Hopefully this all makes sense:
I have a Web Application project against an IIS7 server that is "theme-able" using different master pages.
As a result of what I am trying to do, the root of the project has no aspx files, so I am using the web.config's ability to rewrite "~/default.aspx" to "~/themes/a/default.aspx"
this works great as long as i type in "http://www.mysite.com/default.aspx", but typing just "http://www.mysite.com" results in a "403 - Forbidden: Access is denied" error
I was hoping that the combination of urlMapping and default document would be smart enough to handle this, but it's not
<system.webServer> <defaultDocument enabled="true"> <files> <clear /> <add value="default.aspx"/> </files> </defaultDocument> </system.webServer>
i also tried
<system.webServer> <defaultDocument enabled="true"> <files> <clear /> <add value="~/themes/a/default.aspx"/> </files> </defaultDocument> </system.webServer>
to no avail
I was hoping a browser would come in without a document defined, IIS7 would assume it was default.aspx, and then the urlMapping would map it accordingly, but nope
any pointers? I've read a ton of posts here with similar issues, but not the exact issue
