Disable overlapped recycle when binaries changed RRS feed

  • Question

  • User2123379952 posted

    I have an app hosted on IIS 8.5 which does not support multithreading. In Advanced Setting of the app pool I set Maximum Worker Processes to 1 and set Disable Overlapped Recycle to TrueBut I think this setting is not considered when Bin directory or web.config changed - new worker process is created while the old one is still alive, which is causing the app to crash.

    How to fully disable overlapped recycle so that I am sure that new worker process for the application is created only after the old process finished completely?

    Are you 100% sure a new process is created before the old one is terminated ? And that this is what causes the crash you see ?

    Actually, I found out that it is not a new process, but new Application Domain. And yes, I am 100% sure :)
