Hosting Custom ASMX within EPiServer 6


Hi all,

This is my first post, as we've just started using EPiServer as our main CMS platform. I'm having an issue converting a legacy site to EPiServer, the legacy site hosts two ASMX web services in the root of the site. I've added these files in but I can't seem to be able to browse to them.

Is there any configuration I need to do to access these correctly or set them up to run off a specific URL in the site without being processed through the EPIserver engine.

Thanks in advance for all help,

Hi Kevin,

There shouldn't be a problem getting webservices to work with EPiServer. We actually ship our own webservices ("/webservices") which are available from the start.

I would recommend you to take a look at their configuration in web.config as they have their own location element (webservices) and do something similar with yours.

Like Toni said make sure your web.config is correct. I would create a new web application project in Visual Studio using same .NET version that your CMS site is using and compare the two web.config files, look in the handlers section. Also remember that the web.config is different for IIS 6 and IIS 7. You can also post the content of your web.config here and we can take a look.
