I'm sure this is more of an IIS configuration issue, but I can't seem to find a solution.
I currently have Stash configured with IIS as a reverse proxy. The problem I am experiencing is that if I try to look at the source of any web.config from a .Net project via stash, I receive a 404 error.
Due to the nature of web.config files I assume that there is a setting somewhere in IIS which prevents this sort of file being requested or returned as static content, but I can't seem to find a setting in IIS that would help resolve this issue.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
I actually managed to find a solution to this issue.
Turns out that as suspected at a global level web.config files are filtered out by IIS. This can be overridden on a site by site basis by adding the following to the sites web.config (in this case the base site that contains the reverse proxy configuration)
<security> <requestFiltering> <hiddenSegments> <remove segment="web.config" /> </hiddenSegments> </requestFiltering> </security>
