Breaking Up Web.config File System.webServer Element

Jun 25, 2010

I am trying to break a large web.config file into smaller parts. This has been covered a few times on different stack overflow questions (like this or this) which recommend using the configSource or file attributes. The problem is this does not work for the system.webServer section used to configure IIS 7 in integrated mode. This is particularly bad for web.config files that have IIS Rewrite rules which tend to bloat the files.

Sep 29, 2010

I'm looking at an application, i notice that there are assemblies defined into two places. In web.config there is configuration/system.web/compilation/assemblies/add elements. In the project file there are references setup under the Project/ItemGroup/Reference elements.

I was wondering, what is the difference between assemblies/references added in either location?

Configuration :: Define HttpRuntime Element In The Config File?

Feb 21, 2011

The httpRuntime element configures ASP.NET HTTP run-time settings that determine how a request for an ASP.NET application is processed.

Is it a good idea to customize this element in the config file.

The user has indicated that the application seems to be kicking her out, even though she is sure that she is submitting a form faster than every 30 minutes.

My Config file has these vales set, am I missing anything?

Include Email Address "display Name" In Smtp Element Of Web.config File?

Feb 1, 2010

I'm working on an EmailSender, and I'm grabbing the email address from my Web.config file. I'd like to also grab a "display name" for that email, from the same section if possible, but I'm not seeing an obvious way to do this. In my Web.config file, I have included a default "from email address", like this:

<smtp from="[URL]><!-- no displayName attribute :( -->
<network ... />
In my EmailSender, I have something like this:
var smtpSection = ...;
var message = new MailMessage();
message.From = new MailAddress(_settings.From, senderDisplayName);

Is there a recommended way to store senderDisplayName in a web.config file? Is there some way to include it in the from attribute? For example:

<smtp from="Automatic Mailer [URL]">

Or does it need to be a custom element in appSettings? Or is there some other way?

Millions Of Non-breaking Spaces In An ASPX File?

Oct 18, 2010

Has anyone ever seen an instance where Visual Studio (or possibly SourceSafe) would decide to insert about 9 million non-breaking space characters at the end of a line in an ASPX file?I'm trying to figure out if this could be some weird bug, or if a programmer fell asleep with her head on the space bar, while in design view... and then went ahead and checked the page into SourceSafe without noticing what she'd done.

C# - Why Does The System.configuration Differentiate Between Web.config And App.config

Jan 15, 2010

While using a third party dll I was getting the following exception - "exePath must be specified when not running inside a stand alone exe" with following trace

System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfigurationImpl(ConfigurationFileMap fileMap, Boolean isMachine, ConfigurationUserLevel userLevel, String exePath).

The reason I found was that it was looking for app.config and I had provided the details in web.config. My question is why does the system.configuration differentiate between web.config and app.config.

Protecting The (location) Element On Web Config?

Oct 26, 2011

Now since i'm securing the site i've noticed that the location element does not get much attention.The only thing i have found is that you can use <location path="" allowOverride="false"> on machine.config .I'm not sure how this goes but if you need to use this one every page then i will have multiple problems.First if i have a page with the same name on another website there is trouble and also if i need to update pages again problem.What i'm not sure of is if the location element on machine.config i just used once and then magically every site you have will throw an exception if a hacker changes you web.config.I have doubts and it's confusing and if i play with the server web.config,well i don't wanna mess with that.

So i also tried to encrypt the location element but i cannot find an example(can you encrypt it?).I can encrypt authorization and authentication but i will not go inside the location element.Just the standard authorization and authentication nodes.How can i secure the web.config location element so no hacker can change the allow,deny,etc.

Specify More Than One Directory In Web.Config's Location Path Element?

Jan 5, 2011

In my ASP.NET's Web Config file I have the following location elements defined:

<location path="">
<deny users="?"/>
<location path="dir1">
<allow users="?"/>
<location path="dir2">
<allow users="?"/>

The example above is specifying that all directories will be locked down to anonymous users except the two directories dir1 and dir2. I'm curious if there is a syntax that I can use that will allow me to define more than one directory within one location element. For example, it would be convenient if we could do something like this...

<location path="dir1,dir2,etc">
<allow users="?"/>

Setting The ExecutionTimeout Element In Applications Web.config

Jun 23, 2010

I'm having some trouble setting the ExecutionTimeout element in my applications web.config. My page is making a lengthy webservice call and times out after 110 seconds. (the default I believe). I set the value to 220, and make sure the compilation debug=false.

Does the compilation setting refer to when IIS/ compiles the ASPX pages when a client requests them, or does it refer to the visual studio compile process there the assemblies are created. Would using an assembly built using debug in visual studio still allow the above settings to work?

Configuration :: How To Merge A Distribution Web.config File And An Existing Web.config File

Mar 30, 2010

I'm preparing to deploy a ASP.NET web application. The target server has already a previous version of my web application with parameters specified on the web.config file.

In the new version of this web application, the web.config file contains new sections I would like they appear into the target web.config file on the server.

However I can't find the way to merge the new web.config sections into the existing web.config file ?

Does I have to do it programmatically, or is there a tool to merge the both files during installation ? (I'm using Web Setup Project).

Configuration :: Cannot Overwrite Pdf File On Webserver

Jul 21, 2010

We recently migrated applications from one web server to another. Previously they could upload files to the server and if it already existed, it would over write with the new one.

Now I have to manually delete the file from the server so they can upload a new one. If I delete it they can upload a new one and even upload one to overwrite the one they uploaded. But only after I delete the "migrated" one.

All of the security is correct. ASPNET and IIS_WPG have permissions.

Da Code:

If System.IO.File.Exists(UploadLoc + Me.FileUpload_PDF.FileName) Then
System.IO.File.Delete(UploadLoc + Me.FileUpload_PDF.FileName)
End If

Me.FileUpload_PDF.SaveAs(UploadLoc + Me.FileUpload_PDF.FileName)

I get the dreaded "access to the file is denied"

Update: I find if I give "USER" modify rights it works, but that does not seem secure.
