IIS and Web Server Role

  1. [BUG] IIS WS2016->WS2019 upgrade error

    I did an upgrade in situ from Windows Server Standard 2016 with GUI to 2019. All went well except IIS. On upgrading the Default Site the installer added two files iisstart.htm and iisstart.png. Having priority of Default Document of iisstart.htm higher then Default.aspx my Default Web Site lost its main page which is a nasty experience. Changing order in IIS Manager was enough.
    A bigger bug was to change the permission of c:\inetpub\wwwroot - DefaultAppPool was removed from permissions. When I added back "IIS AppPool\DefaultAppPool" to permissions, all came back to normal.
    I know that upgrade with apps is not…

  2. [BUG] Default recycling timers not applying properly when many AppPools

    On IIS 10, after exceeding unspecified number of pools created, the Set Application Pool Defaults feature is not applying recycling timers to newly created pools. The details are described on IIS Forum.

  5. IIS Module to Address Website Password Guessing

    A common technique for *********** Testers is to gain access to an account via brute force (many passwords against one account) or password spraying (one password against many accounts). Websites are a great target since they often lack the logging/alerting of these techniques. To address this some implement 2-factor yet this still provides the necessary feedback because only a successful authentication attempt will proceed to the 2-factor prompt.

    To address this I’ve create a PowerShell module which leverages Logparser to parse a website’s logs and identify such situations.

    https://github.com/phbits/WebsiteFailedLogins

    While it’s a suitable solution, the downside is it’s a…

  6. Allow the use of an IIS AppPools Admin to remotely control AppPools

    I would like to give my developers who are non-admins on the web server, the ability to control IIS AppPools for the websites they are developing. The ability to stop and start an IIS AppPools is an important part of development. I don't want to have to make them Administrators of the web server and I don't want them to have to use PowerShell to do this. I should be able to select an AppPool and give a specific user control of it without giving control to the other AppPools on the server, much like using IIS Manager Permissions to…

  7. SSL support for Application Initialization module

    The Application Initialization module does a good job at warming-up websites so that the user doesn't experience any delays. Unfortunately this doesn't work for web applications that are SSL-only (see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2843964/application-initialization-module-fails-when-web-site-requires-ssl). At the same time one of the recommended practices for web APIs is to serve them SSL-only (see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/security/enforcing-ssl).

    I would like to change the Application Initialization module to support application warm-up requests using the HTTPS-binding if one is available. For compatibility this could be an opt-in feature of the applicationInitialization configuration.

  8. Display useful error information when web.config uses URL rewrite and rewrite extension is not installed

    On IIS 8.5, if you attempt to access a web application that uses URL rewriting on a machine that does not have the rewrite extension installed, you get a generic 500 error page with no information about the cause of the error, and nothing about the error shows up in the Event Log. Failed Request Tracing also failed to produce a log file.

    IIS should have validations to ensure that the extension is installed when <rewrite> is present in web.config.

  9. Bad Request responded with 404.xx

    Hey,
    I've found two strange behaviours of IIS.

    Code Snippet
    <httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough" />
    <security>
    <requestFiltering>

    &lt;requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength=&quot;5000000&quot; /&gt;
    
    &lt;verbs allowUnlisted=&quot;true&quot;&gt;
    &lt;add verb=&quot;HEAD&quot; allowed=&quot;false&quot; /&gt;
    &lt;/verbs&gt;

    </requestFiltering>
    </security>
    Problem Description
    In this code snippet,

    Rejects the request if content size is bigger than 5 MBs. It responds with a 404. (404.13)
    Rejects the HTTP HEAD requests. It also responds with 404.
    Expected Behavior
    Since HTTP Status Codes are independent of the running platform, we expected a common message, not the IIS specific status code.

    For request limits, It should respond with 400 - Bad Request.
    image

    For ignored HTTP Method, It…

  10. Creating a task scheduler in IIS

    If you want to run a task on a schedule (as in every 10 minutes, every hour, the first day of the month, etc), you currently have to rely on external schedulers to trigger these tasks (windows scheduled tasks, azure jobs, etc). However for short running tasks, it should be possible to define a schedule in web.config, with IIS calling a page on schedule. This would make an IIS website a lot cleaner / self contained that having to rely on an external scheduler.

  11. Please fix FTPS implementation; PROT does not impose proper protection level.

    The above issue makes it impossible to use an IIS FTP Server with popular clients. Clients have started disabling any ability for nonstandard protocol negotiation.

  12. Please allow IIS Manager to manage remote servers

    IIS Manager is the only console that I use almost daily that cannot connect and manage remote IIS servers. The very some way as Computer management and other MMC consoles. I mean without creating IIS users.

  13. Get-IISAppPool Doesn't Use Latest Information

    I believe I found a bug in the Get-IISAppPool PowerShell cmdlet.

    Create a script with the following:
    * Check if an application pool exists using:
    Get-IISAppPool -Name "Something"
    Where "Something" indicates an application pool name.
    * If the application pool exists, display some text.
    * Otherwise, create the application pool.

    1) Open a PowerShell window (as administrator) and run the script.
    2) The application pool does not exist and is created (correct).
    3) Do not close the window and run the script again.
    4) The script again indicates that the application pool does not exist and tries to create it…

  14. Let's encrypt integration

    It would be great to integrate the ACME protocol in IIS. One of the reasons SSL isn't widely used is because it is complex and costly to set up.

    What I would really like to see is in the "edit bindings" window, when choosing a certificate, an option to choose instead Let's Encrypt / ACME. IIS would automatically request the certificate through the ACME protocol and would automatically renew the certificate.

    Obviously this would also be available through powershell (although keep in mind that primary users are likely to be unsophisticated GUI users, not sophisticated teams who run multiple instance…

  15. Make propeties name case-insensitive for creating app pools. (IIS, WebAdministration module)

    PowerShell is case insensitive language and so are the modules like WebAdministration expected to be.

    Does not work

    PS IIS:\AppPools> Set-ItemProperty .\DefaultAppPool -Name Enable32BitAppOnWin64 -Value $true

    Works

    PS IIS:\AppPools> Set-ItemProperty .\DefaultAppPool -Name enable32BitAppOnWin64 -Value $true

    Difference is only in capital and small letter 'e' in property name. Moreover, the first command doesn't even throw any error.

  16. Provide support for SHA256 Self Signed Certificates

    Currently, creating Self Signed Certificates in IIS only allows you to create SHA1 algorithm Self Signed Certificates. However, SHA1 is being deprecated in favor of SHA256, therefore, IIS Manager should support creating SHA256 Self Signed Certificates instead (or prompt as to whether you wish to create an SHA1 or SHA256 Self Signed Certificate)

  17. Add Global UrlRewrites Prior to assignment of AppPool

    I would like the ability to do url rewrites that can define/alter which site & AppPool will handle the request. Ie handled in the base process Before being being passed to any app pool process.
    This would avoid the need add/use an ARR proxy to achieve such mapping (which doesn't always work as a workaround).

  19. Allow all roles, role services, features to have the option to be installed under a new site in IIS rather than under the Default Web Site.

    Allow all roles, role services, features to have the option to be installed under a new site in IIS rather than under the Default Web Site. You should be able to choose to install say NDES role service, or ADCS Enterprise CA, or RDS roles under a separate website than the Default Web Site when adding roles and features to Windows Server. Also, would be nice to have multiple sites running on HTTPS using Port 443 this way and leveraging host headers to determine which site to load.
