Local IIS Instance

By Lex Li

This page shows you how to use Jexus Manager to manage local IIS instance.

In this article:

Background

There are several issues with IIS Manager that you might not be able to use it to troubleshoot IIS configuration issues,

  • IIS Manager strictly requires administrator permissions.
  • Some file errors will trigger an error dialog (or 500.19 error page) that tells nothing useful.

Jexus Manager Benefits

Jexus Manager can run as a normal user to navigate the settings, and its exception dialog provides the same or even better error message when an error is detected.

Note

Jexus Manager current only provides read-only access to local IIS instance. No change in Jexus Manager is saved to IIS configuration file. Read-write access will be added in a future build.
