I am using Windows NT since Vs3.1 in 1994 and back then I knew pretty much everything about the OS. Now there is just too much stuff to know for a single person. ServerFault to the rescue.

comment iis 7.5 Website permissions
Even when not using .NET, the application pool identity is still important, because it is what runs the site regardless of asp.net, php or static files.

comment Configure two separate websites having one as a child of another
@Zed_Blade - In general all IIS child objects (applications, virtual directories, normal folders) inherit settings from the web.config at the root level (site). Usually you still want a web.config in your child object to add new settings or override existing ones from the root level.

comment Use appcmd.exe to enable gzip compression on dynamic content on IIS 7.x
Before trying to automate the change, have you actually tried whether this works. As I see it, the httpCompression node only works on the server level. I don't think you can override this on the site level and even less likely in web.config. I set httpCompression-overrideModeDefault to allow and added a httpCompression node inside a location node in applicationHost.config. It doesn't make any difference. I can't override the server settings. You can add ' application/x-javascript' to the server level via appcmd.
