IIS 7.0 - Every Site Suddenly Redirecting Root Request To Forms Authentication?

Apr 30, 2010

Suddenly, IIS 7.0 is redirecting every request for the root of any domain hosted on the box to ~/Account/Logon, which is our Forms Authentication redirect. Additionally, some JavaScript and image requests are being similarly redirected, but not other aspx pages.

EDIT: It turns out that something has gone wrong with the disk permissions. Can anyone point me to the way things are supposed to be in Windows Server 2008 for a standard ASP.Net installation? The disk permissions are out of whack now.

Add Per Request - Token Based Authentication To Mvc Site

Apr 4, 2011

I have an existing asp.net mvc website that uses basic forms authentication. The site has a login page that posts back to a login action, which logs the user in via FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(). I am looking to add an api to the site, as an mvc2 area, where users would be authenticated based on a token passed as an http header. This area will consist of only json actions, so redirecting the user to a login page doesn't make sense. Instead, I want the users to just pass a token along with each request. That token is mapped to each user account and the user would be authenticated automatically.

I'm struggling with where to put this logic. At this point, the best choice seems to be adding the header lookup logic and authentication to the Global.asax in the Application_AuthenticateRequest method. I want to avoid needing to redirect the user after calling FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(), though. I want the login action to be transparent to them. Am I approaching this the wrong way? As a side note: Requiring a username/password for api requests is not possible, as the site has a mix of users. Some joined using OpenID while the rest joined with a username/password.

Redirecting Default.aspx To Root Virtual Directory?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a simple ASP.NET 3.5 application running under IIS7 under a virtual directory. So the URL of my app is like http://site.com/app. I want to 301-redirect the request to site.com/app/default.aspx to site.com/app for better SEO. I have to do this redirect through code only, not by any IIS settings. I am unable to do so via code mentioned in this article:


The code:

if (request.RawUrl.Equals("/default.aspx"))
newUrl = string.Format("{0}://{1}{2}",
request.RawUrl.Remove(request.RawUrl.LastIndexOf("/default.aspx", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase)));
context.Response.Status = "301 moved permanently";
context.Response.AddHeader("Location", newUrl);

seems to go into an infinite loop when the application is under a virtual directory. the request.RawUrl property always returns "/default.aspx" even after a 301 redirect causing the infinite loop.

Security :: Pass Credential From On Request To Another Request (one Site To Another Site)?

Jul 27, 2010

WebApp1: on IIS and configured with Windows authentication. Get User account from AD.

WebAPP2: a java web app on another windows box in same domain with authentication from AD

On web app1, I have a http handler like

public class MyHandler : IHttpHandler
public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
string url = "http://WebApp2/Test";
HttpWebRequest myReq = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
CredentialCache myCache = new CredentialCache();
NetworkCredential netCredential = new NetworkCredential("myname", "mypassword", "");
myCache.Add(new Uri(url), "Basic", netCredential);
myReq.Credentials = myCache;

in above way, I can set authentication in code and pass it WebApp2.

But I don't want to put name and password in code. User info already available on WebApp1: in context.User I can find out the user info who already logined into WebApp1, so I want to pass this credential to WebApp2. I have tried to do following:

myReq.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

but I am failed becuast there is no data in CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials.

Web Forms :: Redirecting From An Existing Site?

Sep 6, 2010

I've been asked to create an expansion in ASP.NET (at say www.newsite.com) to a current website (at, say www.oldsite.com) that uses WordPress. The existing site will have a new link added to it, when clicked this will link to my new content. So far, so simple, however it has been requested that the address displayed be the same as the existing site- i.e. when the user clicks on a link to the new site it goes to my new site but the address shown is still www.oldsite.com/newcontent rather than www.newsite.com

I probably haven't explained this very well, but is it possible to do this without modification of the original site as this is maintained by a different company.

Forms Authentication - Redirecting To Page Other Than Default Redirect Url

Jun 29, 2010

In asp.net we specify the redirect url when using forms authentications like this:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="myApp" loginUrl="Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="default.aspx" path="/" requireSSL="false"/>

this means that when a user log in, will be redirected to "default.aspx" using this method

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(IDTextBox.Text, RememberCheckBox.Checked);

Now is it possible to make the user choose which page to be redirected to prior to login? for example the user chooses from a list the page to login to prior to login then when authenticated be redirected to this page instead of the default.aspx page. is that possible and if so how can this be done?

