HttpHandlers not working in integrated mode for ASP.NET sites on Cloud Sites


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

Explanation

This behavior is expected because integrated mode changed the way that modules and handlers are defined in the web.config file, compared to classic mode in IIS 7 or IIS 6. Integrated mode is the default for IIS 7 and currently the default for all new IIS/ASP.NET websites created in the Rackspace Cloud. If your website code was originally written for classic mode or using IIS 6, the web.config file might need to be updated.
