Hi,

I am using Url rewriting on my coldfusion application using the attached web.config file and it all works great but I now need to exclude a directory of /backoffice and all sub directories so when I navigate to this part of the site the url rewrite just ignores it and it works as normal.

I have researched on Google but am completetly stumped!!

url to ignore would be http://mydomain/backoffice anything other would redirect to index.cfm as per the rules.
web.config

Sorry for the delay in response, I have amended the file but this still redirects to index.cfm when I go to /backoffice.

Do I need to restart IIS everytime I make and amendment to the .config file?
