I have project that is a WEB site and not a WEB application.  A WEB site, since it is compiled on the fly, does not have a "My Project' folder and thus does not have access to the My.Application object.

So, I want to get the path of the root of my application.  I want to access custom text files that reside there as part of my app.

Server.MapPath is what you want.

Server.MapPath("/MySiteFolder/Folder/")

Open in new window


The more specific the better, for example specify a filename at the end.
