Hi All,
I am working on a web site project.<BR>
And it has the following set up:<BR>
web site name: madhu and <BR>
Local path: C:\madhu\Folder1(uses web.config file which is in Folder1 only).<BR>

But i have one file in C:\madhu\FolderXYZ\FileABC.doc.<BR>

If i try to access the FileABC.doc(Try to open the file) i get the error mentioned below:<BR>
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.<BR>
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.<BR>
Internet Information Services (IIS)

<BR>
I tried with using appsettings, configuration etc but could not able to resolve this bug.
PLEASE do send your ideas as early as possiable.

Thanks and with regards,

I think what's probably happening, is it's not being uploaded to the webserver. It would sound like you're using Dreamweaver, so, just in case, open an FTP program and upload it yourself.

Sorry if this is totally not helpful and I'm wrong - also, remember you can just hit [ENTER], you don't need to type <br>.

What does the code look like that is referencing this file in your project? Are you using the UNC or the literal location. Remember that Web address for you file is not what you would use to open the file in Windows.

Yes, I made it as Virtual (web) folder

Thanks with regards,

So just to clarify;

You have this folder C:\madhu which is a Web Project Folder (meaning you have it set as a Virtual Folder under IIS) ?

You have a Sub Folder which contains a file FileABC.doc, making the physical location for this file as c:\madhu\FolderXYZ\FileABC.doc, and you want to access it through the browser?

So to access it with the browser you would have to put this address into the browser address bar: http://localhost/madhu/FolderXYZ/FileABC.doc (Assuming you made the virtual directory under IIS the same name of madhu as you did the physical folder)

Hope this helps, if not please clarify the details so we can resolve this problem you are experiencing.

Could you please send me the URL that ur navagating.

Hi Kedar,
I could not able to send the URL, it is kept with high security in our office.
URL is specific to the user. Need proper Authentication.
I will try and get back to you.

Thanks and with best regards,

Hi Paladine,

I do work on this concept now. And i will keep you updated.
