Storing documents in IIS

    Question

  • Not sure if this is the proper location for this question.
    Can someone tell me if it's a good practice and common for companies to store PDF or Office documents in IIS to be made available on a website? 

    It seems like a bad practice as these types of documents are typically changed frequently.  Our management is asking me to store Accounting and other business documents in IIS instead of creating a file share on another server.  I feel cluttering IIS with non code related documents is a bad practice.

    Can someone provide some insight to the proper means to expose business documents on a website?

    Thanks in advance,
    Clem

  • Hi Clem,

    Actually this forum is to discuss the VS IDE usage.

    >>Can someone provide some insight to the proper means to expose business documents on a website?

    For this issue, I could provide you the correct path.

    (1)You said that you use the IIS, maybe you could think about use the FTP:

    Of course, you could post this issue to the IIS forum like the above thread.(2)Or you could think about using other way like the SharePoint or the VS online.

    Best Regards,

    Jack
