Before going on holidays last week I decided to put a Longhorn Beta 3 box live on the Internet. It doesn't run a lot of things just yet (except for trials of the all-new FTP server), but today I decided to take the plunge and try FastCGI (see Using FastCGI to host PHP applications on IIS7).
An application I wanted to test-drive for a long time is WebSVN. The UI looks like this:
It is PHP-based, needs Cygwin-based tools, and is quite useful for browsing Subversion repositories. After downloading the latest code from the WebSVN repository, I was able to get up and running in about half an hour (that includes failing with WebSVN RC4, installing Cygwin, etc). You can check it out at http://iis7.chrison.net/websvn/index.php
I'll add more applications to this box over the coming days and weeks, to see what works and what doesn't for the mix of technologies I am using.
Oh, and it seems that I am the first European site registered at IIS7 On Tour:
