301 Redirect in sharepoint 2007


All replies

  • If you're using IIS7 you could use the URL Rewrite module from the SEO Toolkit. It would allow you to configure the redirect using the IIS Manager UI. In case of IIS6 you will need another solution such as URL ( which allows you to enter the redirect entries in web.config. Other approaches would involve custom code and a custom HTTP Handler/Module.

  • Hi Weldek,

    Thanks for your ans. Now we are using IIS6. I did the following.

    1. Select the directory def (as mentioned above) in iis and set the value of "A Redirection to a URL" under directory tab with selecting the check box "A permanent redirection for this resource".

    2. Now Type in browser and check it in Fiddler.

    3. Following is the result.

    HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
    Content-Length: 171
    Content-Type: text/html
    Location: [The url specified in IIS]
    Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
    X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
    Date: Fri, 13 Aug 2010 23:50:32 GMT
    Connection: keep-alive

    Will this solve my purpose.

  • Hi Dhaval,

    I am assuming that you want to redirect from or page to your new page. You add the following in your default.asp page to do an 301 redirecetion.

    <%@ Language=VBScript %>
      Response.Status="301 Moved Permanently"
      Response.AddHeader "Home","/home/pages/default.aspx"

    This may solve your prob.

  • Hi Prithwijit,

    I tried same but it is working only in IE. Its not getting redirected in Firefox, Chrome etc.

    Is there any browser specific code required?
