We have had a customer send us some information about setting up a server to allow VP-ASP to run in a Web Garden setup.

Please find the article below.

Has anyone else had any experience with this type of setup or have any comments on the article?


To enable VP-ASP to work in a Web Garden type setup, you will need to talk to your host about setting up a structure to ensure your customers don't lose sessions while shopping.

If your web host has VP-ASP set up to run in a Web Garden, VP-ASP must be assigned to its own application pool.

This means that your host will need to configure a subfolder outside the Web Garden and then point your configuration to that application pool/folder, so your your path would look something like -
/web-content/vpasp/(all your shop files here)

They must then move the VP-ASP store to that folder.

For example, if you use one folder to run your main informational web and run a sub-website for the VP-ASP store, you can leave your informational web where it is in the Web Garden.

Your web host will need to disable recycling on the VP-ASP folder and set the recycler process to only recycle your site once at a set time during the day.

You will then need to use an entry page at the top of your site to redirect the link to the subfolder.


Thank you,

VP-ASP Support
