If you have not already, login to the Control Center at
and from the menu item IIS click on APPLICATION STARTING POINTS.
IIS "Application" is a collection of web pages that is executed within
a defined set of directories in your web site. When you create an
application in IIS, you designate the application starting-point
directory, which is also called the application root. You can have more
than one application per Web site. Every file and directory that is
beneath the starting-point directory in your Web site is considered
part of that application until another starting-point directory is
found. Thus, you use directory boundaries to define the scope of an
Once the application starting point is created, web
pages placed in that folder run in a different "process" than other
files on the web site. This is useful in ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion and
other programming languages, where it is possible to define multiple
applications on a site, each having different application parameters.
These parameters are usually defined in a file or files that reside on
the application root:
ASP: global.asa, etc.
ASP.NET: global.asax, etc.
Cold Fusion: application.cfm
To create an Application Starting Point, click on the "add" button. Choose a sub-folder and click "create".
To delete an Application, choose the application and click "delete".
an application is marked as *DISABLED*, it means that there is no
folder on the web site associated with the application. Usually this is
caused when an application has been created, and the site folder
deleted afterwards. Disabled applications should be deleted
creating an application, you can specify whether or not you want an
application to be set on the equivalent "SSL" folder. If this is
desired check the "Set application on equivalent SSL folder" checkbox.
When the applications are listed, the "SSL" column indicates whether or
not the SSL application is set (only available for web sites that
support shared SSL).
