IIS 404 redirecting using a textfile ryan_b83 msg:3892095 3:03 pm on Apr 14, 2009 (gmt 0) Pardon my ignorance, I almost never use IIS. Basically is there an IIS equivalent to the Apache .htaccess file? I want to redirect all traffic within a folder to another URL (even when it hit's 404's). All i have found as solutions for this is done through the IIS GUI config, and I do not have access to that.

IIS has no such file. You will have to do this via the Administrative tools for managing IIS. marcel msg:3893652 12:15 pm on Apr 16, 2009 (gmt 0)
If your host is running IIS 7 and has the 'Microsoft URL Rewrite Module for IIS 7.0' installed you can define redirects in your web.config file.
<system.webServer> <rewrite> <rules> <rule name="Home.htm" patternSyntax="Wildcard" stopProcessing="true"> <match url="*/mydirectory/*" /> <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.website.com/newpage.aspx" redirectType="Permanent" /> </rule> </rules> </rewrite> </system.webServer> [/2] * Edit: the rewrite rule above has not been tested, so it may contain errors
