Conditional Page Re-direct


Hello,

I have a 'primary' intranet website and a 'secondary' backup of this site as
well. I would like to programmatically have the effect that if the
primary site is (page not found 404) not available, for it to access the
secondary site or at least be able to add a message with (or instead of) the
404 error dialog that the primary site is down and give the user a link to
the alternative (secondary) site.

Appreciate your help.

Create a custom 404 page for your site.
(http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2162)

You could probably use code as so:

<%

Const SITE1="www.site1.com"
Const SIT22="www.size2.com"

Dim sSite
sSite = LCase(Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME"))
If Not Left(sSite, 4) = "www." Then sSite = "www." & sSite

If sSite = SITE1 Then
Response.Write "That page wasn't found. Maybe try <a href=""http://" &
SITE2 & REquest.ServerVariables("URL") & """>here</a>."
Else
Response.Write "That page wasn't found on this site either. Sorry about
that.
End If
