Updated: April 2009

Defines the configuration file mappings for a Web application. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration

public sealed class WebConfigurationFileMap : ConfigurationFileMap

The WebConfigurationFileMap class is used to specify the Web file hierarchy. By default, the configuration uses the IIS metabase to determine the Web file hierarchy. In cases where IIS is not installed or the hierarchy on the server is different than the local hierarchy, the WebConfigurationFileMap class provides a means to define a custom hierarchy.

The WebConfigurationFileMap class can specify a single path or multiple paths related to configuration files.
