Handler Mappings with IIS Manager in WebsitePanel

In this article I will give you a step-by-step guide on how to add a managed handler mapping in your WebsitePanel account.


What are handlers? Handlers are the ones that process requests made to sites and applications. Handlers map to resources on the Web server and generate responses for requests.

IIS determines which controller to use based on the ordered list of handler mappings configuration when a user requests any file from the server.

Getting Started

1. Connect to your site with IIS Manager 7. If you don’t know how to do that, please watch this tutorial video.

2. In the site main configuration page, go to menu “IIS -> Handler Mappings“:

b. Type box: enter the managed type for the handler. Example: System.Web.Handlers.
c. Name box, describe something about the handler mapping.
d. Optionally, Request Restrictions and configure restrictions if you want the handler to process requests only for specific resource types or verbs.
