Deploying to IIS 7

Hello,

 

I have a Unigui application I'm trying to deploy to a Windows Server 2008 VPS, running IIS 7. If I deploy the standalone executable and the supporting files to "c:\inetpub\wwroot\MyApp\MyAPP.exe" everything works fine. If I comment out the first line of the working program and create a DLL, and install MyAPP.DLL in the same directory all I get is "connecting...".

 

I followed, and double checked, the instructions for deploying to IIS 7. If I right-click on the MyAPP folder, the IIS_IUSRS(ComputerName\IIS_IUSRS) user (though I'm not sure where that user comes from) has been given "Full control" to the folder and contents.

 

IIS seems to be working OK, because if I enter my URL without qualification I get the default IIS 7 banner page.

 

If I enter www.mysite.com/MyAPP (and every similar combination I can think of) I get the "connecting" message, and nothing is in the MyAPP\log directory.

 

I have a pool called MyAPPPool and an application called MyAPP under the Default Web Site, created according to instructions, AFAIK.

 

I have hardcoded the ext directory to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\MyAPP\ext-3.3.0\, ServerRoot is blank. UniGui: 0.85.0 build 870 Delphi XE.

 

I've never used IIS before, so I'm sure I'm doing something boneheaded, but I'm not sure what. Any suggestions?

Hi Jim

 

> If I enter www.mysite.com/MyAPP (and every similar combination I can think of) I get the "connecting" message, and nothing is in the MyAPP\log directory.

 

 

I am also new to IIS but try www.mysite.com/MyApp/MyApp.dll

I assume that since the standalone version can find the ext directory, the ISAPI version should too. I guess I need to research permissions in Windows IIS, since it appears to me that the permissions are there. I may just try switching to Apache, since I've already spent too much time on this, and I read that deployment is simpler with Apache. Thanks for your insights, though.

 

None of this of course is a criticism of uniGui. This is obviously user error, and uniGui rocks!

 

 

 

 

I think that is because it can't find the ext-3.3.0 folder or arent able to open the files for permission reasons.

Just as a follow up, I spent some time researching this, and discovered the IIS 7.5 has quite a different way of managing permissions and pools. The configuration is quite different from IIS 7.0, which is described in uniGUI documentation. I followed the advice I found on the web and everything looked correct to me, but it still did not work. I still think I'm probably doing something simple wrong, but if anyone has the steps for configuring for 7.5, I'd be grateful if you could post those here.

 

In the meantime I have moved to Apache, where I am making some progress.

 

Thanks, all.

If you provide me access to your VPS I will log and look into issue.

That's a very generous offer, thanks. If you are able to find the time I would be very grateful. My VPS at the moment is just a playground for experimenting, so I don't have any problem with giving you access. How can I get the credentials to you in a secure way? I couldn't find your email address listed.
