Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I changed the Physical Path to my website in IIS 7.5 and the icon changed to this:

enter image description here

It was completely vanilla before I changed that. I can't find any documentation on what that icon means and the tooltip only says "Default Web Site (Multiple Protocols)" which can't be true because http is my only enabled protocol in advanced settings.

Here are my bindings:

Anyone know what that blasted icon means, and how to address this issue? OR, is this even something I need to be concerned about? Thanks. :)

Have you also enabled FTP on the same site? If so, then this is a known bug and can safely be ignored.

Please observe the above screenshot. Clearly ftp is not enabled. Please stop answering my questions with so little effort; it's beginning to feel like you're trolling me. :( –  Chiramisu Nov 20 '12 at 18:13
    
@Chiramisu I'm really not sure why you feel like you're being trolled. Feel free to downvote any answer that you feel is not useful. –  MDMarra Nov 20 '12 at 18:49

The correct answer was staring me right in the face, though I didn't know it at the time. Apparently this little "question mark" notation on the icon is simply to alert the site admin to the fact that these bindings exist.

As it turns out, you can have multiple bindings of the same protocol (say to different host aliases) and the icon will be just a globe, but when you add additional protocols to the same site, THEN you get the question mark. :)
