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 have an ASP.NET MVC application for which I store uploaded content files in a virtual directory. This virtual directory is directly underneath my MVC website in IIS. My problem is that the virtual directory allows anonymous access. Anyone, logged in or not, can type in a public URL to my virtual directory and read the files in it. Is it possible to configure IIS (or something else) in a way that forces any requests to this virtual directory to run an authentication/authorization routine before allowing access?
Is this something I can configure in my website's web.config, or does the request never hit any server side code in this case? If it never hits server side code (and feeds the request directly to IIS), how can I change my implementation to require my site to authenticate/authorize and then serve my file.
I am developing an ASP.NET 3.5 website using Visual Studio 2008 professional on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. The website is hosted on the local machine IIS with no problems at all. I got a new server (Windows Server 2008 R2), I created a new virtual directory on IIS to host my website. When I try to publish it, I get this error: "The Web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed." I have searched online and it appears that FrontPage extensions have been removed from IIS 7.5
upload files to my website, but I won't to save it to the same folder where my website is on any given server. I also want to read these files with code.How do I get the directory of the local folder in which my website files are?
I have web code that was trying to process a pdf file and it wasn't working - I was getting a path "is not a valid virtual path" error, so in IIS (O/S is Windows 2008 R2) I made the folder a virtual folder. That didn't work and I got it working in another way so I want to make that folder just a regular folder again and not a virtual directory.
Also, I don't understand the way in which I got it working. I had the site working on one server and not another, so I compared them. I realized where it was working I hadn't added an entry to the web.config file that I was trying to read. This is the config entry:
<add key="PdfFolder" value="wherever"/>and this is my code:
Can you point me to a url for the proper directory structure to create for a new website?I can create a website project and add class library projects to the solution to create a fully functional website.My grey area is that I need to zip up the web site solution and hand it over to the client.I'd like to make sure that I hand over a solution with the most proper directory structure.I'll run you through a scenario:
1. Select File > New > Web Site > ASP.NET Web Site from the main menu 2. Save with a path of C:ProjectsTestWebSite 3. Right-click the solution in VS and select Add > New Project > Class Library 4. The new class library is added with an automatic path of C:ProjectsTestWebSite (2)MyClassLib1
It seems like there should be a way to create a better structure for this but I'm just not following the correct process. Can you point me to a url with instructions for managing a proper structure for this?
