Manipulate IIS with VFP

Manipulate IIS with VFP

Manipulate IIS with VFP


I need a program in VFP to create new website in IIS. My program already create the folder everything I need (in wwwroot) including all HTML pages, ready to start.
But each time I run this program (when I have a new client), I have to manually open IIS manager then create a new website, edit the bounding, root folder, application pool, default document, then start the web-site. aaarrrrk ! :(

Is there a way to add this part in my program? like a script that can be run from VFP to create and stat website automatically so I don't have to open IIS manager anymore?

Thanks for you help


RE: Manipulate IIS with VFP

OK gang,

I think I found what I need, sorry to waste your time with my problems.

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list apppool "www.yoursite.com" /config /xml > c:\myapppool.xml
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /in < c:\myapppool.xml

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list site "www.yoursite.com" /config /xml > c:\mywebsite.xml
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add site /in < c:\mywebsite.xml

Thanks to all anyway
