Error: Cannot write configuration file



All virtual directories must have their redirection removed.
Everytime you configure redirection from one top-level directory in Windows Server 2008, all the settings are propagated to lower-level directories. This error is generally generated because these virtual directories don’t have a physical path.
Hope you get what i am talking about.
Therefore, you must have to remove redirection from all these virtual directories except from the one that you want redirected.
The solution is mere simple.
 open a command prompt window. Change the directory to Windowssystem32Inetsrv. and Then run this command: appcmd set config “/” /section:httpredirect /enabled:false -commit:apphost.Change and for yours specific environment.
Hope it helps solving your redirection problems. 🙂
