NearForums as sub-application

Feb 1, 2013 at 11:19 AM
Hey

I'm building an MVC4 site where I want to use nearForums. I just want to add the forum to a subfolder like www.mysite.com/forums. When I create the folder and setup the forum, it fails until I add all of my own Assemblies to the bin folder. After that it works.
Is this really necessary or did I do something wrong? Seems wrong to me. :)

Hi,
(If I understood correctly and you've set up an IIS subapplicatino for nearforums)
By default on IIS, subapplications inherits configuration items from the parent application. If, for example, you have for HttpModules declared at the parent web.config it will execute it on the subapplication pipeline.

Here you have a post with the full info about making a subapp "independent" of the parent app.

And the main documentation on this.

Kind Regards,
Jorge
