5. Managing Global IIS Configuration

Chapter 5. Managing Global IIS Configuration

Managing a server’s global configuration is a key part of Web site management and optimization. Web site properties identify the site, set its configuration values, and determine where and how documents are accessed. You can manage a server’s global configuration at several levels:

  • As global defaults

  • As site defaults

  • As application or directory defaults

You set global defaults at the Web server level, and all Web sites and applications on the server can inherit them. You set individual defaults at the Web site level, and they apply only to the selected Web site. You set application and directory defaults at the directory level, and they apply only to the selected application or directory. Unlike in Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0, changes you make to the configuration are applied automatically and you do not need to restart servers, sites, or applications to apply configuration changes.
