Simple IIS URL Rewrite needed


I need to create a simple IIS URL Rewrite rule that does the following:

If user accesses http (or https)://folder1/filea.asp

Redirect user to: http (or https)://folder2/filea.asp

Thanks in advance,

Hello. You can install the IIS rewrite module from this page :

Then you can use this guide :

1. Create a default website
2. Open the URL Rewrite module in the webpage configuration panel
3. Create a blank rule
4. Enter the pattern or the expression you want to rewrite.
try and see if this work for you in http / https?

(tested working in http)

<rule name="RewriteUserFriendlyURL" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="^folder1/([^/]+)/?$" />
                    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll" trackAllCaptures="false" />
                    <action type="Redirect" url="folder2/{R:1}" appendQueryString="false" />

Open in new window

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for the reply.

Does that rule work for both http and https?

I have a finite list of URLs that I need to redirect from one directory to another. So, I believe I the matchURL should be something more specific than <match url="^folder1/([^/]+)/?$" />, no?

Wouldn't that rule apply to all files in folder1?
Does that rule work for both http and https?
you probably can try it out, as I don't have a https site for testing. it should worked for both http and https.

Wouldn't that rule apply to all files in folder1?
any further clarification is needed here?
I needed a versions that works for a specific file in a specific directory. Not all files in a specific directory. How can I achieve that?

Thank you.
