How do I Turn a Folder in an Application in IIS 6?

To create an application in IIS6 follow these steps:

Open IIS, Click on ‘Start > Run > inetmgr’

Expand the Server Name, Expand Web Sites, Expand the target Domain and Right Click on the Folder they wish to set as an Application, and choose ‘Properties‘.

Click the Create button next to “Application Name“, and Click OK.

Verify that “Session State” is enabled for the application: Navigate to the newly created Application (Virtual Directory), and Right Click it and select Properties.

Click the Configuration button.

Click the Options tab and make sure Enable session state is checked.

You have now set the folder “myapplication” as an Application Root (Virtual Directory). You can verify this by looking at the Icon next to the folder you just modified in IIS. It should look like a Yellow Gear.

If you need any assistance with this process, or encounter any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact our Technical Support Department.
