Configuring Web Site Properties
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
After the Apache Web sites are migrated, they run in a configuration that approximates their configuration on the Apache Web server. All of the Web sites run in the default application pool with the default security identity, NetworkService. In this configuration, the Web sites do not take advantage of the enhanced security and availability of IIS 6.0.
You can further configure the Web sites to provide the following:
Improved security. In many cases, you can improve the security of the Web sites by isolating and running each one with unique identities. For more information about improving the security of the Web sites, see Securing Web Sites and Applications.
Enhanced availability. In many cases, you can improve the availability of your Web sites. For more information about improving the availability of your Web sites, see Ensuring Application Availability.
