Website Property page mapping between IIS 6 and IIS 7.

Ever wonder where to configure HTTP KEEP-ALIVE in IIS 7.0, or where to configure detail error message to be sent from ASP scripting engine. When I started to learn about the new IIS 7.0 IIS Manager, I always get frustrated coz it is quite different from the normal ‘right mouse – property’ configuration theme in IIS 6. But now, after I get used to the new interface, when I go back to my IIS 6 box, I got lost again :) 


So how much different in term of IIS UI between the two versions? I took a few minutes to do a quick mapping from IIS 6 website property page to the new IIS 7.0 IIS Manager:

  1. In Vista “home premium”, some of these features are missing, like the “http headers”-section. Crippling without good reasons.
