How to Download the Hosting Bundle for .NET Core 6




If you want to host ASP.NET Core apps on IIS, you need to install the .NET Core Hosting Bundle. This is an installer that contains the .NET Core Runtime and the ASP.NET Core Module. The runtime enables you to run existing web/server applications, while the module allows IIS to forward requests to your app.

Current .NET Core Hosting Bundle installer (direct download)


Alternatively, you can go to the Download .NET Core page and select the desired version of .NET Core. Then, in the Run apps - Runtime column, find the row of the .NET Core runtime version you want and click on the Hosting Bundle link.


Once you have downloaded the installer, run it as an administrator and follow the instructions on the screen. The installer will install both the .NET Core Runtime and the ASP.NET Core Module on your server.


Options and Parameters




The hosting bundle installer has some optional parameters that you can use to customize your installation. You can specify these parameters when running the installer from an administrator command shell. For example:


dotnet-hosting-6.0.15-win.exe OPT_NO_ANCM=1


The following table lists some of these parameters and their meanings:



Parameter


Description


OPT_NO_ANCM=1


Skip installing the ASP.NET Core Module.


OPT_NO_RUNTIME=1


Skip installing the .NET Core Runtime.


OPT_NO_SHARED_CONFIG_CHECK=1


Skip the check for shared configuration in IIS. This can prevent the installer from failing if you have a shared configuration setup.


OPT_NO_X86=1


Skip installing the x86 version of the .NET Core Runtime and the ASP.NET Core Module.


OPT_NO_X64=1


Skip installing the x64 version of the .NET Core Runtime and the ASP.NET Core Module.


OPT_INSTALL_LTS_REDIST=1


Install the latest LTS version of the Visual C++ Redistributable, instead of the version bundled with the installer.


OPT_INSTALL_FTS_REDIST=1


Install the latest FTS version of the Visual C++ Redistributable, instead of the version bundled with the installer.


INSTALL_ASPNETCORE_SHARED_RUNTIME_60=0


Skip installing a specific version of the .NET Core Runtime. Replace 60 with the desired version number.


You can also use the /? or /help parameter to see a list of all available parameters and their descriptions.


Verifying the Installation




After you have installed the hosting bundle, you can verify that it is working correctly by checking the following things:



  • The module version. You can see the installed version of the ASP.NET Core Module by opening IIS Manager and looking at the Modules section. You should see a module named AspNetCoreModuleV2 with a version number that matches the hosting bundle version.



  • The installer logs. You can find the logs of the hosting bundle installer in the %temp% folder. The file name should start with Microsoft_.NET_Core_Hosting_Bundle_ and end with .log. You can open the log file and look for any errors or warnings that may indicate a problem with the installation.



  • The app functionality. You can test if your ASP.NET Core app is running properly by browsing to its URL and checking if it responds as expected. You can also check the app logs and event viewer for any errors or exceptions that may occur during or after the request.



Troubleshooting Common Issues




Sometimes, you may encounter some issues when installing or using the hosting bundle. Here are some common problems and their possible solutions:



  • The hosting bundle installer fails with an error message that says "The configuration section 'system.webServer/aspNetCore' cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration". This usually happens when you have a shared configuration setup in IIS and the installer cannot access or modify it. To fix this, you can either disable the shared configuration temporarily, or use the OPT_NO_SHARED_CONFIG_CHECK=1 parameter when running the installer.



  • The hosting bundle installer fails with an error message that says "A prerequisite check for .NET Core SDK failed". This usually happens when you have an older version of Visual Studio or Visual Studio Build Tools installed on your server, which does not support .NET Core 6. To fix this, you can either update your Visual Studio or Visual Studio Build Tools to the latest version, or use the OPT_NO_RUNTIME=1 parameter when running the installer.



  • The hosting bundle installer fails with an error message that says "A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable has been detected on this machine". This usually happens when you have a newer version of Visual C++ Redistributable installed on your server, which conflicts with the version bundled with the installer. To fix this, you can either uninstall your existing Visual C++ Redistributable, or use one of these parameters when running the installer: OPT_INSTALL_LTS_REDIST=1 or OPT_INSTALL_FTS_REDIST=1.



  • Your ASP.NET Core app fails to start or respond with an error message that says "HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error". This usually happens when you have a misconfiguration in your web.config file or your appsettings.json file, which prevents IIS from loading your app. To fix this, you can check your configuration files for any syntax errors, missing sections, or invalid values. You can also check the detailed error message and stack trace for more clues about what went wrong.



  • Your ASP.NET Core app fails to start or respond with an error message that says "HTTP Error 502.5 - Process Failure". This usually happens when your app fails to launch or crashes during the request. This can be caused by various reasons, such as missing dependencies, incompatible versions, corrupted files, or unhandled exceptions. To fix this, you can check the app logs and event viewer for any errors or warnings that may indicate the cause of the failure. You can also try to run your app from the command line using the dotnet command to see if it works or gives more details about the problem.

FAQs




Here are some frequently asked questions about the hosting bundle:


What is the difference between the .NET Core Runtime and the .NET Core SDK?




The .NET Core Runtime is the minimal set of libraries and components that you need to run existing web/server applications built with .NET Core. The .NET Core SDK is a larger set of libraries and tools that you need to develop new web/server applications with .NET Core. The hosting bundle only includes the runtime, not the SDK.


How do I update or uninstall the hosting bundle?




To update the hosting bundle, you can download and run the latest version of the installer. It will automatically replace the existing version of the runtime and the module. To uninstall the hosting bundle, you can use the Add or Remove Programs feature in Windows. You can also use the /uninstall parameter when running the installer from an administrator command shell.


How do I host ASP.NET Core apps on other platforms?




The hosting bundle is only for Windows servers with IIS. If you want to host ASP.NET Core apps on other platforms, such as Linux or macOS, you need to use a different web server, such as Apache, Nginx, or Kestrel. You can find more information about how to host ASP.NET Core apps on other platforms here.


How do I host multiple versions of ASP.NET Core apps on the same server?




The hosting bundle supports hosting multiple versions of ASP.NET Core apps on the same server. You can specify which version of the runtime your app requires by using a element in your web.config file. For example:


<runtime> <aspNetCore version="6.0.15" /> </runtime>


This will tell IIS to use version 6.0.15 of the runtime for your app. If you don't specify a version, IIS will use the latest installed version by default.


How do I enable HTTPS for my ASP.NET Core app?




To enable HTTPS for your ASP.NET Core app, you need to configure SSL certificates for your domain and your web server. You can use a self-signed certificate for testing purposes, or a trusted certificate from a certificate authority for production purposes. You can find more information about how to enable HTTPS for your ASP.NET Core app here.
