All possible ways an HttpHandler can be installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-436320852 posted

    There is a custom HttpHandler running on my development machine to handle old links that don't exist anymore. Problem is, there is nothing about it in any configuration file. I've checked everywhere I thought possible. Anyone have any idea where it could be installed, or is it just cached somehow?

    Are you sure it is an HttpHandler or Module? Could it be an ISAPI UrlRewriter in IIS? If not, have you checked in the web.config of parent folders? Have you found a class that seems to be doing this rewriting?

    I'm using UrlRewriting.Net, but it's not the culprit (the rules I created are being overridden). There is a class that extends IHttpHandler, and redirects from the old page to the new. However the project is a class library and isn't touched by any asp.net code. There's no reference to it in any configuration file. It was quite a while back, but I seem to remember trying to run it from a command-line.

    Rex, I am curious as to why you think this may resolve any issues? The user is asking what ways an HttpHandler can be configured, such as in the web.config file. How would re-registering IIS solve anything?

    Have you checked Machine.Config and the global Web.Config (if this is ASP.NET 2.0)?
