    How to schedule to stop and start Web Application


    Hello, everybody. I would like to know how to schedule a Web application
    to stop at certain time and then to restart it 30 minutes later. Is there
    a way to do this from Internet Service Manager or thru ASP. Thanks in advance
    for any help with this matter.

    Michael.

    Michael - wouldn't you be better off writing a small NT Service to do this?

    If you disable the application completely, a request for an application page
    would return an error to the user. Just a suggestion: it might be better if
    you could return an out-of-service message and tell the users when the
    application will restart.

    To do that, simply check the time at the start of each page. For example,
    suppose you wanted to disable the app between 1:00 and 1:30 PM. If the
    current time is between those start and end times, write a message to the
    user that the application is disabled, will start again in X minutes, and
    issue a Session.Abandon. You can do this easily by putting the code in an
    INCLUDE file that you include with each page.

    It would be highly irritating to people who might be using the application
    if you simply disable it without warning. Therefore, you could add code to
    begin warning users some time before you actually disable the application,
    e.g. "This application will be out of service in 15 minutes. Please save
    your work and log off" or something to that effect.
