Re-direct in IIS

Hi,

I have a question if it's possible to re-direct (re-route) a web request in IIS. For example if a user enters www.mysite.com in the browser I would like it to end up in mysite.com.

Is this possible to do? I'm working in IIS on Windows Server 2012.

Thanks for help!

Peter

Yes,

This should work:

<rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
  <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="true" />
  <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
    <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.(.+)$" />
  </conditions>
  <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
</rule>

You can do this in the web.config in your application:


 <system.webServer>
  <rewrite>
      <rules>
       <!--  put <rule> -->
      </rules>
    </rewrite>
0
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

I tried the rule but I got an internal server error. This is how I put it in my web.config:
 <system.webServer>
      <security>
        <requestFiltering>
          <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="2147483648"/>
        </requestFiltering>
      </security>
      <rewrite>
        <rules>
            <rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="true" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^www\.(.+)$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>
        </rules>
      
      </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>

What can be wrong?

Do you have the re-write module installed on the server?

I installed it and applied the rule again. This time I got no error but the redirect doesn't seem to take place. If I enter www.kanal10.se it doesn't rewrite it.

Thanks for help!

Here are some screen shots:
http://www.serverintellect.com/support/iis/url-rewrite-to-redirect-www-iis7/

From there it seems like I may have been off in the pattern match:
<system.webServer>
         <rewrite>
        <rules>
            <rule name="Remove www" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="true" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^(www\.)(.*)$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" url="http://{C:1}/{R:0}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
        </rule>
        </rules>      
      </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
