URL Rewriting subdomains

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi. I'm trying to create a mini-blog for some users which would use http://name.mydomain.ext form for access. Is it possible to use URL rewriting to transfer http://name.mydomain.ext to http://mydomain.ext/userarea.aspx?user=name. Thanks.

postbacks and url rewriting


Hi all,

I am using Intelligencia url rewriter for my project and have run in a small problem. I have a regular expression like

<rewrite url="~/(.+)/(.+)/(.+).aspx" to="~/Article.aspx?a=$3&amp;s=$2&amp;p=$1"/>

so a page request like

/parent/category/articlename.aspx is interpreted as /Article.aspx?a=articlename&s=category&p=parent.

This above is all fine, but now when I do a postback (a login block), it picks up the url /Article.aspx?a=articlename&s=category&p=parent and interprets as /Article.aspx?a=article&s=category&p=parent.

Now, how can I make sure that on the postback, it still throws back the original url /parent/category/articlename.aspx so that the url is properly interpreted?

How to access querystring values from javascript after url rewriting?

Hi mates, I´m using ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. The problem that I have is the following. I´m using url rewriting (in the Global.asax file) and people see urls like this:http://localhost:1855/uk/london but after I rewrite the urls I work internally with querystring values and the urls become somehting like this:http://localhost:1855/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1In my Global.asax after I create the proper url with the querystring values I just apply it with the following sentence (this is an example):Context.RewritePath("/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1");The problem is that from javascript using the following function I access the first url and not the second:function getQueryVariable(variable) { var query = window.location.search.substring(1); var vars = query.split("&"); for (var i = 0; i < vars.length; i++) { var pair = vars[i].split("="); if (pair[0] == variable) { return pair[1]; } } } I need to access the querystring values because I need to load values in a textbox using jQuery.autocomplete and Web Services. Can anyone tell me how to access the rewritten url to get the querystring values?Thanks in advance mates

Problems with url rewriting when using the ASP.NET development server

I've inherited a website which has been developed for IIS server. The hyperlinks in this website have a href attribute with the human readable form that appears in the url in the browser's searchbar. In Application_BeginRequest(), there is a method which will convert this into the acutal location of the page within the website's file structure.This works fine when running the website on IIS. However, when I am using the ASP.NET development server, the links do not work and I get a page not found error.I have noticed that Application_BeginRequest() is never called for the links when run using the ASP.NET development server. I have read that the ASP.NET development server will not serve pages that are outside of the application scope (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/58wxa9w5%28VS.80%29.aspx), as the human-readable urls would appear to be when first processed by the server.Bear in mind that the urls in the aspx files are in human readable form, so I can't just use ResolveUrl(), because they don't correspond to files in the internal file structure until they have been re-written.I want to get the website running on the ASP.NET development server so that I can test it locally on my machine, which I can't really do if I can't get the url re-writing to work. Is there a way around this problem?

asp:Menu causes sys undefined with URL rewriting

Hi, I'm developing using the new ASP.NET 4 and I ran into the following issue. When I put a Menu control into the web form, the menu causes the following code to generate just before the closing </form> tag:<script type='text/javascript'>new Sys.WebForms.Menu({ element: 'NavigationMenu', disappearAfter: 500, orientation: 'horizontal', tabIndex: 0, disabled: false });  As long as I don't use URL Routing, the page compiles and loads properly. But when I try to use URL Routing on the website, VS starts to throw "Sys is undefined" exception. However, this does not happen always. Most frequently it happens when I change somenting positioning-related in the CSS file, but sometimes the exceptions seems just arbitrary. I'm not sure which parts of code could help, if any. I would appreciate any help. Thx

URL Rewriting

Hi,   Hoping someone can help point me in the right direction here. I am building a custom application, it allows users to sign up and create an account and add details. What I would like to achieve is that when the page is visited: www.blahblah.com?userID=2 The resulting URL to the user is www.blahblah.com/RichardJones.aspx or www.blahblah.com/RichardJones I've had a look at url re-writing posts button cannot find anything specific to this scenario. Does anyone know of any good information sources where I could find out how to do this? Thanks in advance

Auth. across subdomains prevents Auth. on development machine

Is there any solution to the following scenario (which I'm in right now)...? I have 2 related websites under 2 related but distinct subdomains, 1 web server, 1 membership database Prior to configuring  these for cross-domain login, I could test the website in my development server that comes with VS2008. Then i make the following changes in the web configs of each site: identical authentications->forms element, both referencing the same domain identical machinekey elements identical membership, profile, and role providers with applicationName="/" And now, I just can't login. I can reset the password, access the db, etc, but i think because the development machine isn't in the subdomain or something, it won't let me test the rest of the authenticated-users-only pages. It's a very simple test I'm trying to do. There's very few pages, and a barebones webconfig in each, except for the elements inserted above. How can I get this to work so that I can test/debug from my development machine and still login and do everything I need to?  Thanks!

how to manage multiple asp.net applications on one hosting with subdomains ?



thanks for your time and attention.

I want to deploy multiple asp.net applications on same hosting with subdomains. How it should be manged ?

I just created a subdomain and deploy application in its folder; when I tried to access application with subdomain it shows the following error:

An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.
