Custom 404 and 301's in ASP

Posted on 2009-07-06

I have a site that we are redeveloping that has to stay on the current host/environment. We do not have access to creating any type of redirection from .htm or .html files to any other type of files. However, we can create a custom 404 page.

The only server side scripting available is classic ASP (VBScript).

What I would like to do is have the custom 404 page get the URL that was originally requested and then do a 301 redirect to the new page.

Can someone tell me how to get the url that was originally requested in VBScript?

try this code.
the second line filters out the "404;" string.
URLstring = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_URL")
URLstring = Right(URLstring , (Len(URLstring ) - (Instr(URLstring , chr(59)))))
