Setting up IIS URL rewrite
Saturday 07, February 2015   |   Post link
Let's say we have a .NET Web appliation named 'MySite' having an HTML file which requests a .ZIP file using a URL link like "/Content/Download/myfile.zip". On a home Windows 8 PC, the absolute URL for this is http://localhost/Content/Download/myfile.zip. However, the same URL on a Web hosting environment resolves to http://localhost/mysite/Content/Download/myfile.zip.

In order to have the home PC do the same, perform the following steps:

  1. Install URL rewrite module from http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite
  2. Create a rule at the ROOT of the Web server (IIS) with the following options:
    • Requested rule matches wild-card pattern: "Content/*"
    • Ensure Ignore case is checked
    • Set ActionType to "Rewrite"
    • Set the Rewrite URL to "mysite/Content/{R:1}"
    • Select the "Stop processing of subsequent rules" 

A screenshot of the entire rule is shown:
