Using the Microsoft IIS Manager

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by brokerem, Jun 2, 2017.

  1. RE: IIS manager as talked about in this link:

    https://support.winhost.com/kb/a628/using-the-microsoft-iis-manager.aspx

    I clicked on the IIS manager login from control panel and the download link is for v1.0 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=2299 assume would want the ...64 file for 64 bit machine?

    However in another link for the video https://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/iis-manager I see a download link
    IIS Manager for Remote Administration 1.2
    WindowsThis is a Microsoft Supported Download | Works With: IIS 7, IIS 7.5, IIS 8, IIS 8.5

    So, which one should I download? Are they the same thing with one being newer?

    Please advise which download I should do to work with Winhost.

    I assume this is what would be used to direct a site from http to https?

    Thank you ahead of time.

    I think both are valid, but I would use the second link (1.2) since it's newer. And yes, you can use IIS Manager to redirect a site from HTTP to HTTPS using URL Rewrite.
     
  3. We'll update that Control Panel link to point to the latest version of the download. Thanks.
