Automating the creation of a new blog

Jan 12, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Hey guys,

I'm tasked with trying to create an internal blog platform, and have som restrictions regarding the technical platform on which the blog is based.

So I thought of, since it's simple filecopying when creating a new blog.

Have any of you automated the IIS website creation process through Powershell ? If so, can you share which steps are needed to create a website which will basically work as soon as I've copied the file/folder structure to the website folder ?

It's basically (a) copying BE into a new folder, (b) setting Write/Modify permissions on the App_Data folder, and (c) setting up the folder as a website or application within IIS.

Hey Ben,

yeah I know that. Was just interested if anyone had automated the deployment of Blogengine sites. Because if they had, I'd be interested in which tech they used for it.

Seems there are none though, so I'll just create a powershell script to do it. No worries :)

Thanks for the answer though :)
