The application pool of IIS is restarting whenever I hit a bad path/directory of my application.
http://localhost/Test/Web/ exists and works fine. But when I try to hit a directory that does not exist e.g. http://localhost/Test/NonExistingDirectory , it displays a 404 page and application pool shuts down.
Event viewer shows the following details:
Event code: 1002 Event message: Application is shutting down. Reason: Configuration changed. Event time: 8/3/2016 6:54:29 PM Event time (UTC): 8/3/2016 1:24:29 PM Event ID: bbeb7e9b4d8f4524b34e7172f67e4e21 Event sequence: 5 Event occurrence: 1 Event detail code: 50004
Is this(application pool shutting down) an expected behavior or something weird is happening?
