    Access files in Media Folder

    I try to pass a JSON file to a variable in a partial view. The JSON-File is stored in Media-Folder.

    I got a 401 if I use the full url.

    var json = webClient.DownloadString(@"");

    What is the reason?

    How can I render the pysical path (like c:\home\site\wwwroot\media\laghsvgk\json.json) of the media file?

    Hi Christian,

    I guess you have the json file in your own server and not in a external site?

    If that's the case you should use something like this instead:

    using (StreamReader r = new StreamReader(Server.MapPath("~/media/laghsvgk/json.json")))
         string json = r.ReadToEnd();
         //then cast it to your model or whatever.
         List<Item> items = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<Item>>(json);
