Can you set a custom Error page if IIS is stopped or recycling for an extended period of time?

  • What do you mean if IIS is stopped?

If IIS is stopped, then it won't serve any pages, custom or built-in.

  • That's what I would figure too. When I stop the site in the console, the SSL port 443 stops responding completely -- but port 80 still responds with a 404 Not Found error for any request. Surprise!
