Upgrading SubText, IIS7, Windows 2008

image Bit Armory, Inc. has decided to finally make the move to IIS7 for production.  Let's hope it goes well.


First Impressions:

  • Performance seems a little better
  • Better ASP.NET MVC support
  • Easier Setup

I did have a problem with Subtext and IIS 7 yelping back an error:

"System.Web.HttpException: Request is not available in this context"

Thanks to Lance Fisher, the fix was easy, simply set "Classic .NET AppPool" in Manage Web Site > Advanced Settings ... should do the trick.



Hope that helps!
