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.
