Why Necessary To Create Virtual Directory In IIS When Website Content Is Placed In IIS Root Directory

Feb 13, 2010

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.

How To Create A Virtual Directory Under A Website

Feb 8, 2011

I was running it directly from Visual studio which resulted in this error :) I can clearly see the images when I run it directly from IIS!

I've created a website under IIS and have successfuly pointed it to my project. The path to my project under IIS is:


I, then created a virtual directory under website cartoon named cartoon_images but it creates it under localhost:36011/cartoon_images/ instead of localhost:36011/cartoon/cartoon_images/

As you can see, virtual directory is under the website "cartoon" but I can't access it as cartoon/cartoon_images/

I'll need to give links to this virtual folder but I can't do it in this case if I'm not mistaken.

Authentication For IIS Content In Virtual Directory Under MVC Website

Jul 27, 2010

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.

Make IIS Virtual Directory A Folder Again

Jun 29, 2011

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:

fileName = Server.MapPath(AppSettings("PdfFolder")) & "pdf\_FLYER.pdf"

The absence of the config file entry allowed the code to work. Its presence gave me the virtual directory error. So it's like Server.MapPath resolved to the correct place with a null argument.

Trying To Create A Proper Directory Structure For A New Website?

Jul 9, 2010

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?

IIS Application Pool Crashes When Create Temp Files In Virtual Directory

Aug 25, 2010

I have static content like html,css javascript stored in DB. when a user requests for these i create a temp file in virtual directory and return the url. My web app is hosted on a IIS server. On some systems on creation of a file my IIS Application pool crashes and restarts. If i disable file-monitoring though the problem is resolved, but i dont have this luxury when i am deplying at the client end. Is there any way by which i can avoid app pool crash during file creation? If not is there any way by which i can serve static content like html, css, images, xml and js without creating temp files. I would need a generalized way of handling all these data types.

Architecture :: Allow Each User To Create A Webpage On Domain / Virtual Directory Not Being Configured As An Application In IIS

Mar 1, 2010

I want to allow each user to create a webpage on our domain. example:

I've created a few pages that get content from database and place it in a folder. I want each user to be able to edit their own data and when they hit "submit". the system will then copy those pages to a folder and modify the code so it read from the right database.

I keep getting "virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS" errors. Is there any way around this error? I want the process to be 100% automatic so that I don't need to manually go into the server and configure the IIS myself.
