Write to Virtual Directory in IIS6 ASP NET using VB
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have deployed a new ASP.Net 2.0 web site on a Windows 2003 server using IIS6.
I have created a Samba share folder pointing to a folder on our Unix server.
I have created a virtual directory called WebOrders under my Web Site root directory.
How can I create text files in this virtual directory in VB code? How do i reference the virtual directory in VB code? I am doing this because no matter what I try I cannot specify the actual path to the Samba Share in my textfilecreate method without getting a User or password invalid error! Very frustrating! I hope this works.
I can create the text files on a local server folder no problem. Also when I run the Web Site on my dev. server (Windows XP file system type site) I can access the Samba share path no problem. Only in IIS6 do I have this problem. I cannot deploy because of this.
Do I really have to create a separate batch file that simply moves the files from a local folder to the Samba Share periodically? Seems silly. I should be able to access any network resource I need to, no?
