SPDev – RecycleAppPool

This page covers the RecycleAppPool operation in the [[Home|SPDev]] command line utility.
Operation: RecycleAppPool
Recycle the IIS Application Pool Using the URL Instead of the App Pool Name.
The RecycleAppPool operation recycles the IIS application pool using a URL instead of having to know the name of the IIS application pool.
 Recycle the IIS application pool by specifying the web application URL – not the application pool name!
 Recycling the IIS application pool is much faster than the IISReset command to force new assemblies to load!
This is useful when coding with a team of developers who all may have a different name for the application pool on their local development machine.  With the SPDev command, they can now just use the following command line.

SPDev.exe –o RecycleAppPool –url http://localhost
