Enabling service auto-start

Hi there,

I’m trying to use Hangfire on an ASP.NET MVC Application. We are currently trying to deploy the app and configure the server so that it auto-starts the app and preloads Hangfire. I have followed the documentation step by step and though the Hangfire process auto-starts on Server Start, it doesn’t auto-start when I recycle the application pool of the app.

I am using IIS 8.0 running on a Windows Server 2012.

Best regards,


The only way that worked for me is editing the applicationHost.config thru the IIS 8.0 Manager > Configuration Manager. I found a stetp-by-step guide that was little bit clearer than the Documentation one. http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/795265/IIS-Asp-net-warm-up-Auto-Start-Application
