Change location of /Util


For reasons that are too complicated to explain here, I need to change the location of the /Util folder. To be more specific, what I want is for EPi to redirect to, say, "/AnotherUtil/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=..." rather  than "/Util/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=...". This seems to have been possible using earlier versions of EPi but I cannot figure out how to do it for EPi 7.5. Is this still possible, and if so, does anyone know how to do it?

It seems changing the value of utilUrl (alone) in episerver.config doesn't do the trick... :-/

Hi Karl

Do you simply want to change the path where the login page is? Then simply change the login page url in web.config

    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".EPiServerLogin" loginUrl="/Another/Location/YourCustomLogin.aspx" timeout="120" defaultUrl="~/" />

(notice that EPiServer will still use /util/logout.aspx when logging out from CMS)

Or another way might be to use IIS rewrite to catch the /util/* urls and do a redirect (or execute something else in another place) to some other location.

There seems to be applicationSettings also for rebasing the utilUrl (attribute) folder:

(I just have my doubts does it really work as the /util/ folder is in the zip nowdays...)

Yes, I could never get the utilUrl attribute to work. However, I solved the problem using the IIS rewrite module as you also suggested. Thanks!
