Why Are My HttpHandlers Not Working For My ASP.NET Site on Cloud Sites?
HttpHandlers in Integrated Mode
This is actually the expected behavior because integrated mode changed the way modules and handlers are defined in the web.config--as compared to classic mode in IIS7 or IIS6. Integrated mode is the default for IIS7 and currently the default for all new IIS/ASP.NET websites created on The Rackspace Cloud. If your website code was originally written for classic mode or using IIS6, the web.config may need to be updated.
- Peter Kellner wrote a great article on How to use HttpHandlers such as .ashx files with IIS7 Integrated Mode. This briefly covers the differences between the old way to set up handlers and the new way.
- The Microsoft Developer Network also explains how to set up HttpHandlers for each of the above situations. This article covers the differences in detail.
