Parent pathing allows code running on a website to understand its file structure. Specifically, it allows code to reference locations relative to the running location via ..\ or ../. Ektron's "relative includes" use code that relies on parent pathing.

To enable Parent Pathing:

Prerequisite : If ASP does not exist under IIS, you need to install it.

  1. Open IIS Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Ektron site.
  3. Double click the ASP feature.
  4. In the list of ASP properties, set Enable Parent Paths to True .
