded because of access rights. When we look at a phpinfo() output the MySQL information is completely missing. This happens with any user set in the application pool with the exception of Administrator. When we make that user the one that runs that application pool then the MySQL extensions load fine and the whole system works perfectly. Even if we change it to another admin user the system still won't work.
i recently set up a new testing web server(iis6), but can't view any of my websites hosted on my mac (osx leopard). I can ping the server from the mac, and RDP with out any problems, just can't view any websites. i've tried using the ip of the server (192.168.1.15) in the browser the server name but still no luck. server firewal has been disabled
When ever I edit php.ini the changes are not reflected in my PHP applications (I check using phpinfo). Even after restarting IIS (Right click on the computer in IIS > All Tasks > Restart IIS) the changes are not reflected.
The only way I found out how to update the changes is by restarting the whole server, but this is not pratical.
How can I get the edits in php.ini to reflect in my PHP applications without having to restart the whole server?
Customer wants to move his website in-house along with his email. The hardware guy installed a windows 2003 64-bit exchange server. I logged in with logmein and created a directory c:Inetputwwwroot hewebsite. Copied iisstart.html to the new dir. Put the company name in the iisstart file. Opened IIS6. Went to properties of the default website and pointed to the new directory on the home dir page. Added iisstart.html the Documents page and moved it to the top. Closed everything. Opened Internet Explorer 7 and put in http://localhost. All worked well. Brought up the new start page. Opened IE7 on my pc and put there ip address in and it also brought up the new webpage (tested the port 80 in the router). Said we were ready to go.
The hardware guy sent me an email stating that he was having problems with the 64-bit version and took the server back to the 32-bit version of windows exchange server. I logged back in with logmein and followed the same exact steps as above but it will not show the new webpage. Am getting a page not found error.
I have done the above on several 2003 servers and several xp pro machines. Always works.
Have done one 2003 exchange server. Went to a couple of those servers and made sure the default website settings were exactly the same as the ones that work. Still no help.
Downloaded an iis6 troubleshooting program from microsoft but cannot locate the error. I have been studying the II6 documentation and 2003 exchange server documentation. Went thru all the tutorials in google on iis6 and exchange I can find no help.
We are migrating an existing multi-site Windows2003/IIS6 web hosting system with
CFusion8 MS Access backend databases SQL2000 backend databases http and https site access
Windows2012 R2/IIS8.5 with CFusion10 MS Access backend databases (not updated) SQL2014 databases http and https site access
On the new system we are looking to add Plesk12 to give users easier management of their own websites.I am about to install the trail version of Plesk12 WebHOST.I have the following questions:
1. Can we use the plesk migration tool to move the websites from the old IIS6 to the new IIS8.5 server? 2. If not, am I right to think we would migrate from IIS6 to IIS8.5 manually and then import these websites into Plesk12 from the new server? 3. Can I migrate the existing websites piecemeal over onto the new server and into the Plesk control panel at the same time as creating brand new websites under the control panel? 4. Once Plesk is installed on the new IIS server is there a KB article on how to add all these existing websites to Plesk - I could not find one. 5. Is the local windows administrator account used for the install used to run any services?
I have a client who requested me to do a website for his credit union company.
Some of the pages are forms that require customers to enter crucial information ie ssn etc etc. I told him that this can be broken into..and therefore he would need a secure way of transmitting this information. Therefore would the SSL certificate work for this issue? Where do i get one? We have a dedicated server and do i need to configure anything on that? Where can i get a trusted SSL Certificate, and ofcourse help to install it.
I do web hosting (reseller); how much, in USD per year, do you think is a "reasonable" fee to charge clients for a shared SSL connection ?
The SSL is going to cost me $$ per year and I may have some use for it, but if clients want a shared SSL, instead of buying their own, I need to apportion the costs I incur somehow, and (maybe) make some small profit. I see the shared SSL as more of a service, but clients should pay _some_ $$ if they want to use one.
I'm just looking for some background information or a place where I can learn more about this.
Here's the problem:
The web site runs on a dedicated Apache server. There's 2 SSL certificates installed, one for e-commerce for https://www.mysite.com and one to help with the administrative interface for https://admin.mysite.com. I run a custom php application that forces the web page from http://www.mysite.com to https://www.mysite.com when going to an e-commerce page.
Generally everything runs Ok but a few times this year there has been a problem where the php application points to https://www.mysite.com/ecom.php but instead it gets https://admin.mysite.com/ecom.php and gets a page not found.
In discussing this with my web hosting company they claim they haven't changed anything but they do manage to fix the problem and get the web site working correctly again.
I generally figure that the web hosting company has done some type of maintenance on the web server and messed-up the dns entries or something for the SSL part of the web site but this is really outside my area of experience. I'm trying to understand what went wrong and where the entries are that determine when going to SSL which SSL certificate/URL is used.
