Hi all

Let say if I have 2 folders:

/admin
/public

Each folder I have to put the login.aspx ... now how do I control that if someone accessing through /admin then every page that located under admin folder will be redirected to /admin/login.aspx if the user trying to bypass the login?

Or similar thing if someone through /public then every page that located under public folder will be redirected to /public/login.aspx if the user trying to bypass the login?

At the moment I put below which works ok If you are accessing through /admin folder.

Thanks
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Admin/Login.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Admin/default.aspx" />
    </authentication>
    <authorization>
      <deny users="?"/>
      <allow users="*"/>
    </authorization>

You can have a folder specifig web.config files where you can override the settings in a higher-level Web.config file.
This provides a way have different configurations in different folders in a single ASP.NET application.

Hope this helps!

Hi tetorvik

Ok you need to have 2 virtual directories then ... one is for Admin and the other one is Public? In VS 2005 how do I setup this things? Do I need to create 2 web applications?

Thanks

You can simply add Public and Admin folders into your project. In the folders you should have the pages specifig to admin/public and the specifig configuration file (web.config) for both folders.

So only one application is required.

I would say ,the guidelines says u shud have only one login Page ,and u need to set up the roles of the user based on which he can browse to only those pages to which he has access.


<forms loginUrl="~/LoginPage/Login.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Pages/default.aspx" />

Hi Tetorvik

I did try your suggesting by using 2 folder on the same project and put each web.config on those folders but an eror comes out and also crate another project on for admin and one for public ... and it the same error:

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.  This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

You were right. it seems that there are certain properties in web.config which cannot be set to override the parent web.config (such as authenitication and session sections) unless the sub-directory is also configured as an application. I am sorry I wasn't aware of this limitation and had only been using multiple web.configs in other context.

Sorry for the trouble caused!
