I am trying to "integrate" a third party solution with my umbraco website.
The idea is to have them as separate solutions but the url should be within umbraco website domain eg.:
www.myumbracowebsite.com is the website using umbraco
www.myumbracowebsite.com/myplugin should be showing site hosted under an alias.
Is it possible and how?
It's possible to do this using a virtual directory (at IIS level). The main thing that Umbraco needs to be aware of is to ignore it, (so that Umbraco doesn't assume it's a frontend request).
In the Web.config app-settings, there is one for Umbraco.Core.ReservedPaths, add the "~/myplugin" path to the value. (If you want to have multiple ones, then comma-separate them).
Hope this helps.
Adding something like "~/myplugin" to the reserved paths assume that it is a directory within the umbraco web app which won't be the case as the "plugin" is a separate solution.
I rather thought of getting it pointed to another domain alias eg. the "www.myumbracowebsite.com/myplugin" would show the website hosted under "myplugin.myumbracowebsite.com" or so - without redirecting it to that address.
Unless it is possible to tell umbraco to look into another project but "~/" assume the plugin sits within the root folder.
Is this possible?
It's been a long time since I'd set up a virtual-directory in IIS, but it's my understanding that it would become it's own web-app, (that's accessible from whatever path you gave it).
Then as Umbraco would be the main/parent web-app, it need to be aware of the virtual-directory, which is why you'd need to add it to the reserved paths.
One small amendment to what I said above, I've just realised that you said Umbraco v7.2.8, so it'd be an older app-setting option...
<add key="umbracoReservedPaths" value="~/umbraco,~/install/,~/myplugin" />
Hope this helps?
