Custom UIUrl is causing error

Vote:
 

I have an EPiServer 11 site. I customized the uiurl and this had been working for several months. Recently however, it has stopped working. I get the following error in the windows event log when I browse directly to the uiurl:

Exception information:
Exception type: HttpException

That directory is virtual, so I am not sure how/why it would be able to find it or not find it. And also why this was working but has stopped working.

Hi Ethan,

From looking at the config, I notice you've not shown the <virtualPathProviders> section in <episerver.framework>. Has that been updated to look something like this?

    <virtualPathProviders>
      <clear />
      <add name="ProtectedModules" virtualPath="~/cutomuiurl/" physicalPath="Modules\_Protected" type="EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathNonUnifiedProvider, EPiServer.Framework.AspNet" />
    </virtualPathProviders>

Beyond that I'm assuming that your protectedModules rootPath value in the config above is meant to be "~/customuiurl/" as well?

Paul - 

I did have the UiUrl correctly set there.

It turns out that the problem was caching. I was explicitly setting the page output cache. I was setting it on the OnResultExecuted method of the PageContextActionFilter (From the Alloy template). It seems that this action filter gets called even in the CMS. So, I removed it and made a separate filter that I then explicitly call on my pages only.

Thanks

Ethan
