I'm configuring a site in
applicationhost.config for IIS 7.5 Express:
<site name="default" id="1" serverAutoStart="true"> <application path="/"> <virtualDirectory path="/" physicalPath="%IIS_BIN%\..\Somewhere\Else" /> <!-- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ --> </application> ... </site>
I've found that specifying relative paths as shown does not seem to work and will lead to an HTTP
500.19 Internal Server Error. IIS further reports error code
0x8007007b, which, after some googling, seems to indicate an invalid file path syntax.
Is there any way around this error, so that I can use relative physical path for my site's root?
