application pools in iis overview

As defined in Internet Information Services (IIS) an application Pool is a collection of one or more URLs that are serviced by one or a set of worker processes. After installation of SharePoint, open IIS Manager. You will notice application pools in iis.

You must select an existing Application Pool or create a new pool whenever you create a service or web application in SharePoint Server.

application pools in iis allow multiple SharePoint websites to run on a single server without the processes or code in one site interacting with any other sites. This is primarily a security benefit, since any outside intrusion on one site is isolated. Also, problematic or poor code running on one site is isolated so that other sites on the server are unaffected. For these reasons, you should plan to use dedicated application pools to isolate authenticated content and separate applications that contain password information.

we can run powershell command to get all application pools.

This script will remove and re-add your content source’s start addresses.

SharePoint will more or less rebuild the index for these sources, when the next full crawl is started.

$sourceName = “Local SharePoint sites”

$SSA = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication

$source = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlContentSource -Identity $sourceName -SearchApplication $SSA

$startaddresses = $source.StartAddresses | ForEach-Object { $_.OriginalString }

$source.StartAddresses.Clear()

ForEach ($address in $startaddresses ){ $source.StartAddresses.Add($address) }

Site not appear in IIS Manager error opening in SharePoint Designer

I have created a site collection and then create two team sites on SharePoint server. Sites are working fine from central Admin but Site not appear in IIS Manager. Also when I try to edit a SharePoint site on SharePoint designer 2010 following error comes.

Unable to open website following causes:

  1. The web server may not have SharePoint installed.
  2. The web server may be temporarily out of service.
  3. If you are connecting through a proxy server the proxy settings may be incorrect.
  4. An error may be occurred in the web server

The IIS manager only showing the following sites SharePoint 80 and SharePoint central admin

When I try to create a site on SharePoint designer following error comes:

The web site must be created on a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint foundation server please choose another location.

I have installed SharePoint server 2010, SharePoint foundation server 2010 and SharePoint designer on my pc.

Solution :

* In IIS Manager, you're only going to see the Web apps, the site collections and sites are wont show up (if you have another web app that isn't showing up, that's a bigger issue. I'd delete it and try to recreate it.

* The SharePoint Designer issue, I've had before. For me, the issue was a firewall setting. But basically if you can get to the pages with the browser, make sure you have correct permissions set for your login, etc.
