Event ID 18 — HTTP Service Namespace Management

Updated: April 17, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

To receive HTTP requests, a server application must have its URL registered with the HTTP Service. If the server application is running without administrative credentials, the server application must reserve a URL namespace before it can register. Reserving a URL namespace creates an access control list (ACL) for that namespace. Additionally, a server application (hosted by the HTTP Service) might conflict with another application (not hosted by the HTTP Service) if both use the same IP addresses and port.
