IIS and Web Server Role

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Support FQDN that end in '.'

    We use Windows Embedded with a website that needs to work with HTTP Host header values of "machine-name.local.". Http.sys fails on such host headers. We need a way to configure http.sys to allow such host header values.

    BTW we know the FQDN is good because it routes to the machine.

  4. Bug: request.servervariables server_protocol doesn't report HTTP/2

    On IIS 10, when serving a page over HTTP/2, calling Request.ServerVariables["SERVER_PROTOCOL"] returns HTTPS/1.1 and not HTTPS/2.0.

    This makes it impossible to accurately identify the protocol version in use at runtime.

  5. Please add some sort of GUI management for IIS

    I don't care if it's via Azure Server Management tools or the Server 2016 server manager, but it would be really nice to have a minimal GUI for managing IIS.

  6. Add setting to disable "Server" header in responses

    For security purposes, it would be useful to be able to easily disable the "Server" header that is sent by default in IIS HTTP responses so that the web server (IIS) and its version remain private.

  8. 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…

    Component: Powershell IIS Module, specifically Add-WebConfigurationProperty

  10. Web Deploy Snap-In Bug Report

    First of all, the Web Deploy 3.0 PowerShell SnapIn is really good. it takes away the complexity of the msdeploy.exe tool and can be implemented in a PowerShell Tool very well. But i came across two Bugs which have to be fixed to make this tool really GREAT. First and most of all, the Sync-WDSite cmdlet accepts Publishsettings, either as -sourcesettings or -destinationsettings. But if the Publishsettingsfile is not on the Desktop, and doesn't have this name: Microsoft.Web.Deployment.PowerShell.PublishSettings, the cmdlet throws an error. so i had to workaround this issue by simply copying and renaming the correct publishsettingsfile to the…

  11. PHP Windows Event Viewer Support (syslog)

    PHP supports a command called syslog which writes to the Windows Event Viewer on Windows machines.

    Can you support the following:

    -Allow selecting the special value syslog in the php configuration manager
    -When enabled (or upon install of PHP x.x.x version) auto-create the needed registry entry to make this work:

       [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\eventlog\Application\PHP-x.x.x]
    

    "TypesSupported"=dword:00000007
    "EventMessageFile"="%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\PHP\PHPvxx\phpx.dll"

    Adjust the event log permissions accordingly

    extract current permissions on command line using: wevtutil gl application >temp.txt
    edit line "channelAccess", e.g: channelAccess: O:BAG:[...]
    Remove any brackets staring with (D;; and containing any of your SIDs
    add the following at the end of the channelAccess line (A;;0x3;;;S-1-5-17)(A;;0x3;;;S-1-5-32-568)(A;;0x3;;;S-1-5-20)

    grant…

  12. PHP 7 - php_mysql.dll error

    When you install PHP 7 with the Web Platform installer; by default the installation flags errors in the C:\Windows\Temp\PHP70error.log saying phpmysql.dll does not exist

    In IIS this PHP extension is enabled by default even though it was depreciated in version 5 and fully removed in PHP 7

    By default php_mysql.dll needs to be commented out or removed altogether from the extensions list and the error goes away

  13. PHP 5.6.24 Adjust recommendation

    Once PHP 5.6.24 is installed via the Web Platform Installer, when you go to PHP Manager within the web server and change the config errorlog to the special value "syslog"....the recommendation screen pops up saying The PHP directive "errorlog" is using a non-existent directory.

    Can you account for the special value syslog?

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  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 native support for processing X-Forwarded-For headers

    Right now, the only supported way to do this is with the ARR Helper which is a module hosted on a blog site that periodically goes down. With the importance of load balancing and SSL termination in today's modern infrastructure, this should be in the core product.
