HELP! Re-Write rule
I have been looking around to get some help, basically it seems simple but...
We have installed Sitefinity under a folder called "Web" and now we are thinking to migrate it to live there is issue because URL looks like: localhost:15164/.../About and if we reference images simply using relative path like /images/arrow.png it won't work. Also in live Web will be visible on address & indexed.
We want a re-write rule where every page should start from root level.
a- Current URLs: (localhost:15164/.../About) or (localhost:15164/.../)
b- We want all the URLs to be without (Web): (http://localhost:15164/About) or (localhost:15164/.../)
Thanks in advance.
Do you run your site through the Sitefinity Project Manger? If so this is the reason you have this URLs: http://localhost:port/ProjectName/page
When you migrate it to live you will configure IIS to show the URLs you want.

Thanks very much Nadezhda, yes this is correct.
How do I run Current project without Sitefinity project manager locally? please point me to relevant resource section, many thanks.
You can create a web site in IIS.
For more information about configuring IIS to host Sitefinity projects, please refer to this article from our online documentation.Then you can browse the site from IIS Manager: in the Actions pane click Browse.
I have tried to bypassing Sitefinity Project Manager but when access from IIS, I get (CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master') error, my point is why it is trying to create DB while we are just trying to access it through IIS.
Thanks very much, will follow the article.
Basically, this error indicates that your user instance do not have permissions to alter/create database in SQL. You can find more information in this forum thread:
If the problem still persist would it be possible for you to:
1. Verify that the Application Pool Identity is NetworkService.
2. Check the Authentication section of your website in IIS. Verify that only Anonymous authentication is enabled and the anonymous user identity is the application pool identity.
3. Assign proper permissions over the App_Data folder for the NetworkService account
