Hi Experts

Please can you advise the simplest way to get a redirect put in place for a classic ASP site running on IIS6 on a Windows 2003 server, so that whenever someone tries to visit, for example, http://abc.com (without the www) it redirects them automatically to http://www.abc.com

I can also set ASP.net to run on this site, if that helps.

I would like a solution that does not require 3rd party software.

500 points.

Thanks

IIS7 has a built in url rewriter, since you're using IIS6, you would need to install something like isapi rewrite for the same type of functionality. since you're not seeming like you want to use a third party component, your only viable option is to write code.

check out this tutorial for the full reference to the code below:

<%

svrHttps = request.servervariables("HTTPS")
svrHost = request.servervariables("HTTP_HOST")
svrUrl = request.servervariables("URL")
svrQueryString = request.servervariables("QUERY_STRING")


IF left(svrHost,4) <> "www." THEN


IF svrHttps = "off" THEN
svrNewUrl = "http://www."
ELSE
svrNewUrl = "https://www."
END IF


svrNewUrl = svrNewUrl & svrHost & svrUrl
svrNewUrl = replace(svrNewUrl,"default.asp","")
svrNewUrl = replace(svrNewUrl,"index.asp","")


IF len(svrQueryString) > 0 THEN
svrNewUrl = svrNewUrl & "?" & svrQueryString
END IF


response.status = "301 Moved Permanently"
response.addheader "Location", svrNewUrl
response.end

END IF

%>

Open in new window


if you have an include file that's near the top of each page, you could put it in there (such as a header or a common library file you load for each page), that way you don't need to touch each file to implement this functionality

Minor update / extra code required - had to declare each of the variables, but once I did that it worked perfectly.

Dim svrHttps
Dim svrHost
Dim svrUrl
Dim svrQueryString
Dim svrNewUrl

Thank you!

it's been too long for me to remember but the code might be able to be placed in global.asa . that should run for every (asp?) page. not sure if you neeed to configure IIS for it.
