Is there a list of characters that need to be escaped for the Deploy to IIS step when setting the credentials when running the app pool as a custom user? Currently the account password is saved as a sensitive project variable.
When I use Octopus to deploy my site, the app pool won’t stay up because the password for the custom user is incorrect. However when I manually go set the username and password for the app pool identity in IIS with the same values I put in the variables. The site works.
There is an old thread out here on the same topic but it doesn’t seem there was ever a resolution. People just change their passwords to avoid possibly troublesome characters.
Current password I’m having issues with has the following symbols in it: & ^ %
