However, we frequently publish Orchard-related news on our other site Orchard Dojo, so be sure to check that out instead.

  • Setting up and Orchard site in IIS Express 7.5

    Tags: Orchard, IIS, maintenance, brotip

    I am going to show you a step by step how-to about the configuration of IIS (Internet Information Services) Express (version 7.5) to host an Orchard application, based on our first experiences with site maintenance. On the following episodes of this 3-part series we will also look at Visual Studio "one-click" (well, actually 3) Web Deploy, IIS URL Rewrite and Orchard.Email + Windows SMTP Server. But let us start with the basics, fire up IIS! We'll use IIS Manager.

  • MVC Brotip: App_Offline

    Tags: Orchard, Orchard brotips, brotip, ASP, .NET, MVC, Windows, console

    One of the benefits of using ASP.NET MVC is that during maintenance you are able to put your site to an offline state while making changes that could be interrupted or corrupted by users. In case of Orchard these are typically database I/O jobs. To prevent this, all you need to do is place a file named "App_Offline.htm" to the root directory (Orchard.Web) of your site and display any message to the users using HTML. While this file is present, user requests will not reach the Orchard site, instead handled by the server itself. To restore your site to online state, just rename "App_Offline.htm" to anything else.

Particularly starting debugging (and spinning up an Orchard instance) is slow and when opening a page that wasn't yet hit by the JIT compiler is also slow. Meanwhile your computer uses a fraction of its resources.
