    Web based IIS administration (ADSI)

    Overview

    Sorry I've not been around for a while boys and girls - but what with holidays (mine and staffs) etc I have been a busy bunny over the last few months (the bit that wasn't spent in Bali anyway ). So just to make ammends here's a web class I've been writing for web based IIS Webserver administration class that some of you might find interesting.

    If you want to use the class then download the attached iiscls.inc file rather than cutting and pasting the code below - I've cut it up some to get it to fit on the page.

    NOTE: This script has to be run from an admin account.

    Usage

    **This class exposes the following properties

    TraceOn - Boolean.
    Set Trace on = true if you require debug info sent to the response object
    ie. on screen at runtime. Logging information can also be retreived using the GetTrace Function

    ServerName - String
    Name of server to perform operation on

    **This class exposes the following methods:

    GetTrace - Returns Array of log items in : delimited format

    DenyIP(svc,ip,subnet) - Add an IP to the deny list for site (Returns Boolean)
    NOTE: This implicitly sets IPAllow to Allow by default with exclusions.
    svc - service tag
    ip - IP to deny eg 127.0.0.1
    Subnet - Subnet of ip to deny eg 255.255.255.255
    Example usage:
    BOOL = denyip 7,"111.111.111.111","255.255.255.255"

    AppDebug(svc,booldbg, message) - Set the send detailed error messages property for service (Returns Boolean)
    svc - service tag
    booldbg - Boolean set to true if debug is on
    message - Message to display if booldbg is false
    Example usage:
    BOOL = appdebug 5,false,errmess - App Debug off
    BOOL = appdebug 5,TRUE,"" - App Debug on

    AppCreate(svc,frname,isolation) - Creates an IIS Application for the service (Returns Boolean)
    svc - service tag
    frname - Friendly name (descriptive)
    isolation - Application Protection (low - IIS process=0 / medium - pooled=2 / high - isolated=1)
    Example usage:
    BOOL = appcreate 7,"www.whatever.com",0

    MakeSite(IPAddress , PortNum, HostName, RootDirectory) - Creates a new site (Returns service tag or -1 for fail)
    IPAddress - IP Address of new service eg 127.0.0.1
    PortNum - Port number of new service eg 80
    HostName - Host name of new service eg www.whatever.com
    RootDirectory - Physical path to root of new service eg c:\webs\sitepath
    Example usage:
    makesite("127.0.0.1", "80", "www.whatever.com", "c:\webs\sitepath")

    DeleteSite(svc) (Returns Boolean)
    BOOL = svc - service tag

    AddBinding(svc,IpAddress,PortNum,HostName) Add a binding to the specified service (Returns Boolean)
    svc - service tag
    IpAddress - IP Address of new binding eg 127.0.0.1
    PortNum - Port Number of new binding eg 80
    HostName - Host Name of new binding eg www.whatever.com
    Example usage:
    BOOL = AddBinding(160,"195.8.181.206","80","www.123atestsite.co.uk")

    BindingsList(svc) - Returns Array of bindings in : delimited format eg svc:IPort:host
    svc - filter list by a specific service tag or "" for all

    IIBackup(bkupName) - Backup the metabase to $winnt$\system32\inetsvr\metaback\bkupName (boolean)
    bkupName - Filename of backup

    Thats cool, love your tutorials. Even when I wasn't a member I would read them. Great tutorial, very informative and useful. Got 2 questions though.
    1. What version of IIS is this?
    2. Would any of your IIS tutorials work for PWS? I know the secure IIS one would, but how about others?

    NTSA glad the Holiday was good for you, as always your info and tuts are excellent and I view them with respect. I do have a question though and it has to do with teaching and knowledge. Yes it is true none of these things should be held away but what value is there in teaching any student not knowing how they will use what they learn? I am asking because I am a father of 3 sons and I pass to them things they need to know at the right age and they are mature enough to fully understand what the knowledge is about (that is called wisdom). After all I see a mad man given information and he in turn and a few of his buddies caused 9-11. I mean no disrespect to you admire your tuts but ask my question Peace

    linuxelite -

    1. IIS 4 and up
    2. Errrm...Probably? I don't use PWS, even for staging, so I'm guessing. If PWS supports multiple server bindings and ADSI then this should work. Check your docs for references to ADSI.

    Palemoon -

    what value is there in teaching any student not knowing how they will use what they learn?
    I just feel that it is important to publish as much of my work as I can get away with on sites such as this where they may be useful to someone. I am not a teacher by proffession and so I don't expend large quantities of effort in understanding the vauguaries of that process. I just figure that if I needed a bit of code someone else probably will too.

    And if my code saves that someone else the endless web-crawls and MSDN searches that I underwent to write the code in the first place then that someone else may use the time to write something else which they might also publish.

    On AO my 'good' articles reach about 500 views. Say just 10% of viewers find it useful and write something else in the time they saved. Thats another 50 published code exerpts. The worldwide knowledge base expands just a little further, and next time I am stuck I might just run across one of those 50 articles that is useful to me.

    If that doesn't answer the question then please rephrase.
