Default IIS question

Currently when you install VS 2012, you get a default version of IIS express? Is that same the same as Casini which you got with VS 2010? If you already have IIS installed on a windows 7 box, will the two IIS versions clash at runtime or fight for control? On regular IIS you can configure SMTP server, can you do the same for IIS express, what is the interface if any between IIS express and SMTP server?

Hi there,

Just as before: please start new threads for new questions. In the post below you're asking many different questions covering multiple topics. Also, since it's not directly related to my book, you're better off posting in the General category here: http://p2p.wrox.com/asp-net-4-5-709/ as you'll attract more viewers.

That said:

Indeed.

No, it's not. That one was called the Development Web Server, while IIS Express is much closer to the real IIS.

No

No.

Not sure what you mean. You would either install an SMTP server from the real IIS, use an external server, or drop mail locally as explained in my book.

Default Chapter 19 - Deploying Your Website

Quick questions along these lines.

1) Clarificaiton: Does this Chapter primarily instruct in deployment on IIS 8? It appears like it applies to both 7.5 and 8.0.

2) Since VS2012 ships with II8, shouldn't that mean that the project should be deployed on a production server that has 8.0?

From my research, you cannot install 8.0/8.5 on Windows Server 2008R2. So if you're web server is a Windows Server 2008R2 machine with the web server role of 7.5 set up, will this project (or any project built in VS2012) deploy successfully and work as intended?

Any clarification here would be useful and appreciated.

Thank you.

It shows screenshots of 8, but they also apply to earlier versions. Page 749 says:

Quote:
Most of the steps in Windows 8 are identical to those in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012. However, the screens you see in the following exercise are taken in Windows 8 and are slightly different on the other operating systems.

Nope. ASP.NET 4.5 applications run on older versions of IIS as well, such as 7.x. It's the .NET Framework 4.5 version that makes the difference

Yes, see previous question. ASP.NET 4.5 sites can be run on IIS 7.x as well.

Cheers,

Imar

Default Yep and nope?

Yep and nope? Your responses on this blog seem to be punctuated with a lot of yeps and hopes? That is the same kind of dialog you hear in Hollywood Texas Cowboy western movies. Have you gone Texan on us Imar?

Have a good day :-)

Default Using Windows 10 when registering ASP.NET 4.5 with IIS

Hello Ivan,

I am at the point of preparing to publish my site (phase 1, anyway) to host provider server. I was following the instructions in Ch 19 for registering ASP.NET 4.5 with IIS, but it is evidently different with Windows 10. What would be the way to go about this step?

Thank You,
Michael

Windows 10 should be very similar to Windows 8 when it comes to IIS and registering ASP.NET. Which blocking differences do you see? If you can be specific, I might be able to help.

Actually, I overlooked an important sentence. "If you are hosting your website with an external hosting company, you can skip the following sections on installing IIS." I am, indeed, using an external hosting company.
