In IIS 5 files in the url: http://acme.com/_cache/cache-www.acme.com/v3.css are not accessible.
All files below "cache-www.acme.com" are unreachable. I've verified that the files exists. Permissions are not a problem. I've assigned "Everyone" to the files and give "Everyone" full rights.
What I have determined is in IIS 5 if there is a domain in the folder path, IIS 5 gets confused...
- This fails: acme.com/_cache/acme.com/v3.css
- This works: acme.com/_cache/acme/v3.css
The OS is XP SP3 running IIS 5.1. I'm working on an application that currently needs to be deployed to a remote server to run/test/debug. My goal is to use the local IIS to run/test/debug application, instead of copying the application across the wire and debugging remotely. The above issue is the remaining issue preventing me from running the site locally.
Unfortunately renaming the path isn't an option. This is a large .Net legacy application and making that type of change is not practical.
One of the below answers suggested looking for UrlScan. I was hoping it was installed, but alas it's not.
Any thoughts or feedback on this problem would be much appreciated.
