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.

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.

MVC :: Routing Error On Default Route In Virtual Directory?

Feb 17, 2010

I have an application that I run in several places (demo, production, local, etc.) that all use different virtual directories for the placement of the MVC application.

I use StructureMap in this application, so I am overriding the ControllerFactory to use StructureMap to build controllers (when the passed controller instance is not null).

My problem is that the controller instance being passed to the controller factory IS null, which is fine if said route didn't exist, but it does... specifically, it should be my DEFAULT ROOT route.

Basically if I host the app at [URL], everything works fine except when I have a '/' on the end of the URL (meaning,[URL]... the latter works fine, while the former gives me the error). It looks like when that slash is there, the routing engine is deciding that it should be looking for a controller named MvcController, which doesn't exist, and which then passes the null controller instance to the ControllerFactory, resulting in the following error:

The controller for path '/Mvc/' could not be found or it does not implement IController.
My Default route is the standard default route. Removing all other routes has no effect. My default controller is HomeController.

Security :: FormsAuthentication At Root - Displays Without Logging In When Navigate To URL (the Default Page For The Directory)

Jan 18, 2011

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.

Use Default.aspx In Root Folder To Redirect To Application?

Aug 19, 2010

How can I setup the code in default.aspx to automatically direct the user to the default page for the application. If the user types the server name as in http://MyIntranet, I want them to be redirected to [URL]


IIS threw back the error that the operation requires IIS integrated pipline mode, which obviously isn't available because we're running IIS6.

ASPX Authentication Cookie In Virtual Directory

Nov 2, 2010

I have 3 applications running at my end.


I have a login page in three of these applications. When I login in either of these applications the .ASPXAUTH cookie is set but I am seeing that all of the three applications are updating the same .ASPXAUTH cookie instead of creating individual one. For example a user login on "RootSite", .ASPXAUTH cookie is created, now the user comes and login in the application "RootSite/VirtualDirectory1" and this time I am seeing the same .ASPXAUTH cookie is updating. I am confirming this because the created date of this cookie has been changed. So this means instead of creating a new cookie it is using the same cookie. How can I resolve this ? I don't want to interfere the logged-in logged-out status of one application with the other?

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:

Installation :: Development To Web Movement: Directory Listing Denied - This Virtual Directory Does Not Allow Contents To Be Listed

I made a web form on a development website of mine (we'll call it and tried to publish it out to the web (we'll call it [URL]) in a subfolder. I named it default.aspx like I was supposed to and it worked flawlessly on the dev site. When I published it out the web, I wound up getting the following error when trying to get to the subfolder: [URL] Directory Listing Denied

This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed. Confused and flustered, I tried to go to [URL], but I wound up with some error that won't tell me the problem. Instead it tells me to change the my web.config to read <customErrors mode="Off"/>.

IIS 7.0 - Every Site Suddenly Redirecting Root Request To Forms Authentication?

Apr 30, 2010

Suddenly, IIS 7.0 is redirecting every request for the root of any domain hosted on the box to ~/Account/Logon, which is our Forms Authentication redirect. Additionally, some JavaScript and image requests are being similarly redirected, but not other aspx pages.

EDIT: It turns out that something has gone wrong with the disk permissions. Can anyone point me to the way things are supposed to be in Windows Server 2008 for a standard ASP.Net installation? The disk permissions are out of whack now.

Redirecting To The Directory Page

Jan 11, 2011

I have an web application. The problem is when I click on "view in browser" for the default page (and I have set this as the start page) it redirects me to the Dirctory listing. I have tried to change the settings in the properties page of the project to the default page, but I still get redirected to the Directory page. I have also checked the source code and ensured that NO code is written to get the page re-directed to the directory page. Not sure why this happens. Has it anything to do with any settings change in the IIS?

VS 2010 How To Change Root Directory

Dec 21, 2010

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.

But now in VS, since I had to add [URL] folders, I am getting compile errors that say "This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS".

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.

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

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?
