Web.config (IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET config sections)

ASP.NET configuration data is stored in XML text files, each named Web.config. Web.config files can appear in multiple directories in ASP.NET applications. When Smartsite iXperion runs as ASP.NET application, the web.config file should, of course, contain Smartsite specific configuration information.

The web.config configuration file is quite large and complex, and a detailed description of each section goes beyond the scope of this site. However, some sections will be discussed separately in the following articles. Furthermore, a more comprehensive description of each section can be found on one of Microsoft's sites (e.g. MSDN or www.iis.net) and/or the Microsoft Visual Studio Documentation.
