Solved IIS for Linux (debian)

December 5, 2013 at 22:54:21
Specs: Debian, Intel i3 dual-code hyperthreading (quad core). 14Gb ddr3 ram
IIS for linux (debian) no bs about "oh you cant run it" in linux, because i refuse to use apache.

I tried WINE but i need .net framework, and other windows stuff.
I need it to be able to run natively though.

I would be fine with a alternative, but one that uses a GUI and acts just like IIS with permissions, errorcodes, ip/domains, start/stop servers, and change directorys to my users, eg: /home/bob/Desktop/website or ~/Desktop/website.

Webmin includes a GUI for Apache and many other services.

Install VirtualBox. Create a VM. Install Windows in the VM. Run IIS in the VM.

That's the only way you're going to do it. Apart from anything else, you are only licensed to run IIS on a Windows operating system.

Yes, i have done that before, is there any alternatives? Gui webserver with the specifications? Thank you for your time also.

VMs are not really accessable to my users, so if i could run a application that was native that would be great.

My users each have a account on the debian server.

"VMs are not really accessible to my users"

You are not setting them up correctly then. On any network with multiple servers you can access them all.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

What is your issue with apache?

I've used both and in my experience apache is a much better web server. For one thing, it runs on just as easily on Windows as it does on *nix systems and as you can see, IIS fails in that regard.

If a gui is that important to you, then you can add that to an apache server.

Apache GUI - home page

I'm guessing that most people who want something like IIS use IIS, so I'm not sure you are going to get many (any?) answers. But here's a list of available web servers and their features - take your pick.

Why you don't want to consider Apache is difficult to guess. It's a wonderful web server with superb support online.

I guess i will use Webmin with NaviServer or Apacheā€¦

And you may be wondering why not just use windows since 90% of what i do is using windows, it is because i now see linux is open and free, which seems to actually make up 60% loss power i had with windows (malware).

$ sudo -i
# rm -r /
# halt

NaviServer sounds very abandon but to me thats good, but does it have what IIS could do if it can work with Webmin?
