We just migrated our old Windows 2003 server to Windows 2008 64-bit, so we are trying to get used to the newer IIS.
We have a lot of changes to make concerning things like MIME types, etc and figured that these changes would go a lot quicker if we were to just edit a config file rather than using the IIS manager.
However, we have found two paths for config files:
Since we are on 64-bit, I would assume we need to be editing the one under the
SysWOW64 folder. However, we have been editing settings in IIS all night, yet both files are showing a modification date as of only a few minutes ago...
So, am wondering which one we need to be messing with... And, when we do, does IIS automatically pick up on the changes when we save or do we need to do something in the manager to refresh the settings?
Might be worth mentioning: we use this server to run Coldfusion 9, and aside from a few sites with static HTML that we host, everything runs Coldfusion.
Looked into this, and it appears that I was reading the timestamps on the files wrong. It looks like when I make changes in IIS, the System32 file is altered, and the SysWOW64 is not touched. However, this is weird because the SysWOW64 file was modified last night at 10:44PM, so I can assume this was being used (we started work way before then)? At around 10:45PM last night, I did make a command line call to "iisreset", could that have messed something up?
Something else to note: the app pool our sites are in is set to ASP.NET 2.0, in case that has some sort of affect (maybe need to switch these to 4.0).
