IIS Hosted Web application issue RRS feed

  • User1720137429 posted

    Hi,

    I'm facing issues with my HTML5 portal application. This is a Portal that holds multiple application on it and one of the applications is developed with Adobe Flex client and classic net web service. When 5-6 sessions are active, this application doesn’t respond and we get a blank screen. On IIS reset it will start functioning normally. Portal is running within a .net V4 integrated pipeline application pool. There is no error log on application side or in EventVwr. Can anyone provide any input?

    Thanks in Advance,

    Hi Anulall,

    You can add a few more settings to your web.config file that allow you to show a static page while the App is starting up. This can be useful if startup is really slow, so rather than displaying blank screen while the user is fiddling their thumbs you can display a static HTML page instead:

      <system.webServer>
        <applicationInitialization remapManagedRequestsTo="Startup.htm"  
                                   skipManagedModules="true">
          <add initializationPage="ping.ashx" />
        </applicationInitialization>
      </system.webServer>

    Hello,

    If you use some kind of caching it could cache only http header request, and you will see a blank screen. Try disable caching and see the result, if this is a problem disable header caching.
