Configuration :: Why Is The Directory Only Seen When Outside The Root Path

Dec 2, 2010

I'm trying to deploy my web project to my local IIS server (C:inetpubwwwrootlunchbox). By default the in is created inside the project directory - i.e lunchboxin. This setup, however, gives me the following error when I try to open the site:

When I move the in directory outside the project root (i.e C:inetpubwwwrootin), the site opens up just fine. I'm also able to test the web project from Visual Studio without any issues.

Can someone tell me why I have to move the in directory outside the project root to make the site work? What can I do to not have to do this?

C# - File.Exists Using The Wrong Root Path?

Mar 17, 2011

In my c# class I wrote I have a photo property that returns the photo source if the image exists (nothing or default image otherwise). In my code I use:

public string Photo
string source = "~/images/recipes/" + id + ".jpg";
if (File.Exists(source))
return "~/images/recipes/" + id + ".jpg";.......

If I get the FileInfo() information for this image I see that I tries to find this image in the following directory: C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesMicrosoft SharedDevServer10.0~images ecipes Of course the image is not located in that directory and File.Exists is returning me the wrong value.how can I fix this?

C# - How To Pass The Data Path For Object Flash Tag From The Root Directory

Sep 21, 2010

I'm using urlrewriting to rewrite my url. Let me introduce my problem by bellow example: Here is old url: http://localhost/test/pages.aspx?pageid=1 I have 2 cases to rewrite:


The first case is ok, but I would like to use the second case. In this case I must use root path for image, css and object tag (for flash):

With image, I modified to: <image src="~/images/icon.jpg" runat="server"/>
With css, I modified in head tag: <head runat="server">

But with the object tag, I don't know how to set root for the data, movie parameter:

<object data="anim/head.swf?xmlPath=./menu_flash.html" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="962" height="228">
<param name="movie" value="anim/head.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />

Custom Server Controls :: Make Root Relative Path?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm creating a custom server control which needs to take in a root-relative path for one of it's properties. I use the UrlProperty, but when I select a file in the markup, the selected path doesn't inlcude the the "~/". I'd like to mimic the behavior of a hyperlink. So let's say I have this:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl

When I type in an equals sign after the NavigateUrl property, intellisense pops open a URL picker and I can pick from any page to produce this code:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl="~/default.aspx"

this code has the "~/" in front. When I use my control, I have this:

<cc1:TestControl ID="TestControl1" Url="default.aspx"

the C# code has this property:

public string Url { get; set; }

Does anyone know how I can make the "~/" be placed in front to make a root-relative path?

ImageUrl Trying To Display An Image Outside Of Project Root?

Jan 5, 2010

I am working with two different web sites in asp.net. In the first project i upload some images to a specific folder under the project root and save just the filename in the database, now i am trying to display this images at some page of the second project I know the filename from the database and the image folder as absolute pat but I have not been able to display the image, even thought when looking in firebug the image src is correct src="D:/MyFolder/image.jpg" the image does not display, probably because it is not pointing in the right directory. I have also tried using Server.MapPath and then my D location but still no success.

C# - Controller Path Not Found For Static Images?

Mar 25, 2010

I have an image folder stored at ~/Content/Images/

I am loading these images via

<img src="/Content/Images/Image.png" />

Recently, the images aren't loading and I am getting the following errors in my error log. What's weird is that some images load fine, while others do not load.

what is wrong with my routes? Am I missing an ignore route for the /Content/ folder?

I am also getting the same error for favicon.ico and a bunch of other image files...

Root Path With Tilde - Doesn't Change Upper Case To Lower Case

Dec 30, 2010

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. "

Web Forms :: ScriptManager Uses Website - Root Instead Of Application Root Directory

Jan 27, 2010

I ran into the following issue when trying to run a test website on IIS 7.5 (Windows Server 2008 R2 DatacenterEdition). The web-app is configured to run with framework version 3.5 in a .Net 2.0 app pool. Also the framework 4.0 beta 2 is installed on the server. The application named 'TestPfade' is located under the website's root named 'Default'. It is not only a virtual directory but defined as an application. The folder structure looks like this: The markup of the sole document reads as follows:


When viewed in a browser the image gets shown because the given relative path is correctly resolved to 'images/Lighthouse.jpg' but the paths to the ajax-framework resources also include the application's root folder and therefor aren't found: 'src="/TestPfade/WebResource.axd?d=1bX...' Here is the complete html-source generated:

C# - Changing Output Path In Web Project In VS2010

Jan 7, 2011

I have several ASP.NET web projects and their Output folder are set to "C:Builds[ProjectName]bin" (instead of the default "bin" folder). This makes "F5" Debugging not working because the ASP.NET Development Server expects the "bin" folder under the project folder.

I then changed to use Local IIS Web server (http://localhost/webproject1") and manually updated the vdir physical path to my custom output path. However the VS2010 will not load the csproj because it detects the url is already mapped to a different folder location.

I know I probably shouldn't change the Output folder. But wondering if there is an easy way to workaround this? The goal is to make "F5" debugging work with custom build Output folders.
