Can I use parent paths in ASP?

It is not possible to use parent paths on our IIS7 Servers. Instead, absolute virtual paths should be used. Code which includes a file by using parent path typically looks like this:

With the virtual path, it would look like this:

There are certain occations, where this can cause issues, most often, it is due to a file being placed in the root of the domain folder, and accessed via parent path. If the file is in the root, then the app_data should be used instead due to security settings on the service.

On occations where a file (typically being a database) is added in the root and accessed via parent path, this procedure will not be possible. Instead another method should be applied, either by placing the file on one of the domains, and access it through a script. If using a database-file, an altertive solution is to use our MSSQL or MySQL server.
