An IIS Application Pool (AppPool) is a common memory space, shared CPU threads, and common security context that can be run on an IIS server. The web server administrator or developer assigns web sites or web applications to run within an application pool. Having multiple application pools allow different web sites or web applications to run independently and prevents them from interfering with one another. This also permits applications that need limited security permissions from having more privileges than they need.
Our installers create an application pool for each of our applications. If you manually install one of our applications or if you create additional web site or web application instances, we recommend you use dedicated application pools. Our applications require the following properties in an Application Pool.
You can view an app pool's properties by opening IIS Manager, navigating to the Application Pools container, right click on the app pool you want to view, and choose Advanced Settings
In most cases, you will not need to create an additional application pool. To create an application pool called IthicosAppPool on an IIS server, follow these steps:
This application pool can be used for any Ithicos Solutions applications. Our installer does create a seperate app pool during installation but it is not necessary.< br />
The application pool you create can be used for all Ithicos Solutions products. It is easy to change a Web application to another application pool. Here is an example for the Directory Manager application.
