How Can A Virtual Directory Path Appear Case Sensitive
Nov 18, 2010
To start with then we have a LinkButton whose text is actually an image tag. The image it links to is a Png and resides in a folder in the web directory. This is IIS V6 and win Server 2003.
The path is [URL]
Admin is a virtual directory configured in IIS.
The above url doesn't work but if you change it to [URL] (lowers case 'a') then the image is served, change it back to 'A' and it takes you to login, you log in and it loops back to log in. change to 'a' and voila the image is served. Weirdly this problem doesn't always occur and I have hunted for a resolution for days to no avail.
My basic question is, can a virtual directory in IIS point to a physical path that's not on the local machine? For instance, right now I have a virtual path /NaturalGasReport/NYMEX which points to physical path C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX, but I want it to point to a physical path on a difference PC on the same network. Is this possible? (I know I can just try it out so I apologize for asking but I thought it would be best to get an explanation along with "yes" or "no"). If you want more detail, this is what I need to do. To make a long story short, because of a vendor product we are using that won't run on a 64-bit operating system, I have to run a program called Generate_NGReportData.vbs (it's a vbscript program) on a PC I will call 28. It uses a vendor product which produces jpg files which are graphs of the Natural Gas market. The machine where I wish it could run is called RTEST01 but this machine runs a 64-bit OS and the components won't work there. RTEST01 has the databases. So, I created a datasource on 28 which points to RTEST01's database. The vbs program will read the data, generate the reports, and write one row to a database table on RTEST01. RTEST01 has to run the complimentary program which sends these reports (via email). 28 is not an email server so it can't email the reports. So on RTEST01 I will run Send_NaturalGasReport.vbs. This program creates an email body of html. The html references [URL]NaturalGasReport/NYMEX/" & Day(nymex_update_dt) & ".jpg which is a virtual directory pointing to C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX. I need it to point to the folder and files on 28.So if my initial question has a simple yes answer then I am all set. If not, examine my architecture and propose an alternative solution.
I am trying to profile the number of "Anonymous Requests" for an ASP.NET web application using perfmon. When I select this key, I have to pick a process of the form _LM_W3SVC_#_ROOT. How do I map the IIS metabase path back to the web application?
I created a virtual directory in the Visual Web Developer, according to this post:
I want the user to upload / download documents in the mvc app to that virtual directory. When a document is uploaded, I'm specifying the path to the document to be stored for later retrieval like so:
~/VirtualDirectoryName/FileContent.docx. But when I try to open that as a link in th app,using ResolveUrl, it appends the port number after localhost like so,[URL], I get a document not found, since it really should be, [URL].
we are making a project to run in ASP.Net on Mono/*nix Our problem is that we develop on Windows, and we just build and test it every so often on Mono. So we have been having a lot of trouble recently with case sensitive filenames. Everything seems to work good in Windows and then we move to Mono and it's silently broken.(as in, it builds but won't run or parts of it don't work)
How would you recommend that I detect this while we are developing on Windows? Basically, how do we make the case-sensitive filenames look wrong in our code where the code works on Windows but not *nix?
I have my project set up with the virtual path "/MyVirtualPath", create the virtual directory in IIS 6 (W2003) and everything works fine. Then to work better with Google Analytics I change the virtual path "/myvirtualpath" and change all redicecciones and links to lowercase. also applies the class "lowercase route urls in aspnet mvc" and works perfectly.
The problem I had to modify the virtual directory in IIS, delete virtual path "/MyVirtualPath" and I created the new "/myvirtualpath", but in all cases I use tilde "~" or where I make a "RedirecToAction" (which should take "LowercaseRoute"), continues to maintain the virtual path "/MyVirtualPath". For example, if I see the HTML source code in the browser, see "/MyVirtualPath/Content/Site.css" instead of "/myvirtualpath/Content/Site.css. "
I have a validator on a textbox that validates against a list to ensure that the user doesn't input the same name. When testing it, if I type in the same name including the same case structure, it returns an error. If I change one letter to a different case, it doesn't return an error but rather my SQL server returns a duplicate error. How do I change the server-side validator so that it picks up duplicate names regardless of case?
Over here I have created a folder with name Data inside my solution, so the Server.Mappath("Data") as well the statemet for converting assigning the src property of the IFrame I1 is working properly. But I want to use the files from a folder which resides in a network folder like
I have a WCF service in a virtual directory that is called in the code behind of a page that is in the parent directory, when i debug the code i can see the wcf service is being called, however when the service calls Membership.GetUser() it alway returns null. The user has already logged in to the asp.net site. When i call the service via jquery it does pick up the correct user, but i need to be able to call it via the code behind as well. I am developing in .Net 3.5 how i can make the Wcf pick up the logged in user?
I made a web form on a development website of mine (we'll call it dev.somewhere.com) and tried to publish it out to the web (we'll call it [URL]) in a subfolder. I named it default.aspx like I was supposed to and it worked flawlessly on the dev site. When I published it out the web, I wound up getting the following error when trying to get to the subfolder: [URL] Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed. Confused and flustered, I tried to go to [URL], but I wound up with some error that won't tell me the problem. Instead it tells me to change the my web.config to read <customErrors mode="Off"/>.
As virutal directory points to physical path of the application, so if the IIS root directory is C:inetpubwwwroot and the application is stored at D:websites, than we need to create a virtual directory but if the application content is placed at C:inetpubwwwroot, then why still need to create virtual directory.
i'm trying to host an .net framework4.0 application in IIS7. i got an error while clicking on the manage module in modules .like ("Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive. ") .I changed my application poll to .net4.0.I am able to browse my application
I installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Trial and converted existing asp.net 2.0 web application and I am getting this error: znrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive. It's coming from this section in the web.config which was auto-generated by VS2010 when I converted the project:
I have a page that shows a list of the files in an upload directory. ie: My customer uploads a file through my web page and the file ends up in the proper directory. When I click on a file name, the url path is missing the directory name. It's as if my customer uploaded directly to my root. Interestingly, when I upload a file through the same web page, the path remains intact and I am able to click on the link and download the file. How can I get the proper path in my url name. Here is my code .
