    Umbraco taking control

    As expected umbraco takes control of the urls, however i have put this in the config


    <add key="umbracoReservedPaths" value="/umbraco/,/blog/" />


    This is so I can have a separate blog not part of umbraco in my site. However, when I go to the site /blog comes up with a umbraco 404 page - so umbraco is still controlling it. 


    I have in, physically, under /blog/index.php file - it should be rendering a wordpress site.


    Any ideas?

    I dont think you can run PHP and ASP.NET in same scope. I think you get a 404 because the PHP extension is not registered on the host and it expects a .htm or .aspx page.

    What happens if you hit the php page directly? Umbraco should not be intercepting the php calls.

    If php is installed, you could try adding index.php under default documents in iis

    Umbraco and PHP should run just fine next to each other. I think I've seen somewhere that IIS treats calls to /blog differently than /blog/ (trailing slash). Seems that umbraco is treating the /blog as a file instead of a folder.

    Do you have a wildcard-mapping in IIS somehow? Try adding the /blog to the reservedPaths as well:

    <add key="umbracoReservedPaths" value="/umbraco/,/blog/,/blog" />

    and see if that helps.

    I am having issues with IIS and Umbraco and the umbracoReservedPaths key. Removing the trailing slash from /blog, for example, doesn't fix the issue. I have tried url rewrites in IIS as well, but it wont really fix the issue because IIS is having problems determining the difference between files and folders. Is there a way to have Umbraco allow the removal of the trailing slashes for values in the umbracoReservedPaths key?


    For reference, my rewrite rule is: (and I have tried many variations of this configuration)

     <rule name="AddTrailingSlash" stopProcessing="true">
                        <match url="(.*[^/])$" />
                            <add input="{REQUEST_URL}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
                            <add input="{REQUEST_URL}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
                        <action type="Redirect" url="{R:1}/" />
