Global Rules?

Any way to do global rules in RELEASE?

Tried IirfGlobal.ini (after iis restart) & IIRF.ini in .dll directory; both no worky.

I use per site configs but also have alot of global regexes for host matching, so global is easier for that.

there's no way to set up global rules.  It's an interesting idea.  But today, there's no possibility to do what you're imagining.

You can include configuration files into the per-site ini files, which might be good enough for you.   It looks like this;

  IncludeIni ..\commonIirf.ini

You can specify an absolute or relative path.  Check the documentation for more details.

ok thanks for replying, thats a shame becuase I found global rules in version 1 quite useful.

No worries I have split up all the rewrites into per-site rules now and I do agree it's more organised that way.

Thanks for your help and IIRF it's a great ISAPI Filter!

I have similar problem. Having recently looked at upgrading from an old 1.x, installation I have found now that I have to copy the ini file into every sub-application, whereas I used to just have one file that managed everything. Is there any way to revert back to 1.x behaviour...or am I missing something?

In 1.x we just had the one file that worked for every app and sub-app. Wasn't that globals rules?

Having recently looked at upgrading from an old 1.x, installation, the only way I have found is to have to copy the ini file (or do a IniInclude) into every sub-application, vdir.

Is there no way to revert or simulate 1.x behaviour?

There is no way to "Revert"  IIRF v2.x  to  IIRF v1.x behavior.

There's a page in the documentation that talks about migration from v1.x to v2.x.

Including a common ini file is probably the closest to what you want.  That feature was designed for that purpose.
