Servers / Network

I think of the word DevOps, and I think of it almost like Cloud, a term that is used to describe a concept but everyone probably has a different implementation or way they go about things when it comes to DevOps. Gone are the days when engineers were going to an RDP session, and building out servers, looking at their notes to configure applications, and creating so many holes for human error.

I'm very glad to have moved my site over to 3Essientials for DotNetNuke hosting.   If you remember in a previous blog post, I was using MyHosting.com for hosting my site in a VPS.

But, one apparent difficultly is matching up the w3wp.exe processes displayed in Task Manager to the Application Pools in IIS. Review of IIS5 In IIS5.0 (Windows 2000 Server), each site that is set to Out Of Process will spin up a new instance of dllhost.exe. Windows Task Manager lists them. Now, the trick is to find out which dllhost.exe matches which site. My ...
