ASP.NET (C#) Question

ManagedFusion Url Rewriting not working

As per my other question UrlRewriter.NET with .NET 4.0 not working I was unable to get UrlRewriter.NET to work.

So now I have tried ManagedFusion. It works locally but does not work on the server BUT the errors are different and I sense that this might actually work and I have done something wrong in the configuration.

So my web.config settings are (condensed version)

<section name="managedFusion.rewriter" type="ManagedFusion.Rewriter.Configuration.ManagedFusionRewriterSectionGroup"/>

<managedFusion.rewriter xmlns="">
<rules engine="Apache">
<apache defaultFileName="ManagedFusion.Rewriter.txt" />
<proxy useAsyncProxy="true" />
<identity impersonate="false" />

<add name="RewriterModule" type="ManagedFusion.Rewriter.RewriterModule, ManagedFusion.Rewriter"/>

<validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" />
<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
<add name="RewriterModule" type="ManagedFusion.Rewriter.RewriterModule, ManagedFusion.Rewriter" />
<add name="RewriterProxyHandler" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="*" path="RewriterProxy.axd" type="System.Web.HttpForbiddenHandler, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
<defaultDocument enabled="false" />

My ManagedFusion.Rewriter.txt is

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

# Campaign

RewriteRule ^/Campaign/List /Campaign/List.aspx [NC]

Now this works perfectly fine on my local machine (Visual Studio 2010) but when I upload it I get a 404 that says it can't find /Campaign/List.aspx.

And on top of this it also goes to SSL, which I don't want as the SSL cert on that account is for a different subdomain and hence throws an SSL error.

Is there something I am doing wrong? It seems this time the URL module is handling all requests and this looks like I have configured it incorrectly somehow.

Hi this is actually a very common GoDaddy issue. I am going to post an update to this answer after I review my notes and forums on the CodePlex site.

(by the way I am the primary developer of it)

You mind if we take this offline, we need to chat back and forth so I can understand your setup. A quick way as explained in the readme.txt to trouble shoot problems is to turn on the logging.

RewriteLog /log/log.txt
RewriteLogLevel 9

The only problem with GoDaddy is that you need to create this log directory and give it write permissions, because if I remember right GoDaddy doesn't allow write permissions in the root.
