I use IIS 7.5 with the Application Request Routing and URL Rewriting modules to act as a reverse proxy for several apache-based web sites, including VisualSVN Server. I'm having a problem when I try to commit a Web.config file, TortoiseSVN gives me the following error:
Sending content: C:\Users\Tim Long\Desktop[obfuscated]\www\1\admin\Comments\Web.config Error: Commit failed (details follow): Error: '/svn/TiGra/!svn/wrk/852c5a84-a682-2847-8b29-6d5b353ff786/trunk/Webs/[obfuscated]/www/1/admin/Comments/Web.config' Error: path not found Finished!:
In the IIS logs, I see a 404 not found:
2011-08-05 17:47:05 192.168.162.52 PUT /svn/TiGra/!svn/wrk/852c5a84-a682-2847-8b29-6d5b353ff786/trunk/Webs/[obfuscated]/www/1/admin/Comments/Web.config - 80 - 192.168.162.35 SVN/1.6.17+(r1128011)/TortoiseSVN-188.8.131.5211+neon/0.29.6 404 8 0 0
I suspect this is because IIS is configured to disallow
*.config files from being served. I've edited the request filtering rules for the site and explicitly allowed
.config files, I've also added a MIME type of
text/plain, but no joy.
Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get IIS to correctly allow
Web.config files to pass transparently through to the back-end VisualSVN server?
