QuestionIIS .NET Automated Overnight Process? PinmemberMember 1096603523-Jul-14 8:04 
Hi Folks
 
I've been out of the IT game for some time and have just returned to help a non-technical friend with a .NET 4.0 website application, developed in Visual Studio 2010 and now in 2013.
 
The previous developer implemented a timer in Global.asax to run some logic once every 24 hours but this is clearly not the best way as processes stop when the website isn't used.
 
What I need to achieve is to create something that will run without interruption on the server. Overnight from 1am it will read the database using LINQ, generate statistics, create new database records and send emails. Then once its finished it just needs to sit there until the same time tomorrow when it repeats the process.
 
I need to be able to enable/disable the process. I should say its hosted on a shared server where I don't have full control of IIS.
 
I've read so much about Web Services, WCF, REST etc but cannot pinpoint the best approach given the scenario. All feedback appreciated!
 
Thanks
 
Paul ...
