Hello! I’ve just started using Umbraco and I have used the following tutorial to get up and running
At this point everything appears to have worked as expected.
As part of the tutorial I have downloaded the latest version 7.2.8 at the time and I have created added the site into a virtual directory.
From WebMatrix when I click the URL http://localhost:xxxxx the site opens and everything looks great. I’m not sure if this is relevant but the fonoe starter kit is installed but other than that this is a clean install.
I can enter /umbraco/ after the URL and the admin section works perfectly.
Now the problem. When I browse to http://fanoe.com/virtualdirecotry/ the page displays but the css is not being applied and the images don’t display.
Using firefox I can see the following error
GET http://fanoe.com/css/fanoe.css [HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden]
Initially I thought this was a security issue but then I noticed that the path above should be http://fanoe.com/virtualdirecotry/css/fanoe.css
If I go back to the admin page and then go to the Master template under Settings -> Templates -> Master and change this line
stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/css/fanoe.css to be
stylesheet" type="text/css" href="~/css/fanoe.css (ie add a tilde in front /css)
The css is now being applied but the images still won’t load.
I’ve read the following article
but umbracoUseDirectoryUrls in the web.config file was already set to true
Also I have played around with change the image paths in the database as per http://shazwazza.com/post/sql-script-for-changing-media-paths-or-virtual-directories-in-umbraco/
If anyone is able to shed any light on what I am doing wrong it would be very much appreciated!! From my side it feels like I have missed a basic setting somewhere…….
I don't think I understand what the Virtual Directory is for, because you're not installing Umbaco in it, are you?
Anyway it occurs to me you could look at the Culture and Hostnames option. Right-click the top level node in your Content side, and pick 'Culture and Hostnames'
You should have in there already:
Try adding your virtual directory like
This may not be what you wanted to do! But check it out anyway.
Also, be aware that you have spelt 'Directory' as 'Direcotry' everywhere I can see. Just check that your spelling matches everywhere! :)
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the response.
This has definitely helped! I added fanoe.com/virtualdirecotry into the Culture and Hostnames and now all the link are hanging together correctly so thank you but unfortunately the images are still not displaying.
Regarding your question about the virtual directory, using the document https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/installation/install-umbraco-manually as my reference point it says “start IIS Manager and right click on the Default Website and choose Add virtual directory.” This is where I have placed all the downloaded files.
Somewhere I need to tell the application not to start at fanoe.com but start at fanoe.com/virtualdirecotry as I have also noticed that when adding new media it is saved to /media not /virtualdirecotry/media
Although there are indication that you can install Umbraco into a virtual directory, I have completely dropped the idea.
Can someone please help me out for the resembling issue?
I have configured an umbraco 7.3.1 website in IIS successfully and is working fine. Now, i have a requirement to add this Umbraco 7.3.1 Website to be inside a virtual directory converted to application in another parent website (Umbraco 7.3.1). But there is an issue while running that 7.3.1 site as subsite.
When i tried to access this site as for example like, Umbraco7.3.1site/Umbraco7.3.1Subsite. We are getting the follwing error.
Please provide your solutions for it, i have wasted almost a week over it.
My route for the 7.3.1 site is: "D:\delete me\UmbNewInstances\Parent"
Route for the 7.3.1 subsite is: "D:\delete me\UmbNewInstances\Child"
Let me know if someone wants any input from my side.
