As part of setting up IIS in my server deployment process, I need to install the IIS URL Rewrite module and make sure it succeeds before continuing on with later steps. I found a PowerShell script that can install it from a network share, but I was wondering if there is a more elegant solution?
Thanks for reaching out. We don’t have a built-in step to install that module, so doing it via Powershell would be the way to go.
Can you share your PowerShell script to IIS URL Rewrite module through octopus?
I need to this, thanks.
We decided to use Chocolatey instead of the Powershell script. The Powershell script I found is here if you need it: https://www.reddit.com/r/PowerShell/comments/54xste/install_url_rewrite_module_wpowershell/
It’s the last response, by topherrr.
The direction we went was to run a Chocolatey – Ensure Installed step and then a Chocolatey – Install Package step that installs the “urlrewrite” Chocolatey package. Might be overkill to use Chocolatey for one package, but it seems cleaner to us.
