I have a website hosted on an IIS 7.5/Server 2008 R2 Server. I want to use SSL and Basic Authentication on one file in the site. This used to be easy on sub-7 IIS versions, how can I do it on 7.5?
To enable, File Level Authentication in IIS 7 / 7.5
- Go the Web Site
- Click Content View
- Right click on the file e.g. iisstart.htm -> Switch to Features View
- Double click Authentication
- Now, select the Authentication Type you want to configure
Follow the same procedure for SSL Settings as well to enable SSL for just a single file.
