virtual path from a physical one

Hi,

I was wondering is there a way to get the virtual path (i.e.
http://localhost/blah/blah) if you specify a physical one (i.e.
C:\wwwroot\inet put\exampleDir) .

I know you can do the opposite with Server.MapPath. However I'm
looking for going from physical to virtual path.

Thanks

:D

Actually no,

What I want is when I pass in to a function (i..e
C:\wwwroot\inet pub\test\test\t est), it will convert it to a virtual
root like http://localhost/test/test/test.

Is there something that does that?

Thanks

:D

Hi everyone my database is in a folder inside the inetpub folder (c:\inetpub\bd\mydatabase.mdb) and my web application is in a folder inside the wwwroot folder. My question is: Is there a way of accessing my database using virtual directories, that is, for example if I was using html I could achieve this putting "..\..\bd\mydatabase.mdb".

Hi - I'm currently using the FileUpload control to allow people to upload files to my website. This all works fine, as long as I'm going to a physical path on my server. However, I need to allow people to upload to a virtual directory. The directory may or may not exist on the same server as the Web site. I can't seem to figure out how to do this. If I pass the virtual

Hello, I have a web application with a virtual directory in it. With 'virtual directory' i mean a folder whose physical path is different from the physical path of the application, but in which Web Sharing is active. For example: my application is in "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyApp", the Virtual folder is in "C:\VirtualFolder", and IIS sees it as if it were in "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyApp\VirtualFolder".

Best way I can think to describe this is through an example. I have a virtual directory, let's call it "MyVirtualDirectory" that maps to \\MyServer\Shared. I have a path that is \\MyServer\Shared\SomeDirectory\SomeFile.txt. I need to convert this path to a virtual path with the virtual directory name. The result I'm after would be: MyVirtualDirectory\SomeDirectory\SomeFile.txt

Server.MapPath("~/page.aspx") returns the physical file path based on the specified virtual path. Is there any reverse method to get the virtual path based on the physical path (both pathes belong to the same web application)? Usually I do in this way: virtualFilePath = physicalFilePath.Replace(physicalRootDirectoryPath,"~/") Perhaps, is there standard inbuilt method?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
