    Error 404... again...

    Hi there,

    I have a client running uCommerce 3.0.1.12331 on Umbraco 4.10.1, and they only need to run the shop for one month a year; when they don't need the shop anymore they just unpublish it and then republish it again the next year. Every year without fail the request to /shop.aspx begins throwing a 404 error.

    Last year I fixed it by updating the URL Rewriter to use the built-in version in IIS 7.5, but now the site is throwing error 404 for /shop.aspx, but not for any calls to /catalog.aspx. The problem is that the page looks like garbage because the master page is not getting loaded.

    I checked the uCommerce store, and it's bound to the default hostname; I tried to bind it to the specific hostname, but that did not change the behaviour. 

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Interestingly, if I do a preview from the editor, it works fine. Seems like there's an issue with uCommerce binding to the hostname. Really could use some help / insight on this one.

    Hi Sheppe,

    Do you get the 404 page or do you just see the 404 web exception?.

    Best regards Martin

    Hi Martin,

    It's the 404 page served up by IIS.

    Another thing I just found out is that the client copied the website folder to a new name/location, and updated IIS etc to look to the new folder for the website. The rest of the website goes unaffected by the change, but I thought I'd include the info here just in case.

    Alright, I got it sorted out. Previously I could have the uCommerce site bound to the same hostname as the main site, and that worked just fine. Something's changed now, and that no longer works. I bound the uCommerce site to a sub-domain of the main site, and it started working.

    Good to hear you found a solution. Did you have two websites in one umbraco installation? (Just curios about your setup :-) )
