Hi Nocolai,

1. Frontend

I followed your webinar. I copied out bin folder, Global.asax, and web.conifg to another separate folder and pointing it in IIS.

But when I access the site it cuase an error below.

[NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]
   Dynamicweb.Security.Permissions.PermissionContext.EnsureContextIsOnTopOfStack(PermissionContext permissionContext) +81
   Dynamicweb.Security.Permissions.PermissionContext.get_AnonymousPermissionContext() +35

2. Backend

I just trying to separate backend into another domain as well, http://admin.example.com. but it doesn't work. Is there workaround for back-end separation?

 

Please refer to the attached screenshots.

You cannot do it like that.

Both instances in IIS needs to point to the same application folder - in the root and both have /bin and /admin. Only difference is that they will have different URLs - and different instances in IIS giving them 2 different application pools.

What are you trying to achieve or solve?

Hi Nicolai,

I believed your replied is for my question number 2. Thanks for your answer. Yes, what I want to acheive is to have differen application pools for backend and frontend.

 

Can you pls answer question number 1 as well? I followed your Webinar but face an error when I run it.

What webinar would that be?

I think the answer to both questions is to pointing both iis instances to the same directory in the root.
