Local IIS Instance

By Lex Li

This page shows you how to use Jexus Manager to manage local IIS instance.


There are several issues with IIS Manager that you might not be able to use it to troubleshoot IIS configuration issues,

  • IIS Manager strictly requires administrator permissions.

  • When a site configuration contains errors, IIS Manager shows an error dialog that tells nothing useful. (A 500.19 error page would be showed when accessing such a site.)


Jexus Manager Benefits

Jexus Manager can run as a normal user to navigate the settings, and its exception dialog provides the same or even better error message when an error in configuration is detected.
