Troubleshooting ASP.NET5 Website in IIS


 

 

 

Recently I have published this blog, which talks about configuring the ASP.NET 5 application in IIS.

After you set this up, if you run into any issues while accessing the website you can enable the inbuilt logging provided within the HTTPPlatform Handler.

 

 

 

How to enable the logging ?

 

·         Open the Configuration Editor at the website level.

clip_image002[4]

 

·         Set the field stdoutLogEnabled to True as shown below:

 

clip_image004[4]

 

 

·         After the above setting is enabled, the logs will be saved under stdoutLogFile. The default location is: \logs\stdout.log. You can change the path and modify the path accordingly.

 

Scenario: 

 

Recently I worked with one of the customer who was running into the below exception in the stdout.log  file while accessing his website:

 

System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.Abstractions, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=adb9793829ddae60' or one of its dependencies. The filename or extension is too long.

File name: 'Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.Abstractions, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=adb9793829ddae60' ---> System.IO.PathTooLongException: The specified path, file name, or both are too long.

Solution :

 

 

We had to place the wwwroot and the approot to a different location so that the path doesn’t include more than 248 characters.
