Application Tab, ASP.NET Configuration Settings Dialog Box

The Application tab of the ASP.NET Configuration Settings dialog box lets you manage three types of configuration settings:

  • Common compilation, page, and run-time settings.

  • Globalization settings.

  • Identity settings.

    NoteNote

    The MMC snap-in for ASP.NET works with IIS 6.0 or earlier. The IIS 7.0 administration tool includes the functionality of the ASP.NET MMC tool. For more information, see ASP.NET and IIS Configuration.

To display the ASP.NET Configuration Settings dialog box from the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager

  1. Open the Properties dialog box for the Web application.

  2. Click ASP.NET, click Edit Configuration, and then click Application.

The settings that you make in the Application tab apply to the Web application that you selected before displaying the Properties dialog box. The settings that you apply in the Application tab will appear in the system.web configuration section of the Web.config file for the Web application.

NoteNote

Configuration settings can be inherited. Settings can be defined in the Machine.config file, which acts as the base configuration for all Web sites and Web applications on the server. You can create new settings or override inherited settings by making configuration settings at the Web-application level.

For information about ASP.NET Configuration Settings, see ASP.NET Configuration Overview

  • The Application tab lets you complete the following tasks:

  • Set the default language for the ASP.NET pages in the Web application.

  • Set the default theme and master page for the Web application.

  • Enable debugging for the Web application.

  • Specify the maximum number of seconds a request can run before it is automatically shut down by ASP.NET.

  • Set content encoding character sets for requests, responses, and culture settings, which determine the results of culture-dependent functions, such as the date, number, and currency formatting.

  • Set the windows identity that will be impersonated and under which the ASP.NET pages run.

The Application tab has three categories, as follows:

  • Common compilation, Page and Runtime Settings

  • Globalization Settings

  • Identify Settings
