Remove web.config inherit

Under an App in IIS 6.0 or newer version, if you add a virtual directory, it uses the web.config file of the parent, thie may cause problems in some cases. You can add app under a web site in 7.0 but in 6.0 it is not possible.

To prevent child app inheriting parent web.config, put your config notes within “location” tag. See below:

<location path=”.” inheritInChildApplications=”false”> your-settings </location>

For example:

<location path=”.” inheritInChildApplications=”false”>
<system.web>

</system.web>
</location>
