Why Are My HttpHandlers Not Working For My ASP.NET Site on Cloud Sites?

HttpHandlers in Integrated Mode

If your website is running in integrated mode, you may have noticed your HttpHandlers no longer function even though they are set in your web.config.


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.
