New Site for IIS 7 AppCmd samples

Steve Schofield, IIS MVP, recently set up a new site – http://www.appcmd.com – which is a great resource for commonly used appcmd scripts.  Appcmd is the new command line administration utility for IIS7.  I’ve used the Tech Preview of the PowerShell provider for IIS and I use the IIS7 Manager a lot but I still like to work with APPCMD an awful lot and this new site is definitely going to be top of my list for daily checks to see any new content.  Go take a look and let Steve know what you think.  Also if you have any … Continue reading New Site for IIS 7 AppCmd samples

MSDN Roadshow Newcastle – Review

On Friday 16th May 2008, Newcastle hosted the MSDN Roadshow event – www.msdnroadshow.co.uk.  This was the last Roadshow event of 2008 and if the other locations were anything as packed as the Newcastle one then I reckon they must have been great successes.  I was on hand as ever representing the UK Community showcasing VBUG, Developer Day events and the rest of the great work done by other user groups throughout the UK.  I got to speak to a lot of new faces and plenty of information was picked up from the UK Community Area where I was.  I hopefully … Continue reading MSDN Roadshow Newcastle – Review

Internet Information Services Resources Page
