I have just taken over a portfolio of sites that all have every path specified with leading / at the start of it. So /images/image.jpg and /linkToPage.htm and /css/css.css etc etc etc
I want to create a staging environment for these sites all running from http://staging.companyname.com/virtualDirectory
- however when I do this all the image paths, links etc are broken because the the leading slash /. This because it's looking in the root of the domain folder rather than the root of the virtual directory folder.
Having worked with IIS 6 for many years this isn't my understanding of what should happen here. If the virtual directory is configured as an application then it should look in the root of the virtual directory (not the domain).
I did think that the "Enable Parent Paths" may be something to do with it, but seemingly not.
Can anyone help me on this, I am sure it's a simple setting I'm not familiar with.
