I have a website written with .asp extensions. I want to change them to .htm extensions but still run them as .asp.

Its on a windows IIS5 server. - Is there an easy server side way to do this, without having to replace all the existing pages with new headers?

Also, i want to leave a 301 redirect for the existing pages to point to their new equivalent .htm pages.

Here's [webmasterworld.com] the think that shows how to do individual 301 redirects on a per-page basis.

Yeah - thats great - but can it be done server side rather than having to write it on each page?

I'm 99% positive that there's no way to perform 301 redirects on a per-page basis via IIS.

You have to explicitly insert the Response.Status on each page you want redirected.

Good! We'll learn you something new today. ;-)

Instead of right clicking on the site, simply right click on the particular page you want to redirect in IIS.

Jake-

How is that a per-page redirect via IIS? I'm not totally understanding it yet...

You have to redirect each page individually. So you go into the ISM, click on the page you want to redirect, and then fill the properties box out with a destination.

My instructions in that thread were for an entire site, but they work for folders and individual pages too. Just right click on the entity you want to redirect.

Ah, got it now. I was confused because the referenced post talks about doing a site-wide redirect. I wasn't aware of the available options at the page level.

That's why I left my 1% open... Thanks Jake!
