System.Web.Routing RouteTable not working with IIS?


Most of the time I write simple apps that run in the local ASP.NET development server.  I noticed when I started working with IIS more because of Windows Server AppFabric that my routes were not working when the web application is deployed in IIS.

For Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4 and IIS 7.5 here is what I’ve learned.

Step 1 – Make sure that you have installed the HTTP Redirection feature

This one was the killer for me.  I didn’t realize that this is not setup by the Web Platform Installer.

Step 2 – Modify your web.config

You are going to need the following

  <system.webServer>

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
<remove name="UrlRoutingModule"/>
<add name="UrlRoutingModule" type="System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule, System.Web, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
</modules>
<handlers>
<add
name="UrlRoutingHandler"
preCondition="integratedMode"
verb="*" path="UrlRouting.axd"
type="System.Web.HttpForbiddenHandler, System.Web,
Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/>
</handlers>
</system.webServer>

 

Step 3 – Create your routes

RouteTable.Routes.Add(

new ServiceRoute("AdventureWorks",
new DataServiceHostFactory(),
typeof(AdventureWorks)))
