Configuring Specific Files and Subdirectories 

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. Only one file path can be used in the path attribute. The path attribute can start with the "~/" shortcut which indicates the application root. For more information, see ASP.NET Web Site Paths.

For example, the following example 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" type="Type1"/>
        <add verb="*" path="sub1" type="Type2"/>
      </httpHandlers>
    </system.web>
  </location>
   
  <!-- Configuration for the "sub1/sub2" subdirectory. -->
  <location path="sub1/sub2">
    <system.web>
      <httpHandlers>
        <add verb="*" path="sub1/sub2" type="Type3"/>
        <add verb="*" path="sub1/sub2" type="Type4"/>
      </httpHandlers>
    </system.web>
  </location>
</configuration>
