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.

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?

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:

Configuration :: Specify Multiple Domains In Same Directory Using Web.Config?

Apr 8, 2010

I am using a Network Solutions (NS) shared hosting account. When adding two domain names to my NS account I originally had my entire hosting folder "/htdoc/" assigned to my first domain. I was instructed by customer service to create a new sub folder for each domain and assign the domain names to each one using my NS account manager. Each website is its own application with vastly different settings At this point my directory looked like this:


I then got this error:

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS

Naturally I called NS assuming that all they need to do was change a setting so that each sub folder would serve as the main directory for each site. Instead I was told that I need to configure /htdocs/ as its own application with a special web.config file configured to handle this in some way. Of course my next question was how do I configure the web.config to solve this problem and instead of answering the question they said that the question was outside the scope of their customer support.

What I need is simple. Code to add to a web.config with default settings in the /htdocs/ directory that specifies the sub directories as the parent directories for those websites and that no setting in any specifec site should have an effect on any others.

So I created a website in visual studio 2010 and I transfer it to my web host.

The problem is the webhost has the a file structure like this:


And I put all my files in wwwroot, and it works fine on the web.

So my question is - how do I either A) change the root application for IIS on my machine to be at the wwwroot levelB) change VS to let me copy files from the root directory in VS to the [URL] dirctory.

C# - Saving Files In The Root Website Directory In Apache

Jul 16, 2010

I have an ASP.NET application running on Apache server with mod_mono. If I have a folder called "temp" located in the website's root directory and run the following code

System.IO.TextWriter tw = new System.IO.StreamWriter("temp/test.txt");

it saves test.txt in C:Program FilesMono-2.6.4in emp on the server. If I add a slash to the directory name like this: System.IO.TextWriter tw = new System.IO.StreamWriter("/temp/test.txt"); It saves it to C:/temp. Both do not do what I want. How do I get the code to save the file to the temp folder inside my website's root directory? Is this a mod_mono issue or something to do with Apache? I have tried adding this line to httpd.conf Alias /temp "C:/Path_to_root_folder/temp" without any luck. I shouldn't have to use alias if the temp folder is within the root directory, correct? In my development environment which uses XSP as the web server everything works as expected. It is only a problem when running on Apache.

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 I want to 301-redirect the request to to 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.

HTTP POSTed Files Automatically Uploaded To Root Directory

Jun 14, 2010

I just inherited an ASP.NET WebForms web application that I was tasked with refactoring. One of the features is a file upload and while debugging I noticed that as soon as a file is posted to a certain page/handler, it is automatically uploaded to the root directory of the application. The file is then moved to the proper location. I can't seem to figure out whats causing this automatic upload of the file. Is there something I'am overlooking in ASP.NET WebForms that allows this to happen? Is it an IIS configuration or something?

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"/>

When I navigate to [URL] (the default page for the directory) it displays it without logging in (as I want). But when going to [URL] FormsAuthentication redirects to [URL] to login. There isn't a way to set the path for just "/" in the web.config, I get an error. This only happens on my ISP (hosted Windows 2003), I can't reproduce this issue locally on my test 2003 boxes.
