Extending IIS With ASP.NET 4.5 On Windows Server 2008 R2

This is not something I need for the series of posts I am currently writing on the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client Scale-Out Deployment as my web server is running Windows Server 2012, but you may be performing the install on Windows Server 2008 R2 so I thought I would include this for completeness.

If you are running Windows Server 2008 R2 then extending a website with ASP.NET 4.5 required the use of the command line.

Open a Command Prompt with Administrative permissions and type the following and then hit Return:

cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\

Then type the following and hit Return:

aspnet_regiis –i

Once the command has finished running, the website will be extended with ASP.NET 4.5 and be ready for the Session Control Service to be installed.

How To Rewrite A Sub Domain To A Directory In IIS

When I signed up with my current web host the deal was limited to six domains and unlimited websites; a restriction I figured I could live within as a lot of what I intended to do would be in sub-domains and the unlimited websites allowed me to have each sub-domain in an individual website.

However, since I signed up they have, without giving any form of notification, changed the deal so it is now unlimited domains and only six websites. I’m currently in a position that I have five domains and twelve websites without the ability to create another website; the control panel shows me as having 12 of 6 websites. The only positive is that they have not, as yet, required me to trim down the number of websites I have.

I therefore spent a little time yesterday looking for a resolution to this problem. Continue reading