Security :: Forms Authentication Not Redirecting To Login Page?

Jul 25, 2010

I am using VWD 2010 on a windows 7 64 bit install. Using forms authentication I am not being redirected to the login page when not authenticated yet. Even if I start a new web site from template, clear out all cookies, I still go directly to default.aspx. The LoginView control displays the anonymous template verifing I am not authenticated.

configuration why redirection doesn't occur? Remember I am trying this with New Web site template with no mods so I don't think config issue is within application code.

Web Site Deployment / Root Of The Site?

Jan 3, 2010

Is not a lot of fun of yielding much success at the moment.

When I copy my web site on the local machine some of the CSS classes in my themes are not applied. Although not major, I am concerned at what may be causing this.

My real problem is regard the root of the site. On my personal machin, I have set the root of my site using the tilde syntax. However, the root of the web site on my host's ftp site is wwwroot.

Does this mean that I need to change a setting somewhere for the page to be recognised?

Redirecting Traffic To The New Site?

Apr 4, 2011

We have a web site up and are moving to a new site, with a more modern design and some jQuery/ajax features for better usability. The old site is on IIS6 and the new one is on IIS7.5. The old site is on domain.com and the new site is on beta.domain.com. I want to test out how the load will affect the new server, so I want to begin sending users to the new site slowly. I want to start sending every 20th user to the new site and save a cookie so that a user that was directed to the new site will always be directed to the new site and a user which was directed to the old site will always be directed to the old site, as long as we don't change a key and "reset" the system.I was wondering where would be the best place to implement this behavior / logic?

Get Application Root From Request Object That Works Locally And Remotely?

Mar 15, 2011

Let's say that I have my ASP.NET web application in a directory called "MyApp" both locally and on a remote server. I'm trying to build an onclick response to a link. The response calls a Javascript function, passing it the URL of an .aspx page in my web app. The Javascript pops out a new window displaying the page. My C# code looks like this:

link = new HyperLink();
link.Text = product_num_str;
link.NavigateUrl = "#";[code]....

I started using the Request's Authority property because I was having problems running locally on the Visual Studio web server when I used the Host property. The problem was that Host only returned "localhost" instead of the host and port number. When tested locally, the code works because the "authority" maps to my app root folder. The URL generated is, e.g.,


If I run on a remote server, however, I end up with something like: http://company-server/ProductInfo.aspx?_num=123

This fails to find the page, because in this case the "MyApp" root folder must be included.There is probably an easier way - putting an entry in the web.config or something. My motivation originally was to allow the app to be published to a folder of any name and work as is. I could hack my approach and search the string for "localhost" or something, but that's ugly. So how do I build a string that will work everywhere?

Running Asp.net Site - Cannot Have Files At Root

Sep 28, 2010

I am a PHP developer and have been asked to make some slight amendments to an ASP.net site. I can make these amendments but the biggest challenge seems to be getting the actual site up and running on my own server! I have a had lots of errors with regards to the paths to files, as the website is linked absolutely to the root folder and on my development server I cannot have the files at the root. I have therefore worked my way through some of the files making the paths relative so I can at least see some of the site running but then I came across this error:

CS0103: The name 'Data' does not exist in the current context
Line 5: protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs args)
Line 6: {
Line 7: rptNews.DataSource = Data.NewsArticle.GetLatestNews(3);
Line 8: rptNews.DataBind();
Line 9: }

I assume this is something to do with data being called from a database. How to get the site and database up and running as I have no idea where to start and feel I am going round in circles.

Configuration :: Site Works At Root Of Domain But Not In A Subfolder?

So my website works great on my local computer. It also works fine when I use the Copy Web Site feature in Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. But I do not want all of my files and the default.aspx to be sitting at the root of my domain name. I want it to be in a subfolder.

So again, it works fine when it's sitting at www.domainname.com

But when I use my FTP program to move the files to:


I get an error when I try to visit the site. It's just a general runtime error and does not display the specific error message. It obviously must have something to do with when I MOVE the files/folders from the root of the domain to the subfolder?
