Using FogBugz On Demand? We've recently rolled out a new sidebar as part of taking FogBugz forward. Please see this article for details on what's new, what's changed, and where you can find all your favorite things.


Our recommended setup is Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2. FogBugz should work on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016, but we haven’t yet fully QA’d it and do not support it officially. Generally, installing FogBugz on Windows Server 2012 or 2016 is a smooth experience. Most of the issues we’ve come across are with configuring IIS properly.

IIS Configuration Details

Here are detailed steps based on the above link for installing IIS and the prerequisites:

  • Install IIS.
  • In IIS, install the following roles:
    • Common HTTP Features (all)
    • Application Development (all except CGI)
    • Health and Diagnostics (just HTTP Logging, Logging Tools, Request Monitor, or all if you want)
    • Security (Request Filtering)
    • Performance (Static Content Compression)
    • Management Tools (IIS Management Console, IIS 6 Management Compatibility)
  • In Server Manager -> Features:
    • Role Administration Tools > Web Server (IIS) Tools
    • Install .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features > .NET Framework 3.5.1
    • Install Application Development Features (based on this MSDN article)

You can also try running the installer with these options. As a reference, here is what the FogBugz installer does.
