HOW TO: Create and Configure Active Server Pages (ASP) Web Applications in the Windows Server 2003

Summary

This article describes how to create and configure Web applications in Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0.

An IIS application is any file that is executed in a defined set of directories in your Web site. When you create an application, you designate the starting-point directory (also known as the application root) in your Web site. Each file or folder in the starting-point directory is considered part of that application until another starting-point directory is created. You use directory boundaries to define the scope of a Web application.

In IIS 6.0, an application starting point is indicated by a package icon if it is created for a virtual directory or physical directory. If it is created for a Web site, the starting point is indicated by a globe in a hand icon.

How to Create an ASP Web Application

  1. Start IIS Manager or open the IIS snap-in.
  2. Expand ServerName, where ServerName is the name of the server, and then expand Web Sites.
  3. Right-click the directory that you want to use as the application starting point, and then click Properties.

    NOTE: You can use the home directory of a Web site as the application starting point.
  4. In the DirectoryNameProperties dialog box (where DirectoryNameis the name of the directory that you selected), do one of the following:
    • If you selected a Web site, click the Home Directory tab.

      -or-
    • If you selected a virtual directory, click the Virtual Directory tab.

      -or-
    • If you selected a physical directory, click the Directory tab.
  5. Under Application Settings, click Create.

    NOTE: If the Create button is not present, a default application has already been specified. In this case, click Remove to remove the default application, and then click Create.
  6. In the Application name box, type the name of the application that you want. Note that the application starting point is displayed next to Starting point.
  7. In the Execute Permissions list, click the level of permissions that you want to give this application. For example, for ASP scripts or Internet Database Connector (IDC) scripts, click Scripts only.

    NOTE: The Scripts only option is more secure than the
    Scripts and Executables option.
  8. In the Application Pool box, click the option that you want, and then click Apply.
  9. Click the Documents tab.
  10. If your application uses a default document that is not displayed in the document list, click Add.
  11. Type the name of the document in the Default Document Name box, and then click OK.
  12. Select the newly added document, and then click
    Move up until the new document is at the top of the document list.

How to Configure an ASP Web Application

Certain properties can be set for each ASP application that you have created. To configure an ASP application, follow these steps:
  1. Start IIS Manager or open the IIS snap-in.
  2. Expand ServerName, where ServerName is the name of the server, and then expand Web Sites.
  3. Right-click the Web site or the starting-point directory of the application that you want, and then click Properties.
  4. Depending on the starting-point directory that you selected, click the Home Directory, Virtual Directory, or Directory tab.
  5. Under Application Settings, click Configuration, and then click the Options tab.
  6. Click to select the Enable session statecheck box if you want ASP to create a session for each user who accesses an ASP application.
  7. Click to select the Enable buffering check box if you want ASP to collect all output that is generated by the ASP page before the output is sent to the requesting Web browser.
  8. Click to select the Enable parent pathscheck box if you want ASP to use relative paths to the parent directory of the current directory (paths using the .. syntax).

    NOTE: If you select this option, do not grant Execute permissions in the parent directories. This is to prevent a script in a subdirectory from running an unauthorized program in a parent directory.
  9. In the Default ASP language box, type the language that you want to use.

    This box specifies the language that is used to process commands in the ASP delimiters (<% and %>). Note that VBScript is the default ASP language.

    NOTE: You can override the default language in your ASP page by using the <%@LANGUAGE%> directive.
  10. In the ASP Script timeout box, type the length of time that want the ASP to allow a script to run.

    NOTE: You can set the time-out period to a value ranging from 1 to 2147483647.
  11. Click OK two times to save your changes and return to the Internet Information Services window.
  12. Quit IIS Manager or close the IIS snap-in.

Example of How to Create an ASP Web Applicationin a New Web Site

The following example illustrates how to create an ASP application in a new Web site in IIS.

NOTE: This example assumes the default installation of Windows Server 2003 is on drive C.

Step 1: Create a Content Directory

  1. Start Windows Explorer, and then navigate to the following location:
    C:\Inetpub
  2. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Folder.
  3. In the New Folder box, type Content, and then press ENTER.
  4. Quit Windows Explorer.

Step 2: Create an ASP Web Application

  1. Start Notepad.
  2. In the Notepad window, type the following code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD><TITLE>ASP Web Application</TITLE></HEAD>
    <BODY BGCOLOR=white>
    <H1>ASP Web Application</H1>
    <HR>
    Type your name
    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION=Output.asp>
    <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME="username">
    <INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT>
    </FORM>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>
  3. On the File menu, click Save As.
  4. In the Save As dialog box, navigate to Content in the Save in box, click All Files in the Save as type box, type
    Input.htm in the File name box, and then click Save.
  5. On the Edit menu, click Select All, and then click Delete on the Edit menu.
  6. In the Notepad window, type the following code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD><TITLE>ASP Web Application</TITLE></HEAD>

    <%
    NAME=REQUEST.FORM("username")
    RESPONSE.WRITE(NAME)
    %>
    </P>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>
  7. On the File menu, click Save As.
  8. In the Save As dialog box, click Content in the Save in list, click All Files in the Save as type list, type
    Output.asp in the File name list, and then click Save.

    The Content folder contains the Input.htm file and the Output.asp file.
  9. Quit Notepad.

    Read
    Run scripts (such as ASP)
