Configuration <location> Settings

Configuration settings can be applied to specific resources by using a <location> tag with an appropriate path attribute. The path attribute can be used to identify a specific file or child directory to which unique configuration settings apply.

For example, the following configuration file specifies settings at three levels:

  • Settings that apply to the current directory and all child directories (everything contained within the top <configuration> tag).
  • Settings that apply to the Sub1 child directory (everything contained within the <location> tag with a path attribute set to Sub1).
  • Settings that apply to the Sub2 child directory (everything contained within the <location> tag with a path attribute set to Sub2).
<configuration>
   <system.web>  
      <sessionState cookieless="true" timeout="10"/>
   </system.web>
         
   <!— Configuration for the "Sub1" subdirectory. -->
   <location path="sub1">
      <system.web>
         <httpHandlers>
            <add verb="*" path="Sub1.Scott" type="Sub1.Scott"/>
            <add verb="*" path="Sub1.David" type="Sub1.David"/>
         </httpHandlers>
      </system.web>
   </location>
   
   <!— Configuration for the "Sub2" subdirectory. -->
   <location path="sub2">
      <system.web>
         <httpHandlers>
            <add verb="*" path="Sub2.Scott" type="Sub2.Scott"/>
            <add verb="*" path="Sub2.David" type="Sub2.David"/>
         </httpHandlers>
      </system.web>
   </location>
</configuration>
