In IIS I have web site with .Net application, accessible like this:
The site requires authentication, so when I access it, it redirects as expected to http://site1.example.com/myapp/login.asx
I exported the configuration, and then used the file to create a new site under the same server. Now, when I access the new site at http://site2.example.com/myapp, it redirects to http://site2.example.com/MYAPP/login.aspx. Note the upper case for the app name.
Before I imported the xml configuration file, I edited it to set different root directory for the application (where I placed a copy of the existing one), so this is not the problem.
When I look in MetaBase.xml, the AppRoot for the virtual directory in the newly created site was set to /LM/W3SVC/1584782141/Root/MYAPP, while in the exported xml file, as well as in Metabase.xml but for the original virtual directory its lowercase, as it should be.
I edited the MetaBase.xml (in IIS the online edit of metabase is allowed) and saved it. No change at all. I reloaded the Metabase, the correction is in place, but it just don't work - it always redirects to the capitalized version of the URL.
This happens only when redirecting to login.aspx. If I hit directly the login page - i.e. I type the url in the browser, it stays as I typed it.
Also, if I hit a "not protected" page in the directory, it keeps the case as it should.
Any idea where else I can look to fix that issue?
