Yesterday was really intense! A complete day chasing a bug through the code and around servers. Felt so good to find it after about 7 hours of searching for me and a colleague.
When we ran around the servers and checked configurations i found a dialog box in IIS 6.0 that i never saw before. I realize that this probably is embarrassing to yield but i do it anyway.
There is a possibility to see and change the values of the web.config file from IIS in a much nicer GUI than the usual “Visual” Notepad. You can also change a lot of other configurations from this dialog.
- Right click your site or virtual directory and do Properties
- Choose the ASP.NET-tab
- Choose Edit-configuration
- Now the web.config for your application is opened and displayed (fancy that!), with possibility change the values.
This is a much nicer presentation of all the values in the config-file, easier to get an overview from. I like a lot, found a new friend i think
