    We have taken advantage of the extensibility of IIS Manager, and developed and beta launched two IIS Manager modules:

    Web.config Backup/Restore module: This tool will backup your web.config file and also can restore the web.config file.

    IIS Manager Feedback module: This tool allows our customers who use the IIS Manager to send in their feedback and suggestions on the IIS Manager.

    Heres how to get this to work:

    Log into your control panel (http://my.discountasp.net) and navigate to IIS Tools | IIS Manager tab. Allow the primary user (same as your control panel login user) to connect using IIS Manager.

    On the same tab (bottom), enable the web.config module and Feedback module.

    Now, close out the control panel and connect using IIS Manager. See: http://kb.discountasp.net/article.aspx?id=10575

    Once you click connect, you will be prompted with a dialogue box asking if you wish to install the modules.

    Check the Assembly and click OK.

    Click Run

    Once the assembly is installed, you should see the new DiscountASP.NET Tools section in the IIS Manager with the new modules.

    We are releasing these new IIS Manager extensions in beta right now so we can get your feedback on how to improve the tools.
