How to set default Web page for a website on Microsoft Windows Azure

0 votes

I have set up a website on azurewebsites.net. When I go to the url http:/website.azurewebsites.net/  - it doesn't load. But when I go to http:/website.azurewebsites.net/home.aspx - it loads.

I want that if a user goes to http:/website.azurewebsites.net/ - it loads with the home.aspx content or gets redirected to http:/website.azurewebsites.net/home.aspx

The following code doesn't work

 <system.webServer>
   <defaultDocument>
     <files>
       <clear />
       <add value="Default.aspx" />
     </files>
   </defaultDocument>
  </system.webServer>

Can anyone help??

This blog post should resolve your issue: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cesardelatorre/archive/2010/07/22/how-to-set-a-default-page-to-a-windows-azure-web-role-app-silverlight-asp-net-etc.aspx

Look at this section:

<defaultDocument> 
          <files>                           
             <clear/>                           
             <add value="Default.aspx"/>                      
          </files>
</defaultDocument>

Or you could Type to url map it. That should work.

Hope it helps!
