Visual Studio makes it easy to run your application project by using IIS installed in Windows. You don’t have to explicitly go to IIS Manager and deploy your application there. You can simply click the “Run” (green arrow) icon to view your project on browser.
If you don’t want to store confidential information in your application’s code or configuration files, you can use Azure Key Vault. It’s FIPS 140-2 validated and easy to use.
There are two ways to reference a file in your code: Using an absolute path (Ex: /folder/file) or using a relative path (Ex: ../folder/file). If you use a relative path in your ASP code but your IIS server is not configured properly, you may come across to “Disallowed Parent Path” error (ASP 0131 ASP_LOG_ERROR).
You may run into “The file has not been pre-compiled, and cannot be requested” error intermittently while accessing your ASP.NET application. The intermittent nature of the issue makes it hard to troubleshoot but there are a couple of common causes of this issue. Let’s have a look a them and the possible solutions.
