Hi Rick,

When manually updating the web.config file on a live server, do you recommend unloading all server instances before uploading the web.config file to the server or does it matter?

I have read that IIS will detect that web.config has changed and automatically restart the application but is there a problem with allowing that to happen?

What do you recommend?

Thanks,
Carl

No you don't have to unload anything. Any .NET based changes (in classic ASP.NET which is what Web Connection runs) automatically restarts the Application Pool. Anytime you touch web.config the application (not the Web Server) reloads.

This affects web.config and the webconnectionmodule.dll.
