    I have got a strange issue when I configured Sitefinity project as Virtual Directory.

    Everything works fine except when I publish anything (including: pages, templates, document etc), it always redirects to log in page and log off the user.

    I debugged and found that Sitefinity goes to root website URI instead of virtual directory whenever it performs any operation.

    One important thing I noticed that when I deploy the same project as web application on root, everything start working fine.

    Please find my deployment location and installed software details as mentioned below:
    - Windows Server 2008 SP2 32 bit
    - IIS 7
    - Sitefinity 4
    - SQL Server 2008
    + Deployed location folder structure: directory application) directory application)

    Your quick response in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Hello YASIR,

    Can you, please try converting the Virtual Directory you have your site installed to an Application in IIS (please see the attached screenshot). The problem may occur because of the workflow that is activated when you try to publish something, and it's checking whether you have the proper rights to publish the item. However, since the authentication cookie is not the proper one Sitefinity is asking you to log in again. The proper way of handling this is to add an Application in IIS where you can install your SitefinityWebApp, not a Virtual Directory. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

    All the best,
