Hi,

I installed IIS 5.1 (win XP Pro) to test ASP pages, but it's not working. when I'm trying to open asp page (http://localhost/pagename.asp ) browser looks like it;s downlowding something (waiting for localhost) and at the same moment computer is almost paralized by a process named dllhost.exe and it's using whole swap file and it also needs more so it's makeing it bigger and bigger.last time I had nearly 1000MB declareted and 180Mb use. after I entered (http://localhost/pagename.asp) I had 1600MB and used 1600MB and it was still riseing. what can I do with this?


Thanks

dllhost.exe is the DCOM dll host process that controls processes in the Internet Information Services (IIS) and is used by many programs and is an Essential Windows process. You can have more than one instance of it running. It is located in c:\windows\System32 folder If the dllhost.exe that is running on your computer is not located in that folder then it may potentially be a virus.

What happens when you type http://localhost ?
That should default to http://localhost/localstart.asp

If it doesn't, try http://localhost/localstart.asp

If that works, then you may have a problem with the ASP files you created and are trying to run.

//I guess my thought is that you have an infinite loop in your asp script which would eat up your processor and memory and never display the page.

it should be http://localhost/localstart.asp not http://localhost/localstart
(unless you deleted the original files that came with IIS)

Inetpub should be in the root of the C: directory. If you installed it somewhere else, that could be causing you problems. In Inetpub you should have a wwwroot folder. That is the default website folder when IIS is installed. localhost.asp is the default webpage for IIS and provides the instructions for set up.

Here are Microsofts instructions for installation:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/docu ... isin2.mspx

Review those to make sure you have it installed properly.

You can uninstall it and reinstall it from Control Panel | Add /Remove Software | Windows Components.

You'll need your XP CD. Follow the install instructions in the link above and you should be fine. I've never had it not install perfectly the first time following those instructions.

You should get every Update for Windows, a good firewall, and anti virus, IIS is very well.. easy to break, and unrealiable microsoft product that can easily spread worms.

Although I echo your advice for protection, I've been using IIS for the last 3 years without any problems whatsoever on 4 different websites. And for ASP programming it is the only way to go.
