We have a site at store.mysite.com.

Some of the links marketing as published link to store.mysite.com/store/

If a user clicks this link, it just goes to a 403 error page. Is it possible to make IIS redirect requests to store.mysite.com/store/ back to store.mysite.com?

Thanks!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
       <rewrite>
  <rules>
   <rule name="Redirect to Root" stopProcessing="true">
     <match url="^store/(.*)" />
       <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^(www\.)?mysite.com$" />
       </conditions>
      <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:0}/{R:1}" redirectType="Permanent" />

Incase of IIS 7

Set the Default Document for the Website  IIS

Allow directory browsing option Enabled if you still face any error and check


Or Set in webconfig file
