    Well I found out which PID was associated with the appPool I wanted using the command cscript.exe iisapp.vbs

    now I just have to wait for noon before I can stop it, otherwise I will have 60 people in my office wondering why they can't enter orders suddenly >_>

    Hmm... I'd be tempted to do it anyway! :-D

    Saying that, it's mainly because someone has been undoing my work to improve a site's speed.

    So I pushed changes to the website last night, and I had to restart IIS like normal, because web deploy for some reason won't reflect changes. Well for the first time since I've been here, even though I restarted IIS 3 times, none of my changes are reflecting on the website. I want to clear the Temp ASP.Net folder, but when I try it says access is denied because w3wp.exe is running. I go to the task manager to stop that process, and I see that there are 3 instances of w3wp.exe running. Now I don't know how that process works, or how it is started. There are multiple websites on this server, and I don't want to take them all down by closing out of the wrong process....
    Yell at it.

    That site is a plain WordPress install site. And has issues.

    Don't we all...

    I say it's built with PHP, HTML and CSS.
  4. In Topic: How to correctly position/place content?

    Posted 13 Feb 2015

    Okay, basics of web... stuff.

    Origin is the top left corner of the screen. That is 0, absolute. Everything comes from there.

    Then it goes right, all the way across, then down 1px, then all the way across again, down, across, down, across... get it? Like read a (western) book.

    CSS: Position is a very tricky beast to master. It can be glitchy, not listen to your logic (you need to use its logic), and then just refuse to work.

    What you are doing is perfectly reasonable, and often the norm. Hey, I've been paid to make website that use the very same structure (although dynamic).

    Most websites are now built with a grid system in mind, because it makes responsiveness so much easier.

    Did a bit of programming earlier (created a program to strip out content from an XLS file and make it useful for a WordPress site) - that was fun, and cut down the workload to about 10%.

    Developing the Leader Within You said:

    "It's not how hard you work, but how smart you work."

    Seriously - about seventy rows, three columns, to copy and paste into accordions, shortcodes, styling and hyperlinking.
    Ran the code, copied the source, pasted in WordPress - job done!

    I should also be doing some work on a SMS project, but I have to wait for a collegue, who may not be in this afternoon, so I have nothing to do except think of a way to unlock my Lumia 920 for sim-free to take to South Africa with me.
